The Provincial Government of Zamboanga del Sur, through the leadership of Governor Antonio H. Cerilles, in partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd), and OneHope Philippines gave books to different schools in Zamboanga del Sur.
In the modern world where everything can be learned through technology, there are still those who have difficulty reading. If a child learns how to read, then he can read to learn more things. But what will happen to a child full of potential but doesn’t know how to read?
That is why the Province of Zamboanga del Sur is lucky to have a leader like Governor Antonio H. Cerilles who recognizes the importance of education and is concerned about the well-being of the children in his province. He implemented the Seven (7) Point Agenda, which aims to provide for the needs of the constituents of Zamboanga del Sur.
The governor started the Reading Comprehension Program, and partnered with the Department of Education (DepED), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), and JCI Senate Philippines, Inc.-Zamboanga del Sur chapter. This is to address the reading capacity problem of the pupils in elementary level.
Early last year, the Province partnered with OneHope Philippines, a non government organization, in giving books and other reading materials which complements to the Reading Comprehension Program of the province.
Thus, the provincial government, through the initiative of Governor Antonio H. Cerilles, DepEd and the office 2nd Dist. Rep. Hon. Aurora Enerio-Cerilles, simultaneously conducted Book Giving Ceremony as part of the Reading Comprehension Program and in line with the 7 point agenda of the governor.
“We are giving books to your sons and daughters to help them be proficient in reading, and for them to become professionals,” according to Governor Antonio H. Cerilles.
“I could say that our province is one of the provinces in the Philippines that has a lot of professionals because for us Education is always number 1,” said Congw. Aurora Enerio-Cerilles.
