VP Leni was accompanied by Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto, as well as representatives from private sector partners that made the initiative possible in Barangay Pinagbuhatan: JCI Manila, Ligaya ng Panginoon-Youth, and PLDT Enterprise.

This is part of BAYANIHAN e-SKWELA, the initiative that VP Leni and her office launched to extend different kinds of support for students, parents, and teachers amid the shift to distance/blended learning.
