4 March 2017, Montebello Villa Hotel – iLearners Inc. launches iLibrary in time for its 10th year of reaching out to the pupils belonging to communities challenged by poverty and illiteracy in the rural areas of Cebu, iLearners Inc. is intensifying its efforts in promoting literacy and improving the way pupils learn through this latest program.
The iLibrary is a multimedia library, which incorporates physical books with other tools for learning that are beneficial to a pupil’s learning in the digital age. The iLibrary will consist of (3) book shelves of paper books, an art section, two (2) units of computer, an AV (Audio/Visual) set and a music station. The iLibrary will be installed in three of iLearners Inc. ‘s beneficiary public primary institutions – Lunas, Kaluangan II and Caohagan Elementary Schools situated in Carcar, Asturias and Caohagan Island Mactan respectively.
“The iLibrary will surely boost the students’ interest to learn and arouse creativity,” exclaims Andrew “Doyzkie” Buenaviaje , iLearners Inc. President and Founder. “I am excited for the completion of the first multimedia library to be installed in Lunas Elementary School before the year ends, “ Buenaviaje added.
“iLearners Inc. is delighted that Montebello Villa Hotel sides with our advocacy and has showed their support by awarding us with a music station, which is one of the components of the iLibrary.” Doyzkie shared.
“We believe in iLearners’ advocacy which aims to eradicate illiteracy especially in the grassroots level. Supporting iLearners would mean supporting literacy since they do not give something that only lasts for a day or two. Rather, it is one of the most basic needs, that is education. It is through education that the youth learns the basic skills needed to survive as adults in the new world. Thus, molds them to become a successful individual in the future – who knows we’ve inspired the next Steve Jobs,” expresses Luis Martin Alvarez, General Manager Montebello VillaHotel.
“Music is life, and we believe the youth deserve to learn more about it, even at such early age. To begin with, a school without exposing the students to music is not a comprehensive education due to the proven academic, social, and personal benefits that it offers. And, in exposing the students from rural areas to today’s music technology, we will never know the difference it can make to them; it might aid in unleashing unique skills and talents from the youth of Lunas Elementary School that can make a profound change in the world,” Mr. Alvarez added.
iLearners Inc. is a non profit organization that aims to eliminate rural illiteracy with its tailored fit programs to address the problems that are faced by the charitable group’s recipient schools. It was founded in 9 December 2007 and has been registered through SEC in 2009.
