(MHSAAI) and Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI) These schools, in need of multimedia learning resources, are located in the islands of Binangonan and Cardona, and in the mountains and hills of Morong, Teresa, Baras, Tanay and Jalajala.

Edric C. Calma, MHSAAI President and KCFI Director of Operations said, “this project follows what both KCFI and MHSAAI have been advocating and working hard to accomplish: help prepare the young children for the 21st century by providing them with access to relevant and effective curriculum-based multimedia learning resources and by training their teachers on the best possible teaching strategies so that they (teachers) could be able help unleash the vast potentials of their young learners.”
