13 Cagayan disabled kids avail "Education for All" benefits

Tuguegarao City (1 August) -- 13 disabled children here were afforded full scholarship grants under the Education for All program of the government.

The City Social Welfare Office and the Stimulation and Therapeutic Activity Center released some P85,000 pesos to finance said grant.

They are now enrolled at the Holy Trinity Montessori School and University of St. Louis under the Dinggin Ka Literacy Program.

Orlando Omoso and Morris Pinzon both grade III pupils and their parents thank PGMA for the program hoping to attain their goals and live normal lives.

The children likewise received free school supplies, wheelchairs, eyeglass and free therapy sessions.

Meanwhile, the Dept. of Education R02 has distributed about 24 computer units in selected elementary and secondary schools in the province.

This is under the Priority Development Fund Assistance Program of the agency to better equip the students in the field of information technology.

On the other hand, Marites Llanes, Chief Regional Planning Unit said DepEd is not only focused on the engineering of the teaching process but rather on the expansion of the curriculum to include gender sensitivity and equality among students.

She said the agency's Sagip Eskuwela Program likewise brought back to school some 28 school dropouts. (PIA-Cagayan) [top]
