Word Vision Philippines through its Chairperson, Chief Justice Reynato S. Puno (ret.), pledged its solidarity to the Department of Education (DepEd)’s Brigada Eskwela (BE) and Oplan Balik Eskwela (OBE).

During the national BE and OBE campaigns kick-off, Chief Justice Puno said World Vision is highly honored to be considered a partner of DepEd in serving all Filipino children.

“Our decades of collaboration between World Vision and the Department of Education have seen millions of students achieve improved functional literacy through equitable access to age-appropriate, culture-sensitive and contextualized learning process,” the former Supreme Court chief magistrate shared.

In her keynote message, DepEd Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones said she knows very well the contribution of World Vision for education, for the society and for the welfare not only of the learners but also of many Filipinos.

“Right now, ang World Vision ay tumutulong sa atin sa ating pag shift sa edukasyon-kalidad, yung pag punta natin sa edukalidad, dahil magbibigay sila ng advice sa atin hinggil sa technology. Hindi lamang sa technology kundi sa health at ibang mga bagay-bagay pa,” Secretary Briones said.

(Right now, World Vision helps us in our shift to quality education, the edukalidad program” because they give advice about technology, and not only about technology but also health and on other matters.)

Chief Justice Puno invited both individuals and organizations to support our children’s education by saying that these challenging times call for a revitalized alliance of stakeholders as the state recognizes the complementary roles of public and private institutions in the educational system.

“Helping ensure the unimpeded delivery of quality education to every student means upholding the constitution’s provision on protecting and promoting the right of all citizens to quality education at all levels, and on taking appropriate steps to make such education accessible to all,” he added.
