The famed Mayor of Manila Isko Moreno formed a partnership with Leading ICT company Acer Philippines to help him out in his Digital Literacy for All project.
The project aims to help achieve higher digital literacy rate and convenient access to public libraries for Manila citizens.
It advocates to give equal opportunities to every person to learn the digital skills that will be relevant in their workplace and daily life.
Aside from this, Mayor Isko also alloted spaces inside Manila public libraries for the purpose of group discussions, meetings, and other collaborative engagements.
Acer Philippines said they are honored for this partnership in the pursuit of accessible digital education in Manila.
“It is an honor for Acer to partner with the City of Manila in promoting access to quality education. We are proud of Mayor Isko Moreno’s efforts to make digital education more accessible to Manileños and provide opportunities for growth and development through this partnership,” said Acer Philippines Inc. Managing Director, Mr. Manuel Wong.
Mayor Isko said he is hopeful for the growth in knowledge in the city with this latest technology.
“When I was a councilor way back 1998, I established a computer learning center even though I know that Internet resources were limited. I am backed with this hope that technology will soon catch up and be vital for acquiring knowledge,” said Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno.
“I am glad I carried this vision over when I became a Vice Mayor and now the Mayor of Manila City. With Acer, I am grateful that better computer and library facilities become more accessible to Manilenos,” the Mayor continued.
Under the agreement, 42 Acer desktop units will be distributed in 11 Manila City public libraries. These libraries include Manila-Sacramento Friendship Library (5 computers), San Nicolas Public Library (4 computers), Tondo Public Library (4 computers), Valeriano E. Fugoso Library (4 computers), Main library Ref. Division (8 computers), Kapitan Isidro Mendoza Public Library (2 computers), Dapitan Complex Library (2 computers), Arsenio H.
