The actress launched her project on July 1 in response to several students’ requests on her personal Twitter page. Evangelista previously sold one of her paintings to buy 550 tablets for students in need amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

For the upcoming school year, the Department of Education (DepEd) plans to enforce a “blended learning” strategy by utilizing television, radio and the internet as modes of instruction. The DepEd began its month-long “remote enrollment” last June, and public schools are scheduled to start their classes on Aug. 24. /ra
