We work with donors and partners to provide schools with disaster-resilient, PWD-inclusive and gender-sensitive classrooms.
The Classroom Construction Support Program is an ongoing partnership with the Australian Government, through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). It aims to assist the Department of Education (DepEd) in increasing students’ access to education and in improving the quality of the learning environment in assisted sites.
The partnership contributed to increase the absorptive capacity of the schools to accommodate more enrollees while reducing the classroom size. About 302 of the 495 classrooms were built in disaster-prone areas, replacing the damaged structures, and have been designated as temporary evacuation centers.
