Country program executives of the World Bank (WB) and the Australian Aid (AusAid) lauded the Department of Education (DepEd)-Aklan for the smooth implementation of their programs in Aklan.
DepEd Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Victorina Laroza said that WB Consultant Nelson Ireland recently led the team together with the AusAid and DepEd Central Office officials in visiting the different public schools. The AusAid was represented by their Public Financial Management Advisor Des Ferguson.
"The team visited Caeamcan Elementary School in the hinterland barangay of Libacao and Jose Borromeo Legaspi National High School in Balete town to personally see how we implemented their project. They were impressed," Laroza said. Both the WB and the AusAid have implemented the SPHERE (Support for Philippine Basic Education Reforms) and the NPSBE (National Program Support for Basic Education) in Aklan.
Their visit aims to find out the real situation in the community pertaining to how the programs and funds are being used in Aklan. (PNA) /MP
