Employees of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program volunteered their services to the Brigada Eskwela 2016 program of the Department of Education (DepEd) in Northern Mindanao.
Brigada Eskwela is an initiative of DepEd which focuses on ensuring that schools in different communities are prepared for the upcoming opening of classes.
With the theme: “Tayo Para sa Paaralang Ligtas, Maayos, at Handa Mula Kindergarten Hanggang Senior High School”, the volunteers went to the different schools in the area to help clean classrooms and the school grounds; repair chairs, ceilings, and tables; and, paint classrooms, among others.
The volunteers committed to actively participate in the week-long initiative every year to prepare a safe, clean, and healthy learning environment for the incoming students. # Source – www.dswd.gov.ph
