Gabay Guro, a project of PLDT-Smart Foundation (PSF) and the PLDT Managers Club Inc. (MCI) that aims to support and honor teachers through scholarship grants, training, livelihood, housing, among other programs, is now on its 11th year.

Its success goaded PLDT chair Manny V. Pangilinan to suggest bringing it to more provinces in the country.

Gabay Guro Foundation chair Chaye Cabal-Revilla proceeded to mobilize her team of volunteers to Agusan, Bulacan and Bataan to conduct trainings and workshops.

To cap a fruitful 2018, Revilla announced that on Dec. 6 Gabay Guro’s teacher festival would go to Navotas to spread early holiday cheers to the teachers.

The event will be held at the Navotas Sports Complex.

An estimated 4,000 teachers are expected to gather for a day of fun, prizes and a special show featuring Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Gabby Concepcion, Jona, Julie Anne San Jose, Renz Verano, Jason Dy, Randy Santiago and comedians Ate Gay and Regina.

Gabay Guro has so far granted scholarships (2,000 scholars in 52 state colleges and universities nationwide; 500 LET passers, and 800 graduates, 234 of whom are honor graduates); conducted livelihood programs; donated housing and educational facilities (49 classrooms constructed and donated in Cebu, Bohol, Leyte and Capiz); enabled broadband and computerization (47 partner schools received computer donations and broadband connection); conducted teachers’ training (more than 40,000 teachers in over eight training programs); organized a teachers’ tribute, and the latest addition, innovation.

Introduced last September at the MOA Arena grand gathering, the innovation pillar will equip teachers, school leaders, school staff and other stakeholders with an empowering innovation mindset meant to connect schools, industry and communities.

Pangilinan said: “We believe in what Gabay Guro stands for. We give our all to make our teachers feel special, but at the end of the day, we are the ones who feel more blessed.”
