Among these initiatives is Google.org’s grant of USD 250,000 to the Asian Institute of Journalism and Communication (AIJC) which will be utilized to equip teachers the needed tools for two teaching modes under distance learning -- the online and printed modules which will bank on SMS and regular consultations.

Google has also partnered with the Department of Education for the national rollout of G Suite for Education. There’s also the implementation of mobile accessibility tools for students including Search and YouTube, mounted in collaboration with Globe and Smart.
