Chavit brings Gracia to Sarangani

ALABEL, Sarangani (August 6, 2020) – Mayor Luis Chavit Singson (left) of Narvacan, Ilocos Sur, who is also the president of the League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP), presents Gracia Telecommunications and Gracia Care Educational TV to Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon and all the municipal mayors of Sarangani, guests and officials from the Department of Education regional and division offices, and the Department of the Interior and Local Government, on August 4. Hosted by Sarangani and supported by the LMP local leadership, the event was also graced by Atty. Jason John Joyce, mayor of Jose Abad Santos and LMP vice president for internal affairs, and Senator Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquaio. As the chairman of the board, Singson said Gracia Telecom’s main objective is “to help in the digitalization of the whole country through the mayors and the local government units.” Gracia Telecom was “established primarily to making lives easy through enhanced communication access.” On the other hand, Gracia Care Educational TV is a multi-platform, cost-efficient distance learning alternative made possible by advanced use of satellite and digital signals. Gracia Care Educational TV’s “service is free to students, as it can be carried by all cable TV operators and broadcasted over free to air TV and to an ordinary transistor radio, as it uses a cutting-edge distancing learning infrastructure to allow students living in far-flung barangays in the province to watch recorded lessons through satellite TV.” (Jake Narte – Jori Mae Samillano/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
