Program bridges Digital Literacy Gap

Ayala Foundation signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the City of Manila, Division of City Schools Manila, and Asian Terminals Inc. for the implementation of the Ayala Foundation’s <code/it> program in Manila’s 73 public elementary schools in Manila City Hall last Friday,October 11, 2019.

<code/it> is a digital literacy learning program that was conceptualized by Ayala Foundation and which aims to introduce basic computer science and coding concepts to public school children at an early age. With a desire to help bridge the digital divide that continues to affect many developing communities in the Philippines.

Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko” Moreno Domagoso stated that the said computer program marks a new beginning to help spread digital literacy awareness in Manila public schools.

Ayala Foundation piloted the <code/it> program in 12 schools including CENTEX Manila and CENTEX Batangas across the country earlier this year. With the successful pilot, Ayala Foundation is now ready to scale up the program to a more significant national level, starting with our nation’s capital region.
