CEBU, Philippines —  At least 13 public schools in the cities of Mandaue, Cebu and Lapu-Lapu as well as the town of Cordova are the latest recipients of the “Bond Paper Ko, Module Mo” Project of the Department of Labor and Employment.

DOLE-7 regional director Salome Siaton thanks several donors for helping the agency continue this advocacy of helping the children pursue their schooling by way of providing them resources for their modules.

The project benefitted Gabi Elementary School, Day-as Elementary School, Ibabao Elementary School and Cordova National High School, all in Cordova town.

In Lapu-Lapu City, the beneficiaries are Pusok National High School, Babag National High School and Maribago High School.

In Mandaue City, the beneficiaries are Mandaue Comprehensive National High School, Paknaan National High School and Tipolo National High School.

In Cebu City, the beneficiaries are Don Sergio Osmeña Sr. Memorial National High School, Tejero National High School and Kamputhaw Elementary School.

DOLE-7 said that these second batch of selected schools received reams of bond paper and printers in a recent turnover ceremony witnessed by the different members of the Regional Council Against Child Labor (RCACL) and representatives of the Department of Education’s Divisions of Cebu City, Mandaue City, Cordova District-Cebu Province, and Lapulapu City.

The project wherein the agency works closely with RCACL aims to extend assistance to some selected public schools in need of materials and resources to facilitate learning of the students.

World Vision, one of the active RCACL members, donated the reams of bond paper and printers in support of the project.

The project was first introduced and one of the highlights of the DOLE’s 87th Founding Anniversary celebration in December 8, 2020 wherein Umapad Elementary School and Maguikay National High School in Mandaue City and Tejero Night High School in Cebu City were the first batch of beneficiaries.

Siaton, who also sits as the RCACL chairperson, gave the donors and RCACL partners a certificate of appreciation as the agency’s gesture of sincere gratitude to everyone, who understood the objectives of the project and the positive impact it could yield toward the fight against child labor.

Recognized during the ceremony were the Philippine National Police, Commission on Human Rights, Department of Interior and Local Government, Feed the Children, Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, Inc. and World Vision. — GMR (FREEMAN)
