In Zambales, DepEd and partners intensify cyber safety measures

In Zambales, the Department of Education-Schools Division Office (Deped-SDO) has made a commitment to safeguarding students from all forms of violence, abuse, neglect, and maltreatment. This commitment extends to internet safety and security.

The Save the Children Foundation, Stairway Foundation, Action Inc., and Preda Foundation have pledged to intensify their efforts to promote the students’ physical, moral, spiritual, intellectual, and social well-being through the signing of a memorandum of agreement (MOA).

Romeo Alip, director of Zambales’ school division, stated on Tuesday that the MOA wants to increase the promotion of projects and programs on child protection law and cybersafety.

In a DepEd-Zambales news article that was broadcast on the organization’s official social media website, Alip stated, “We are grateful to our partners who took part in the extension of the child protection program.”

“We are really satisfied with our relationship, notably yung gusto naming dalhin (what we want to contribute) is our years of expertise working with the school sector in the areas of child protection,” said Ysrael Diloy, a child protection specialist with the Stairway Foundation.

To help duty bearers, instructors, and guidance counselors in SDO Zambales learn how to assist children who are the victims of abuse, Preda Foundation president Francisco Bermido Jr. said.

Bermido continued, “We are always willing to accept kids for residential care.”

Action Inc.’s project coordinator Michelle Tayao said they are collaborating with numerous organizations, people, and other stakeholders to develop a society that is kid-friendly.

The DepEd Regional Office (RO) III held its first regional hybrid training on cybersafety in schools in April, emphasizing the importance of understanding the various child protection issues faced by students in the online environment and educating school staff on the various cyber safe tools that can be used in curriculum instruction and delivery, as well as in identifying situations where they need to respond to cyber abuse and violence.

In a statement, May Eclar, the regional director of DepEd-3, said: “DepEd RO III expresses its iron-clad commitment to providing holistic development of Filipino learners in the region, and that all constitutional rights of every Filipino learner in the region shall be respected, promoted, and fulfilled in order for them to have productive and meaningful lives while participating in the noble nation-building project.”
