With the increasing demand for English teachers, 51Talk is expecting a surge of Filipinos signing-up and joining the platform to teach and earn while staying safe at home.
51Talk donates much-needed medical supplies to the Philippines to aid in the country’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The shipment includes personnel protective equipment (PPEs) and nucleic acid detection test kits with a total value of PHP 5.25M.
Three hospitals in Metro Manila received the medical equipment which 51Talk donated to the Federation of Filipino Chinese Chambers of Commerce & Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII). Beneficiaries of the PPEs are the Philippine General Hospital-Department of Pediatrics, St. Luke’s Medical Center-Institute of Pediatrics and Child Health and the Metropolitan Medical Center Manila.
The donation boxes have the phrase “Mountain Shared, Hardships Borne” attached to it. The phrase, which comes from a famous Chinese poet, speaks of the interconnectedness of peoples and societies in times of hardship and need.
“What we are experiencing are extraordinary circumstances. As challenging as it seems for most of us, I admire the resolve and the courage of the Filipino front liners who, day in and day out, are tending to the sick to keep the rest of the population safe and healthy,” said 51Talk Country Head Jennifer Que. “On behalf of our 51Talk home-based online English teachers, we salute our front liners!”
The home-based online workforce has proven to be very resilient amid on-going lockdowns in the Philippines due to COVID-19 while traditional forms of businesses and livelihoods had been disrupted. With the increasing demand for English teachers, 51Talk is expecting a surge of Filipinos signing-up and joining the platform to teach and earn while staying safe at home.
51Talk is looking for thousands of home-based online teachers to give one-on-one English lessons. You can earn up to Php80K as a full-time teacher and enjoy a wide range of perks –
