KCFI Leads LCF CommEd Project for Talaga ES in Rizal

With the aim of uniting the private sector in supporting Philippine basic education, Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI) took the lead in the Committee on Education of the League of Corporate Foundations (LCF CommEd) to assist Talaga Elementary School in Morong, Rizal.

The project was launched last October 20 at the school grounds of Talaga ES and was welcomed by the teachers and the school’s drum and lyre band. Schools Division Superintendent of Rizal Dr. Maritez Ibañez also extended her thanks during the event. “Talagang maswerte ang Talaga na napili tayo na tulungan ng League of Corporate Foundations,”she said.
 

 A Unified Effort for Talaga ES

With a population of 454 learners (based on 2016 school data) and 10 teachers, Talaga ES has been facing several challenges in the past years. Aside from its remote location, most of its students have been coming from relocation communities. Enrolment has been increasing in the past years pushing the school to expand its infrastructure and services. Currently, the school has a total of 9 classrooms: five are reported to be in good condition, while four are in need of repair.

Other concerns include student dropouts of more than 100 children aged 5 to 17 years old and low National Achievement Test (NAT) results.
