Pilipino sa Isip, sa Salita at sa Gawa
The 5 Cs Approach: Molding Responsible and Engaged Citizens through Education Programs
As a country, we have proven time and again that positive change can take place when we Filipinos unite and put our acts. Daunting as it may seem, nation-building becomes doable if everyone will do his/her share.
It all starts with being responsible and engaged Filipino citizens.
Being a Pilipino sa isip, sa salita at sa gawa calls on us to embrace and integrate the core values that define our identity as a people in everything that we do. Some of these values as enshrined in our Constitution are as follows: Faith in the Almighty, Patriotism, Respect for Life, Respect for Law and Government, Justice, Freedom, Love, Equality, Peace, Promotion of the Common Good and Concern for the Environment together.
While our Education Programs have the power to improve knowledge and skills, they ca also empower the youth to become agents of change for a better society.
