Bond paper Ko, Module Mo

THIRTEEN (13) public schools became the latest recipients of the “Bond paper Ko, Module Mo,” Project of the Department of Labor and Employment.

The second batch of selected schools received reams of bond paper and printers in a turnover ceremony held last week, witnessed by the different members of the Regional Council Against Child Labor (RCACL) and representatives of the Department of Education’s Divisions of Cebu City, Mandaue City, Cordova District-Cebu Province, and Lapulapu City.

Recipients of the project were: Gabi Elementary School; Day-as Elementary School; Ibabao Elementary School; Ibabao Elementary School; Cordova National High School; Pusok National High School; Babag National High School; Maribago High School, Don Sergio Osmena Sr. Memorial National High School; Tejero National High School; Kamputhaw Elementary School; Mandaue Comprehensive Hational High School; Paknaan National High School; and Tipolo National High School.

DOLE-7 Assistant Regional Director Lilia A. Estillore represented Regional Director Salome O. Siaton to the event. World Vision, one of the active RCACL members, donated the reams of bond paper and printers in support to the project which was first introduced by the DOLE on December 2020.

“We are so happy that this project received a very positive response from our partners. We have the World Vision to thank for. Thank you for helping us continue this advocacy of helping the children pursue their schooling by way of providing them resources for their modules,” said Siaton, who also sits as the RCACL Chairperson.

Donors and RCACL partners received certificates of appreciation from the DOLE. This project could yield a positive impact toward the fight against child labor.

To recall, the DOLE rolled out the “Bond paper Ko, Module Mo,” Project in December last year benefiting two public schools in Mandaue City and another one in Cebu City, which all received reams of bond paper and hygiene and sanitation kits
