For the first time after her six-year vice presidential term and the 2022 national elections, Atty. Leni Robredo, President and Chairperson of Angat Pinas, Inc., returned to the portals of Naga College Foundation, Inc. (NCF) as she graced the plenary session of the Bayan Ko, Titser Ko (BKTK) Training for Trainers yesterday, April 22, 2024, at the Seminar Hall of the Criminology Building.

According to Atty. Robredo, who spoke before the participants, BKTK, which was the flagship literacy and numeracy program of the Jesse M. Robredo Foundation (JMRF), became an integral part of Angat Buhay’s initiatives for literacy and numeracy interventions, especially in the most vulnerable areas of the country.

The Training for Trainers revolves around discussions on the literacy framework and the 15-day literacy kit program that the participants will relay to the volunteer teachers coming from their respective institutions who will be deployed to the identified basic education institutions and Bayanihan E-skwela Community Learning Hubs in the city.

Delighted and grateful for the strengthened partnerships with nine academic institutions and education agencies, Atty. Robredo said that the Angat Buhay has continued to serve its purpose as a “convergence point” for “communities needing help and organizations wanting to help,” and such partnerships have reaffirmed the fair share of commitment of the involved institutions in raising a child, ensuring that no child is left behind.

Sharing the same sentiments, Dr. Fernando M. Macaraig, Assistant Schools Division Superintendent of DepEd Naga, was thrilled with the “lots of partners and stakeholders collaborating with DepEd with the objective of raising the quality of education.”

Dr. Macaraig then thanked Angat Pinas, Inc., and its partners for “looking into the interests of the learners in literacy and numeracy,” which he considered a “doable, sustainable, and radical solution” and not a mere “band-aid solution” to the education crisis.

Meanwhile, in his message, Mr. Mario C. Villanueva, Naga College Foundation, Inc. (NCF) President, expressed his immense joy and appreciation to the Angat Pinas, Inc. for choosing NCF as a host of the two-day training, which he considered a means to “boost the morale of the teachers” and “extend the blessings of the institution in bridging the widening gaps in education.”

Along with the top executives and representatives of NCF, officials and faculty of instruction of the Department of Education—Naga (DepEd), Ateneo de Naga University (ADNU), Bicol State College of Applied Sciences and Technology (BISCAST), Central Bicol State University of Agriculture (CBSUA), Naga College Foundation, Inc. (NCF), Naga View Adventist College, STI College—Naga, University of Nueva Caceres (UNC), and Unibersidad de Sta. Isabel de Naga, Inc. (USI) also attended the training.
