PIA Press Release

DepEd 7 inks pact with Cebu NGOs in Adopt-a-School Program

by Roberto M. Cabardo

Cebu City (23 June) -- To further strengthen its programs and services this school year, the Department of Education in Central Visayas forges an alliance with non-government organizations in Cebu.

Public Information Officer Lea Apao disclosed that DepEd 7 is set to sign a memorandum of agreement with the organizations this afternoon which will be attended by the local media and some key officials of the city and province of Cebu.

Aside from DepEd 7, other proponents of the Adopt-a-School-Program are the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry, International Pharmaceuticals Inc., Coast Pacific, Deco Sales and a few others.

The program is aimed at alleviating the plight of thousands of schoolchildren who suffer from lack of classroom and school facilities and equipment which greatly affect the quality of learning that takes place in schools here.

DepEd 7 Regional Director Recaredo Borgonia earlier said though that the abovementioned problems are better addressed this year for they already anticipated them to occur as there has been an increase in the enrolment of Grade 1 in elementary and First year level in the secondary level as many of those in the private schools had transferred to government-run schools due to financial crisis.

The same official also hopes though that the linkage will further strengthen the efficiency and capability of the department in solving some of its perennial problems.

The alliance of DepEd and non-government organizations brings hope for better and more qualitative learning experiences of schoolchildren in Cebu's public schools and its neighboring provinces in Central Visayas.

As the State-of-the Nation Address of Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is just a month away, this development in the region is surely a bonus to one of her major agenda which is providing Education for All. (PIA Cebu) [top]
