Gabay Guro: Building The Nation One Teacher At A Time



I am a proud daughter of an elementary public school teacher. I have witnessed my mom's dedication in her profession for two decades. She never expected recognition. She knows that teaching is not about what she receives. I have met some of her students who are already successful in their chosen fields. They visit the school years after to thank my mom. 

I was at the media launch of PLDT Smart Foundation Gabay Guro last September 13, 2016 and I was so thankful to the PLDT executives who started this advocacy for teachers nine years ago. What transpired after that fateful day revolutionized education-based advocacy efforts in so many levels giving birth to a holistic approach that was anchored on the now famous Gabay Guro pillars - Scholarships, Trainings, Housing and Educational Facilities, Livelihood Programs, Broadbanding and Computerization, and Teachers’ Tribute.

PLDT Gabay Guro executive volunteers Gary Dujali and Chaye Cabal-Revilla
talk about the upcoming activities which will help build the nation one teacher at a time.
The pinnacle of Gabay Guro’s celebration is embodied in the tribute event held every year at the MOA Arena. Year after year, the organizers leave no stone unturned ensuring that it is in Gabay Guro where teachers get to be treated like royalty. Generosity at its finest, raffle prizes have grown to be the staggering house and lot and vehicle showcases and livelihood opportunities that they are today in every Gabay Guro tribute event.

The Gabay Guro’s 9th Teacher’s Tribute this year, the biggest gathering of the country’s celebrities, will not disappoint on Sept. 25 at the MOA Arena. Stellar names set to give the teachers the time of their lives on this day are Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Gary Valenciano, Pops Fernandez, James Reid, Nadine Lustre, Jona Viray, Michael Pangilinan, Ms. Lea Salonga and Mega star Ms. Sharon Cuneta and more surprise guests on the big day.

Singer Jonalyn Viray gives a preview of the world-class performances to expect
in the grand gathering with her smashing rendition of “Hero”.
This is the day where our teachers get to let their hair loose, meet the biggest celebrities, be treated to a whole day of entertainment and huge raffle prizes beginning with house and lot and vehicles., anything to remind them of their invaluable presence in our lives.

This year’s event is made possible through the help of the ff. sponsors: Perry’s Group of Companies (for the house and lot), Foton for the (Gratour Van), Intel, Devant, Motorlandia (for the Honda and Suzuki motorcyles), Ropali, Penshoppe, National Bookstore, Enchanted Kingdom, Splash, Tempra, Flanax, Bonamine, Vivalyte, Mundipharma, Gardenia, Bic, Art Attack, Microsoft, Smart Bro, Ultera, Talk N Text and 51 Talk.
