Star-studded Gabay Guro teacherfest goes to Navotas

After witnessing the continuous positive impact of PLDT Gabay Guro’s programs and what it does to the betterment of the plight of the Filipino teacher, PLDT Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan last year expressed his desire to expand the reach of Gabay Guro by bringing it to the different provinces in the country.

In no time, Gabay Guro Foundation’s kind-hearted Chairman Chaye Cabal-Revilla has mobilized the team of dedicated volunteers and the wheels of Gabay Guro’s pillars have since been grinding non-stop. This year alone, Gabay Guro has been to the provinces of Agusan, Bulacan and Bataan conducting trainings and workshops, and bringing the much-awaited teacherfestright to their doorsteps.

And to cap a very fruitful 2018, Chairman Revilla led her team last Thursday (Dec. 6) to hold Gabay Guro’s teacherfest in Navotas to spread early holiday cheers to the teachers there.

“We partnered with the LGU for this event. We want Navotas to experience this firsthand because we know that it is in these events where teachers get to experience the tribute they deserve,” says Revilla.

The star-studded event was held at the Navotas Sports Complex where an estimated 4,000 teachers gathered for a day full of fun, prizes, and world-class entertainment led by the country’s biggest performers—Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Martin Nievera, Gabby Concepcion, Jona, Julie Anne San Jose, Renz Verano, Jason Dy, and Randy Santiago, along with comedians Ate Gay and Regina

Revilla and the Gabay Guro team of visionaries advocate that, “our nation’s children depend on our nation’s teachers to lead them to the future.” Gabay Guro is propelled by these Pillars of Learnings—Scholarships (2,000 scholars in 52 state colleges and universities nationwide; 500 LET passers, and 800 graduates, 234 are honor graduates); Livelihood Programs; Housing and Educational Facilities (49 classrooms constructed and donated in Cebu, Bohol, Leyte and Capiz); Broadband and Computerization (47 partner schools received computer donations and broadband connection); Teachers Training (trained over 40,000 teachers in over eight training programs); Teachers’ Tribute, and the latest addition, Innovation

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

Soon, Innovation Pillar will be trumpeted by the launch of the Gabay Guro app where teachers, parents and students can benefit tremendously. The interactive app can help the teacher access lesson plans, educational materials, upload grades, etc. which will also be accessible to the parent and the student. 

Gabay Guro is now running on its 11th year, carrying with it a history littered with awards and citations. Among these are the Gawad Tanglaw award, Anvil Awards and from the Phil. Association of National Advertisers (PANA) and the Philippine Quill Awards.

Revilla and her team of dedicated volunteers work behind the scenes tirelessly and for free each time.

Manny V. Pangilinan says, “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 so much more blessed. The gratitude they show is priceless. It makes everything worth it,” she said.
