Gulayan sa Paaralan Program

The Department of Education (DEpEd) is set to implement the “Gulayan sa Paaralan” (Vegetable Gardens in School), which aims to teach elementary and high school students to be self-sufficient and also to alleviate hunger.

The project, which is also tied up with the “Programang Agrikultura Para Sa Masa” (Agricultural Program for the Masses) of the Department of Agriculture, likewise intends to foster public awareness in the health, nutritional and economic benefits of planting vegetable gardens in schools and homes.

School administrators and local government unit leaders will take charge of the project and will also manage other DepEd-related hunger and poverty mitigation programs.

Education Secretary Jesli Lapus said in a statement that 19 percent, or 3,268,000 families, nationwide are experiencing hunger and malnutrition, forcing schoolchildren from underprivileged sectors to drop out.

“The health and nutrition of our children is a crucial factor affecting their academic performance. By making food more accessible to a larger number of families, we can better ensure the success of our students,” Lapus said.
