IMEC in Bambang Elementary School

We wanted to provide an update on the success of the Isa Mundo Education Centre (IMEC) in the village of Bambang Bulacan - the beloved community where Isa Mundo Founder, Paul Lorilla was born and raised.

Following are excerpts from the 2017-18 IMEC Report provided by the IMEC Lead Coordinator: 

This school year, 2017-2018, Bambang Elementary School and in partnership with ISA MUNDO FOUNDATION, through the help and support of Mr. Paul Lorilla, conducted a series of sessions for giving basic education in computer lesson for selected Grade 5 pupils.  This program aims to develop children with readiness and have enough knowledge about computers while attending public school.
The training was handled and supervised by Ms. Meann C. Ruga. The integration in every subject is the focus of the sessions and to give the pupils knowledge about some important details on using computer.  The program conducted last February 26, 2018 to March 23, 2018 was given to the selected pupils.  They learned the basic education of how to use MS Word, MS Excel and MS Powerpoint.  The activities given are part of their other subjects like Filipino, English, Math and Science.
As the result of the program, the integration of knowledge regarding the use of computer is evident and observed, the pupils learned important skills from the lessons given to them and enjoyed every session in discovering new things about the basic knowledge on using computer and technology.

Through ISA MUNDO FOUNDATION, our vision and mission for the school especially to the pupils are truly achieved and the quality of education has improved. Bambang Elementary School is very blessed and fortunate to have kind-hearted sponsors like ISA MUNDO Foundation.  They are always ready to lend their hands in order to support our projects in improving the quality of education of our pupils.
We will be providing additional support to upgrade technology, communication and network connection to the Bambang IMEC in 2019 and begin discussion on how to fund after school teachers to reach other children and youth in the village who may not be able to attend regular school hours.
