Malabon transforms moms into ‘e-nanays’

In Malabon, at least 50 mothers were trained by the city government to edit videos and make powerpoint presentations to help their children in blended distance learning.

Mayor Antolin Oreta III said the mothers were given private tutors under the “e-nanay” tutorial project held at the Malabon University.

Oreta said Malabon was the first local government to train mothers to operate a computer or laptop and to use Word, Excel and Powerpoint as well as operate Zoom meetings.

“They are also heroes of this pandemic as they have multiple tasks. So it is appropriate to give back to them by equipping them with the necessary skills to cope with the digital shift in education,” he said.

The mothers can then teach the skills they learned to their children for the online classes.
