DepEd and G-Watch Unites for Textbook Walk for Mindanao

Written By David D'Angelo on Friday, June 5, 2009 | 6/05/2009

Brtherhood of Destiny (BROOD) had long hailed the dedication done for the service of the youth and school children by the Government Watch or G-Watch. They had been part of Textbook Count which was also by DepEd and G-Watch. The latest noteworthy activity and deed by the Philippine Department of Education and G-watch is the delivery of new textbooks to Barangay Salansang in Sultan Kudarat. Parents and teachers welcomed the arrival of the new books with a colorful parade featuring music and dancing that fused elements from their Tiruray and Manobo heritage with modern influences.

Textbook Walk was a supplementary component of Textbook Count developed and pilot-tested by G-Watch in 2006 and adopted by DepEd officially in 2007. The program mobilizes the community to assist the DepEd in bringing the textbooks from DepEd district offices to far-flung elementary schools.
