Gabay Guro gathers biggest stars to honor Filipino teacher’s pride, purpose and passion

Despite the continuing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gabay Guro remained steadfast in its avowed commitment to uphold the Filipino teachers and their noble mission of empowering the mind of the youth as it held another tribute event for the modern-day heroes of our time via PLDT-Smart Foundation’s annual Gabay Guro Grand Gathering last Oct. 15, 2022 at 1 p.m.

Held virtually for the third time since the pandemic hit in 2020, this year’s teachers’ star-studded tribute went by the theme “The Filipino Teacher: Our Pride, Our Purpose, Our Passion” and was streamed LIVE via Gabay Guro’s Facebook page and Youtube Channel.

Just like the first two events which were presented by the Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPIC), with PLDT Home and PLDT-Smart Foundation and powered on the digital landscape, Gabay Guro 2022 was expected to reach out to an even larger audience of teachers across the country and abroad as it showcased a barrage of world-class talents that include Gabay Guro’s long-time assembly of celebrity advocates including the megastar Sharon Cuneta, the songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, concert king Martin Nievera, balladeer Basil Valdez, and pop diva Ms. Kuh Ledesma. Musical director Louie Ocampo also rendered his genius to the event with production numbers.

The 2022 Grand Gathering was hosted by Pops Fernandez, Sam Concepcion, Dominic Roque, and Jolina Magdangal. There were also several other musical artists who volunteered to perform.

The event was expected to draw in over 500,000 teachers, who all had the chance to win exciting prizes including a Chery Tiggo Pro car and two Php 500,000 cash prizes.

And because Gabay Guro care deeply for the teachers’ health and welfare, the Philippines’ first fully integrated health app with robust telemedicine service mWell.ph gave away mWellness gift boxes which entitled them to free doctor check-up, their very own oximeter, thermal scanner and vouchers for vitamins to make them strong and healthy.

Gabay Guro has built and donated over 55 double classrooms in 21 cities and municipalities nationwide.

It has provided 2,174 scholarship grants where 1,767 have graduated, of which 24% graduated with honors. There are also 840 passers of the Licensure Exams for Teachers from them. Gabay Guro has 57 partner state universities so far.

It has also distributed more than 600 computers/ laptops and printers and internet connectivity to 49 partner-schools from 21 municipalities benefiting 38,587 students, teaching and admin staff. There are also more than 5,000 teachers who were given extra livelihood opportunities and access to micro-financing through Gabay Guro’s assistance.

Over the years, more than 50,000 teachers have trained face-to-face in 90 cities and provinces, and over 1,000,000 teachers have trained digitally thru Gabay Guro’s Teachers’ Training’s “Learning Never Stops” digital series. In the last quarter of 2020, through Gabay Guro's new Digital Innovation pillar, the Gabay Guro Super App was launched to empower teachers as they lead the way for digital transformation in education.

Gabay Guro also has a series of localized tribute programs for teachers, thru regional Teacherfest events, which have already honored more than 500,000 teachers face-to-face in Metro Manila and in 13 regional areas, including Ilocos Norte, Bulacan, Cebu, Butuan, Bataan, Navotas, Davao and others.
