has changed the way we live, the way we work, and the way we teach and
learn. We need to be flexible and adapt, but most are finding it hard
because of the technological requirements these uncertain and rapidly
evolving times have imposed upon us.
of this crisis, more than 5,600 UP students are in danger of not being
able to continue their education. They cannot afford the technology and
tools that have now become integral to learning. Around 1,600 of them
have no resources at all. For at least 4,000 more, sustained use of
technologies is no longer feasible because the pandemic has rendered
their households financially vulnerable.
The University requests your support in enabling these Iskolar ng Bayan to move forward and ultimately reach their goal of graduating.
We are asking you to be their kaagapay.
