PHILIPPINES – A word from a teacher working with the children in IM’S Child Sponsorship Program in the Payatas Dumpsite: Teachers are doing their best to fulfill their duties as facilitators and academic guide yet endure the shortcomings regarding equipment. It is even harder for parents or guardians of students in modular type of learning who have been taking the place of an academic teacher in their homes to fulfill the need of the student to understand every lesson. For students in modular type of learning, it is really difficult because they do not have enough equipment such as smartphone, laptop or desktop, and internet connection. They are the ones who endure all the negative effects of this pandemic which is not limited to scarcity of equipment. Although they have time allotment for other questions or instructions to be answered by their teachers every day, they still suffer on how to contact through unstable data connection. Above all, they are having a terrible hard time of learning relying on their own way. Thank you for your prayers and support for these teachers, students and families especially now. Jude 24 & 25
