Lend a hand and Help Out

Because of COVID-19, students among others, have trouble coping the obstacles brought about by this pandemic. Yes, it has been virtually 2 years, as well as its results is creating chaos to fun knowing amongst students that come from the least, lost and excluded.

In my combined class, for example, much less than fifty percent of my 38 learners have this Android cellphone; thus, lots of them can not join our Google meet session. Yes, this situation calls for me to think about service to this trouble, thinking about that some my students are having parents who either out of job, could not afford one or any various other reasons they could have.

Also if a kid is having enthusiasm to discover through a half-day online a week class simply to have a feeling of being with his/her co-online students, if there is no offered Android cellphone about, it truly saddening to the kid. While various other of his/her synchronously abled learning companions are enjoying and also significant interactions via these academic technologies like iPad, desktop computer, lappie or what, a plain cellular phone he/she does not have any.

Yes, either such is being made use of by one of his/her parents, siblings or what, having the chance to sign up with on the internet course or simply “Online Kumustahan” or simply Monday Early morning Petition as well as National Anthem ceremonies, becomes a tiresome one. Contributed to this kind of issue is the net connection, either not enough tons or reduced net connection does happen, not simply when however always. Given the reality Philippines has one of the slowest net speed worldwide.

Had a study on this and my students with one of the most tested scenario are really in need of assistance. Considering that I think that there is always a means to the highway, pun planned, we, my colleagues need to do something out of this challenge.

We, after that, asked around for old cellphone device any participants of the community could have one not being used, they may also, donate such to the youngsters. Well, as of this writing, we are still awaiting for benevolent donors to promise to these youngsters and also that understands, sooner or later, these youngsters might pay it onward and also do same act of compassion to others seeking assistance.

It’s a cliche that it takes a village to inform a kid; yet, it is also a great chance to substitute their very own welfare, extra so, this moment of pandemic, where real heroes prevail.

This pandemic has actually brought us to a phase where everybody can either be type or unkind, valuable or self-seeking, supportive or indifferent, provider or hoarder, to name a few. Which one do you think is better an actions one should observe and also be rational and also sound and saint? Simple, right?

Granting is acquired behavior to those who had actually been assisted by those around during their most trying times. Paying it forward, much easier to do, the kindness done to them by “Good Samaritans” around who are greater than happy to expand aid to those who are least, shed and also neglected. Yes, like these children are.

Well, if you are interested to contribute your old cellphone for these children, for their online or blended courses, do not think twice to come by our college and also see just how you might pitch in as well as help out.
