Calbayog project aims to respond to MDG

By Ninfa B Quirante

Catbalogan, Samar (December 3) -- Calbayog LGU with the different barangays have hatched a project that has complemented educational services in the city.

Dubbed as FACES, which means facilitating access to complete elementary schools, it funded the wages of teachers in the different barangay schools.

This is done to respond to the need to achieve universal primary education which includes expanding early childhood care and education, and providing free and compulsory primary education for all as UN's Millennium Development Goal # 2.

According to City Local Government Operations Officer (CLGOO) Valentin Bajet, City Treasurer, Federico Resente porposed to the School Board that the members of the Liga ng Barangay and the SK chapters will contribute ten thousand pesos each for the project.

The barangay officials were just willing to do so, after it was presented during one of the Liga ng Barangay meeting.

So that the different barangays have enjoyed complete elementary grades and their children need not walk far to enrol.

"For 157 barangays in Calbayog, the amount they contributed to a trust fund was enough to hire teachers in Calbayog," Bajet said.

Aside from providing the needed elementary levels, they were also able to employ teachers.

"Of course they are not necessarily paid like the other teachers paid by DepEd," added Bajet.

In January this year, United Nations (UN) warned the Philippines in leaving the poor behind when it comes to their education. (PIA-Samar) [top]
