Manila trains women senior citizens on digital literacy
The Manila City Library (MCL) celebrated National Women's Month and the 64th Public Library Day by conducting its "Digital Literacy Program for Women Senior Citizens" on Thursday, March 9.
The program aimed to teach basic smartphone and computer skills, as well as the use of apps such as Google and Meta apps, to a total of 111 senior citizens.
The attendees were also guided in creating their own Facebook and Google accounts, as well as processing online government sites like the Philippine Statistics Authority in requesting birth certificates.
The program was part of the city library's efforts to assist the elderly in familiarizing themselves with modern gadgets.
Mylene Villanueva, the MCL Director, expressed her excitement about the program and emphasized the importance of digital literacy in today's world. She hopes that this initiative will encourage more senior citizens to explore the benefits of technology and continue learning about it.
The MCL plans to conduct more similar programs in the future to support the community's digital literacy.
