DepEd, partners seal agreement
by DepEd release

The Department of Education recently signed an agreement with its partners to symbolize their commitment to support the agency in addressing critical educational needs.

“In order for us to achieve our goals, there should be a clear synergy with our friends from the private sector,” Sec. Leonor Briones said.

The private partners that signed a memorandum of agreement with DepEd are GAKKEN, (Philippines) Inc.; Affiliated Network for Social Accountability; Cebuana Lhuillier Foundation, Inc.; First Natgas Power Corporation; First Gen Hydro Power Corporation; FGen. LNG Corporation; FGP Corporation; Prime Meridian Powergen Corporation; Kosmos Technomobile, Inc.; Mariwasa Siam Ceramics Inc. and SCG Marketing Philippines Inc.; National Grid Corporation of the Philippines; and PhilAm Foundation, Inc.

Their pledges/donations range from provision of equipment and materials for classrooms and facilities to development of learning materials, conduct of training/capacity building for teachers, and services for learners such as feeding programs and test reviews.

“I believe that the best education that one can get would be from a combination of public sector education and private sector education. We recognize the need for the private sector to participate, not only in terms of delivering educational services, but also in terms of contributing in whatever we need so we complement each other,” Briones said.

Usec. for Legislative Affairs, External Partnerships, and Project Management Service Tonisito Umali recognized the role of public-private sector partnerships towards the achievement of quality education in the country – something that the department’s Adopt-A-School Program has strived for.

“The support and commitment to such endeavor is paramount for it to succeed. This symbolic MOA signing is very important. This clearly manifests the commitment of DepEd to our partners. Our commitment to really help you facilitate what you may need to make your partnership activities trouble-free at ito po ay maipatupad sa isang napakahusay at napaka-episyenteng pamamaraan,” he said.

The MOA signing was held on April 22 at the DepEd central office in Pasig City and was attended by officials and representatives from the partner agencies/organizations.
