- To help with the continuity of students’ learning, and to address the need for more printing materials a project was launched in a municipality in North Cotabato
- Through barter trade, they launched “Karne at Papel Para sa Kinabukasan”
Modular learning is one of the most common learning modality in many schools particularly the public schools because not everyone can access the internet to do the online learning. In regards to this, most public schools together with the teachers in every school are asking for donations like bond papers, ink and printers which they can use for the welfare of the students.
In line with this, Board member Rosalie Hallado Cabaya of North Cotabato “in partnership with the Barangay Council, Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Cotabato, Former Board Member LORETO “Nonoy” VARGAS CABAYA, Jr., and benevolent individuals who extended their time and resources” they launched the “Karne at Papel Para sa Kinabukasan.”
One ream of bond paper is equivalent to 1.25 kilos of pork meat from Cabaya’s Farm. The act they did is with the use of barter which means the exchange of goods and or services without any amount of money involved.
From this project, they were able to collect “85 reams of bond paper out of bartered 106.25 kgs of pork meat.”
The selected schools in the Municipality of Aleosan will be given 5 reams of bond paper each.
As she posted on her Facebook account, Cabaya clearly stated the needs of the public school that needs to be addressed in order to continue the learning of the students.
“Teacher needs bulk of donated bond papers due to the fact that the allotted budget might not be sufficient to cover all the expenditures with regards to the production of modules. These modules had said to play a vital role when it comes to the aforementioned modality of learning. “– Board Member Rosalie Cabaya
