Fifty stay-at-home mothers in Malabon City are now certified “e-nanays” assisting their children in online learning.
They were presented certificates by Mayor Len Len Oreta last December 21 at the City of Malabon University for completing a two-month program set up by the city government to enable them to learn to use computers for their and their children’s benefit.
One “graduate,” Delma Marimon, said it was a challenge to learn to be a “techie” apart from performing motherly household roles.
Marimon said, “I admit that when my kids would ask me about emails or Zoom sessions for their online classes, I was so afraid as I didn’t know anything about online stuff. I realized that in order to help our kids learn during this time of pandemic, we also have to learn on our own and equip ourselves with the digital tools.”
In October, the local government launched a new program specifically to “transform stay-at-home nanays into e-nanays.”
