    VP Leni Joins DepEd’s Brigada Eskwela

    16 May 2017

    Over 30 volunteers from the Office of the Vice President (OVP) led by Vice President Leni Robredo joins the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Brigada Eskwela initiative Tuesday morning.

    Together with some 250-500 faculty, parents, and barangay members of the Balara Elementary school in Quezon City, volunteers cleaned and repainted classrooms in preparation for school year 2017.

    OVP and DepEd’s partnership under Brigada Eskwela kicked off yesterday, after Angat Buhay partners Negrense Volunteers for Change and the local government unit of San Fernando, Masbate turned over bags and school supplies to Buenavista Integrated School in the province.

    As part of their partnership with DepEd for Brigada Eskwela, the OVP will also be sending volunteers to schools in the following provinces: Bulacan, Laguna, Cavite, Palawan, Camarines Sur, Zamboanga del Norte, and Zamboanga del Sur.

    Other than volunteers, OVP partners will also aid in the form of cleaning materials, school supplies, school uniforms, and teacher training.

    Brigada Eskwela 2017 encourages collaboration among teachers, parents, and other community members, as well as public and private partners of DepEd to take part in supporting Filipino children in education.

    OVP is committed to partnerships that prioritize reaching out to the poorest communities, with the hopes of making lives better for those living in the margins.
