DepEd, Tan Yan Kee, ABS-CBN and Lufthansa ink partnership for education

Pasig City (18 February) -- The Department of Education (DepEd) signed a memorandum of agreement with Tan Yan Kee Foundation, which will collaborate with ABSCBN Foundation in producing new episodes of the series "Mathtinik".

This series aims to instill in schoolchildren appreciation for Mathematics. It comprises modules that make Mathematical concepts easy to understand and entertaining for schoolchildren.

DepEd also sealed an agreement with Lufthansa Technik Philippines and Tan Yan Kee Foundation to provide 2,000 armchairs to schoolchildren in selected divisions in the Ilocos Region.

DepEd Secretary Jesli Lapus said, "We thank our partners from the private sector who recognize the value of education, and who give utmost priority to it."

"This agreement speaks of their commitment to help the department deliver quality educational services which our schoolchildren rightfully deserve," he added.

Through DepEd?s Adopt-A-School Program, companies and individuals from the private sector, non-government, civic and church organizations can help public schools in various ways. Donors can avail themselves of up to 150 percent tax incentives in recognition of their goodwill towards public schoolchildren.

The DepEd chief continues to call on other private sector companies to join the Adopt-A-School Program. "I urge the private sector to work with the department and help us respond to the challenge of providing quality education for all."

More than 400 private sector donors have supported the Adopt-A-School Program since Lapus relaunched it in 2006. In 2009 alone, the program generated PhP7.3 Billion worth of pledges. (PIA) [top]
