For 12 years, Gabay Guro has been empowering teachers across the country through its seven key pillars: housing and educational facilities; scholarships; trainings; livelihood programs; broadbanding and computerization; annual Teacher’s Tribute; and the newly launched innovations pillar. 

To enable teachers to create, grow, and evolve their craft for the benefit of their students, Gabay Guro’s innovations pillar will support the digital transformation for Filipino teachers, school leaders, and stakeholders by equipping them with new modes of teaching and the latest technology.

With its goal of reinforcing the digital transformation in the field of education, Gabay Guro introduces exclusive programs that are designed to hone and improve the welfare of teachers nationwide. There will be e-learning content and interactive technology and ready-to-use online tools that are aligned with the DepEd and CHED curriculum that will all be helpful in terms of getting the easiest access to educational resources. The new Gabay Guro app will be launched at the Gabay Guro Grand Gathering event at the Mall of Asia Arena on September 22. 

Since its founding in 2007, Gabay Guro has built and donated 47 classrooms nationwide and provided over 1,770 scholarship grants through its 57 partner schools, which have been equipped with new computers and broadband connectivity. Of its scholars, 1,013 have graduated, with 343 finishing with honors. About 680 graduates have also passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers.  

Over the years, Gabay Guro has helped more than 60,000 educators through its regular training programs such as: Teacher’s Treasure Chest; English Proficiency Program; Personality Development; Emotional Intelligence; Teachers’ Armor; Leadership Training; IT Sustainability and Literacy; Teaching in the Digital Age; and Unleashing Creativity in Teaching. The advocacy program also helps in securing opportunities for teachers, school leaders and staff by linking schools to communities and industries through workshops and seminars.

Committed to helping teachers uplift their capabilities, develop passion and improve competency, Gabay Guro also offers a variety of training programs–and one of which is the Teachers’ Tribute held in different provinces in the Philippines. Through the “Teacherfest,” which is the Gabay Guro’s satellite and localized tribute, more teachers from remote areas are able to share in the fun and frivolity. Gabay Guro has successfully mounted the Teacherfests in the provinces including Metro Cauayan Isabela, Santa Rosa Laguna, Bataan, Butuan, Bulacan, Navotas, and Davao. 

Gabay Guro’s efforts have also been recognized by various award-giving bodies in the Philippines and abroad including Gawad Tanglaw, Anvil Awards, Philippine Quill Awards, Philippine Association of National Advertisers (PANA) Awards, and the CMO Asia Awards in Singapore.
