My heartiest congratulations to Foundation, CICT and PhilCecNet for this commendable rollout in the Philippines. I wish the digital literacy campaign all the success. It holds great promise in bettering the lives of millions of women, by helping them bridge the digital divide and honing their skills, thereby improving their prospects of better livelihood.
