MANNILA — In preparation for the next academic year, police personnel in Gregorio del Pilar, Ilocos Sur helped prepare the children through the “Brigada Pabasa” program.
The project was initiated by police personnel from Gregorio del Pilar Municipal Police Station, in coordination with officials from the Alfonso Elementary School.
It aims to assist communities in preparing the children for the next school year, teaching them the importance of education. In this program, cops help in improving the child’s literacy.
Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police General Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar said the project only shows the police’s willingness to help children in attaining good education.
“Hindi man mga guro, nariyan ang ating kapulisan para tumulong sa mga kabataan na palawakin pa ang kanilang kaalaman at bigyan ng importansya ang edukasyon,” PGen Eleazar said.
“Sa ganitong programa, mapaparamdam din sa mga kabataan na kakampi nila ang pulis at hindi kami dapat katakutan,” he added. (ai/mtvn)
