Senior Citizens Learning Basic Computer Program
« on: September 25, 2012, 09:16:47 AM »

Around 200 senior citizens here are now considered “computer literates,” thanks to a free computer training program offered by the city government.

Percival Pasuelo, executive assistant for information technology of the city mayor’s office, said the senior citizens acquired various basic computer skills through the continuing enhanced computer literacy program (CLP) of the local government.

He said they specifically learned basic computer operations skills, word processing and even “Facebooking” through the CLP’s hands-on trainings and workshops.

The trainees will receive certificates of completion from the city government during the culmination program of the training program’s third phase on Oct. 3, he said.

Pasuelo said Social Welfare Secretary Corazon Soliman will keynote the culmination rites, which will be held in a shopping mall here.

Soliman’s office, through administrative assistant Richard Allen Silva, already confirmed her attendance to the gathering that will coincide with the nationwide celebration of the Senior Citizen’s Week.

The city government launched the free computer training program for senior citizen’s about a year ago as part of the priority initiatives of the SHEEP-CLP.

SHEEP stands for Social Transformation, Human Empowerment, Economic Diversification, Environment Security and Regeneration and Participatory Governance and Transparency, which are the city’s main development thrusts.

The city government earlier launched the CLP as a major component of the SHEEP program’s education initiatives.

Pasuelo said 40 trainees joined the initial phase of the training program, which was completed in December last year.

Last May, SHEEP-CLP completed the program’s second phase that was highlighted by the presence of “Lola Techie,” the likable grandmother who figured in Bayantel’s popular broadband Internet television commercial.

In support of the training program, Pasuelo said the local government released earlier this year 10 brand new personal computers to the city’s senior citizens and persons with disability associations.

"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
