DOLE NorMin FWP committees donate bond papers for “new normal” modules

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY - 7 December 2020. Highlighting the Department of Labor

and Employment's (DOLE) 87th anniversary celebration, and in light of the Department

of Education-X's (DepEd-X) call for continuous delivery of quality education to learners

amidst the pandemic, the Northern Mindanao Federation of Family Welfare Committees

(NMFFWC) of the DOLE-X donated today, 775 reams of A4 bond paper to DepEd-10.


Aside from corporate social responsibility, NMFFWC Chairperson Urchielyn C. Basalio

initiated the generous deed as part of Family Welfare Program's (FWP) 10 dimensions

under Education.


In her short message, Basalio disclosed that NMFFWC's aim is to provide assistance to

the regional federation’s pre-identified public school beneficiaries with the materials

needed in reproducing the students’ Self-Learning Modules as they have shifted

distance learning.


The donations were coursed through the DepEd-X's Brigada Eskwela program, an

annual nationwide initiative originally intended to maintain and refurbish school facilities

but now repurposed to strengthen the schools’ capacity to provide students with self-

learning modules.


During a simple turnover ceremony held at DOLE-X, DepEd-10 Regional Director Dr.

Arturo B. Bayocot expressed gratitude to DOLE-X OIC Regional Director Albert E. Gutib

for his unparalleled initiative to ensure continuous education in NorMin. 


“I believe that the students represent the future of our nation,” says Bayocot. “This is the

best example for Filipino spirit of bayanihan, DOLE-X and NMFFWC's initiatives are

worth emulating. Thank you for having the heart to help our children". He added.


Meanwhile, Gutib in an interview emphasized that the donation is DOLE-X’s way of

celebrating Christmas with the children through the kindness of the 250 member


companies of the regional federation. “We will continue supporting the government

through our advocacy, especially at this trying time.” He said.


For 87 years, DOLE remained committed to shape the future of the youth by being

NMFFWC's partner in nation-building and addressing the present challenges for a

brighter tomorrow.
