State pension fund Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) will adopt a total of 25 schools nationwide this year as it partners with the Department of Education (DepEd) once again for the 2022 Adopt-A-School Program (ASP), as part of its corporate social responsibility.

“With the reopening of face-to-face classes, our government needs help in addressing the logistical constraints faced by public schools. This year, we have increased the amount of the Adopt-a-School program assistance package from Php300,000 last year to Php400,000 for each of the 25 beneficiary schools,” GSIS president and general manager Wick Veloso said.

The pension fund chief pointed out that this CSR program is also in response to the call of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. during his SONA, to help provide assistive devices such as computers, Internet connectivity and educational tools so that children “might participate fully in the digital community here and abroad.”

GSIS has allocated a total of P10 million for the adoption of 25 DepEd schools across the country. The DepEd program encourages partner agencies from the government and private sectors to address the needs of government schools located in the poorest provinces or low-income municipalities.

Among the areas of assistance that GSIS will provide for its adopted schools include support in the form of technology and assistive learning devices, infrastructure, physical facilities and furniture.

Since its implementation in 2014, some 85 schools have benefitted from the program.

For more information on the Adopt a School program, interested parties may visit the GSIS website or GSIS Facebook page (@gsis.ph); mail gsiscares@gsis.gov.ph; or call the GSIS Contact Center at 8847-4747 (if in Metro Manila) or 1-800-8-847-4747 (for Globe and TM subscribers) and 1-800-10-847-4747 (for Smart, Sun, and Talk ‘N Text subscribers). Prospective applicants may also coordinate with the GSIS Corporate Social Advocacies and Public Relations Facilities Department at ravpalad@gsis.gov.ph and (02) 8479-3571 to 72.
