Education School on Wheels Program by UNTV Offered to Out-of-School Filipinos

UNTV Life is excited to unveil the latest benefit of Dunong-Gulong, an Education School on Wheels Program. It's specifically designed to meet the needs of Out-of-school young and adult Filipinos in Philippine provinces.

With UNTV’s aim to support the local government’s education program, UNTV have implemented an element to its Mobile School Bus, an Alternative Learning System. This provides free education to young and adult learners, indigenous people and those with physical disabilities in the remotest areas of Philippine provinces. “Dunong-Gulong” project, a P13-million mobile school project was introduced on 2010 as UNTV’s gift to the out-of-school Filipinos during its 27th year anniversary of public service.


Completion of the alternative learning program will allow learners to eventually get formal education for free. UNTV has been able to do this by giving learners similar benefit as the acceleration program by the DepEd (Department of Education).


On this subject, UNTV-BMPI Chairman and CEO Daniel Razon, said: “Our goal is to reach remote locations where educational systems are insufficient, and school accessibility is a problem.”


Costing P6.5 million, the mobile school bus is built with audio-video amenities (plasma TV, projector, instructional CDs), a library, tables and chairs, a toilet, and a sleeping quarter for the teachers. In cases of non-availability of power supply, the wheeled classroom is readied with generator and solar panels from the Department of Energy..


Having been in public service now for 5 years, UNTV Life strives to provide formal education and change the lives of as many out-of-school Filipinos as possible. This passion has made them known as a company dedicated to public service. More information can be found here http://www.untvweb.com
