In its effort to make education more relevant to the needs of local communities, the Department of Education (DepEd) has instituted a local planning process on the division level to produce what is called the Division Education Development Plan (DEDP). DepEd documents describe the DEDP as “the main vehicle through which the division can effectively and efficiently manage education services in the province or city.”
However, the task to address education problems on the local level should not be confined to local government and education officials and public educators alone. Recognizing the significant role of CSOs in their engagement in various education projects, DepEd, in collaboration with the Association of Foundations (AF), will, therefore, be holding a forum to discuss how CSOs could play an effective role in the effective implementation of the DEDP. This will be on August 18, from 10:00 to 11:30 am, at the MFI Foundation, Inc. located at MFI Building, Ortigas Avenue, Pasig City.
Interested participants are required to confirm their attendance due to limited available slots. For more information, please call Joey of the AF Secretariat at (02) 911-9792 or 913-7231.
