Knowledge Channel Foundation renewed its partnership with PCTA
Knowledge Channel Foundation renewed its partnership with the Philippine Cable and Telecommunications Association (PCTA) in order to provide learning materials for students who were adapting to distance learning.
This, as the said initiative aimed to benefit more learners as they studied at home with the extended reach of Knowledge Channel to more cable-connected homes nationwide — including remote areas with limited-to-no internet connection.
The renewed partnership would bring Knowledge Channel to as many students, parents, and teachers as to help them with distance learning.
Currently, the Philippine Cable and Telecommunications Association had 360 regular members and 32 affiliate members reaching more than 75% of cable-connected households.
Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. president and executive director Rina Lopez-Bautista said that her fervent wish was that through the bayanihan effort with cable providers, distance learning would become more accessible, affordable, feasible, and enjoyable for every Filipino child.
The Philippine Cable and Telecommunications Association urged all its cable-operator members not only to add Knowledge Channel in their line-up but also to put the said channel in its most affordable packages.
DepEd Regional Director in Region X Dr. Art Bayocot also attended the memorandum signing of the Philippine Cable and Telecommunications Association and the Knowledge Channel Foundation.
