OUR CALL TO ACTION
Pilipinas Rotaract MDIO aims to raise at least 1000 USD for Project REACH (Radio-Based Education Assisting Children at Home). This project aims to donate various radio station equipment to setup radio-based learning delivery systems in five (5) schools in the Philippines to enable them to deliver lessons via radio broadcasting. These schools cater to Aeta students, an indigenous group of people living in the northern part of the island of Luzon in the Philippines.
WHY WE CARE
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, face-to-face classes in the Philippines have been indefinitely suspended. Learners have to shift to distance learning delivery modes such as online, television, radio, and printed modules to continue their education. Unfortunately, not all learners can participate in distance learning setups especially those who live in far flung communities with limited to no phone and internet signal as well as those who do not have gadgets. Some parents in the Philippines did not earn an educational diploma and hence, cannot assist in mentoring their children with the modular learning delivery.
We believe that learning must continue as education is a passport to a lot of opportunities for better quality of life for people. By setting up radio-based learning delivery systems in far flung schools catering to children of indigenous people, Rotaractors can ensure that indigenous students will not be deprived of education that will help them participate in society. The project will also be sustainable post-pandemic as the school can continue delivering lessons to Aeta students living in far-flung communities through radio broadcasting therefore, reducing the need for students’ daily long miles of walk to schools.
Education has already been a far-reaching dream to them pre-pandemic with students walking long miles from their homes in the mountains to reach their schools in the lowland. Let us not let COVID-19 be another stumbling block for them to reach their dreams.
