The 3rd Year implementation of the Respect Education Program (REP) has been met with excitement and happiness as Pasali Philippines simultaneously launched the program in July 2015 in 33 schools: nine (9) elementary schools and three (3) secondary schools in General Santos City; four (4) elementary schools in Sarangani Province; and seventeen (17) schools in Palimbang, Sultan Kudarat.
The activity was participated by teachers headed by their principal, some of the Barangay Local Government Unit (BLGU), parents, students of REP beneficiaries from grades 4 to 10 and Pasali staffs who work together to make the program more meaningful and really a tool in building peace between and among the IPs, Moro and Christians.
Warm accommodation and support for Pasali Respect Education Program were expressed by the schools administration and the children were observed to behave in a way they should despite the heat of the sun. The launching started with the introduction of Respect Education program and Pasali staffs were also given the opportunity to introduce themselves.
The mode of implementation this year will be a one-day Respect workshop in which all five (5) respect modules will be distributed into series of monthly workshops: “Getting to Know” for the month of July, “I am..” in August, “Welcome to my world” in September, “We are Mindanao” in December and for the month of January will be the “Show Respect” workshop. The first respect workshop focused on the expression of respect, peace, love and unity by creating an open and friendly learning environment.
The program gained acknowledgement and appreciation from the teachers and saying that Respect Education complements with the peace education of the Department of Education.
