TPEF holds Strategic Planning

The TPEF formulated its five-year (2017 to 2021) Strategic Plan at the International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR) in Silang, Cavite on November 4 to 6, 2016. The strategic planning, with theme entitled “Sowing the Seeds of Learning,” presented the foundation’s accomplishment over the last four years, with breakthroughs and initiatives that brought positive results at the organization, programs, partner-rural schools and its scholars.

A vital event for the education foundation, the strategic planning workshops discussed institutional sustainability and fine-tuning and integration of its three programs, namely the scholarship grant program, scholars’ development program and other social development initiatives. Another equally important discussion was a review of TPEF’s vision and mission and formulation of new goals.

The participating scholars saw the need for the establishment and formation of TPEF scholars’ alumni association, which, based on initial talks, hopes to engage also in development efforts and other assistance to co-scholars. Based on their plan, its launching will be held during the General Assembly and Learning Summit of TPEF scholars on April 28 to May 1, 2017.

Mr. Alfonso L. Abugado, a Senior Education Program Specialist from the Department of Education, Region 4-A, discussed the K-12 Curriculum or Enhanced Basic Education Program, providing the participants a clearer understanding of its implementation and in the context of the foundation’s college scholarship grant program.
