Paolo Duterte wants e-books access for every barangay

Davao City Rep. Paolo Duterte has introduced a measure seeking to provide electronic books (e-Books) for every barangay to increase access to educational resources.

The proposed Ebooks for the Barangay Program (House Bill 10156) will also help improve digital literacy among the students, Duterte said.

Under the program, the eBooks for the Barangay will be under the Department of Education.

“This program aims to provide each barangay with access to free and curated digital learning resources that support the academic needs of its residents,” said Duterte in the bill.

Duterte said his proposal is in line with the government’s e-Governance bill which manifests the need to capitalize on the country’s digital infrastructure.
