Education as an area of focus has always been a top priority for RC Makati. Its passion for education has not dimmed with the drastic changes prompted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Under its Education Under a New Normal scheme, the Club is partnering with the Office of the Vice President for Community Learning Hubs, which is designed to assist learners who have no access to the educational materials, devices and internet connectivity required for distance learning.
On December 4, the Club turned over to VP Leni Robredo computer units to be installed in 23 Community Learning Hubs across the country under the Club’s own banner project, RCM Learning Center. Doing the honors at the turnover were Pres. Peter Manzano, with IPP Bimbo Mills, Dir. Eddie Galvez, and First Ann Pam.
With the instructional strategy shifting from the traditional in-person classroom teaching to distance education using internet-based technology, the Club has shown resilience by adapting to the demands of the situation.
This project is funded by the reallocated budget for the girls’ dormitory project that has been temporarily suspended on account of the pandemic.
