Distance learning has become a way of life in this new normal, and Globe continues to support initiatives that will help ease the struggles of students, parents, and teachers in the absence of face-to-face classes.
Globe has partnered with Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI), ABS-CBN, and Mary’s Way Foundation through the Big Blue Hearts Campaign to enable learning with the help of free internet connection.
Under the project, KCFI, ABS-CBN and Mary’s Way Foundation were able to successfully raise funds to equip 102 students and teachers of Balibago Elementary School and Sta. Rosa Elementary School Central 1 and 3 with Globe At Home Prepaid WiFi modems.
On the other hand, Globe joined the campaign to support the beneficiaries with data load subsidies good for six months. This allows the beneficiaries to continue their Grade 1 classes and access Knowledge Channel videos and Basa Bilang learning resources at home.
KCFI launched its Basa Bilang project in 2018 to improve the reading and math skills of early graders through the production and dissemination of animated and live action video lessons based on the Department of Education (DepEd) curriculum. KCFI helps create a solid educational foundation for early reading, numeracy, and oracy—critical factors in a child’s educational development.
