Vice President Leni Robredo visited the OVP Community Learning Hub in Lupang Arenda, Brgy. Sta Ana, Taytay, Rizal on Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2020.

During the surprise visit, VP Leni was able to observe the operations of the hub, which caters to learners who need additional support in their studies—from access to computers, printers, and other gadgets and equipment to free internet connection. Trained volunteer tutors are also present to assist the children with their lessons.

The Community Learning Hub in Taytay was made possible by the office’s partnership with the alumni of OVP’s Angat Buhay Young Leaders in Government (ABYLG) Fellowship, led by Kgd. Tobit Cruz of Brgy. Sta. Ana, along with the barangay’s Sangguniang Kabataan officials, Millennials PH – Taytay, and the youth group Angat Kabataan. This initiative is part of BAYANIHAN e-SKWELA, launched by the OVP to support students, teachers, and families amid the shift to distance/blended learning.
