China donates 2K tablets to Pinoy students
The Chinese Embassy in Manila donated 2,000 Huawei tablets to DepEd. This is to support the blended distance learning system in the country.
Chinese Ambassador Huang Xilian turned over the tablets to Education Secretary Leonor Briones.
The donation is “intended to help the Philippine students to overcome difficulties and to get better access to distance learning resources amid the pandemic”, Huang said.
The embassy would continue supporting “the education endeavor of the Philippines to the best of its ability, and further implement the Chinese Government Scholarship and Chinese Ambassador Scholarship projects,” he added.
Schools located in disadvantaged areas will be the priority in the distribution of the tablets.
