Pasabog ang Gabay Guro virtual Grand Gathering for Teachers na gaganapin ngayong October 2.

Kahit dumaan tayo sa gitna ng pandemya patuloy ang Gabay Guro sa pagbibigay pugay sa mga Filipino teachers dahil sa kanilang hard work at heroism sa paghubog ng mga kabataan. Ito’y sa pamamagitan ng PLDT Smart Foundation’s annual Gabay Guro Grand Gathering.

Ang tema ng virtual gathering ay “Guro sa Gitna ng Pandemya: Heroes for Digital Transformation”. Ito’y handog ng Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPCI) at PLDT Home. LIVE itong mapapanood ngayong Oct. 2, 2PM, Saturday via Gabay Guro’s Facebook page and Youtube Channel starting 2 p.m.

“Our teachers are the pillars of education. They pave the way for our children to have the best learning opportunities. It is through our Grand Gathering that we pay homage to the important role they play in transforming the lives of the next generation,” pahayag ng Gabay Guro Chairperson Chaye Cabal-Revilla who is also the Chief Finance Officer and Chief Sustainability Officer of the Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPIC).

“Last year, given the challenging constraints of the new normal, we’ve all had to fast-track our transition to digitalization. Our teachers and the whole education sector had to start moving towards a new way of doing things, just so our students would not get left behind. This year, we celebrate how our teachers were able to step up and how they underwent Digital Transformation themselves. We hail them as heroes for embracing and using technology to ensure that they are able to deliver quality education to all our learners despite the ongoing pandemic,” sambit pa niya.

Since 2007, Gabay Guro has been empowering teachers across the country through its seven (7) core pillars: Classroom Donations, Connectivity and Computerization, Scholarships; Teachers’ Trainings; Livelihood Projects; Digital Innovation; and the Teacher’s Tribute.

Gabay Guro has built and donated over 55 double classrooms in 18 cities and municipalities nationwide, and has provided 1,988 scholarship grants where 1,063 have graduated, of which 30% graduated with honors. It has also distributed more than 500 computers/ laptops among 16 municipalities nationwide.

Over the years, more than 60,000 teachers have trained face-to-face in 90 cities and provinces, and over 500,000 teachers have trained digitally thru Gabay Guro’s Teachers’ Training’s “Learning Never Stops” digital series. Last year, through Gabay Guro’s new Digital Innovation pillar, the Gabay Guro Super App was launched to empower teachers as they lead the way for the digital transformation. Within its first 2 days of launch, the Gabay Guro Super App had over 100,000 downloads, catapulting it as one of the Top 5 education apps during its introduction phase. Since then, it has stayed popular among users with a steady 4.9 app satisfaction rating.

Gabay Guro has also brought more smiles to the faces of educators through the Grand Gathering, an annual celebration of Teachers’ Month, honoring them thru song, dance and raffle prizes. The event was conducted virtually for the first time last year, and garnered more than a million online attendees. Gabay Guro also has a series of localized tribute programs for teachers, or regional and localized Teacherfest events, which have already honored more than 500,000 teachers face-to-face in Metro Manila and in 13 regional areas, including Ilocos Norte, Bulacan, Cebu, Butuan, Bataan, Navotas, Davao and others.

Gabay Guro’s efforts have also been recognized by various award-giving bodies in the Philippines and abroad, including the Gawad Tanglaw, Anvil Awards, Philippine Quill Awards, Philippine Association of National Advertisers (PANA) Awards, and the CMO Asia Awards in Singapore.
