A total of 27,662 Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries from Ilocos Region supported the cleaning, repainting, repairing, and other beautification activities for this year’s Brigada Eskwela with the theme “Tayo para sa Kalikasan, Kaligtasan, at Kahandaan ng ating mga Paaralan” in preparation for the incoming school year.  

All the thousand beneficiaries simultaneously worked hand in hand during the Brigada Eskwela 2015 in 531 public school facilities (85-Ilocos Norte, 76-Ilocos Sur, 36-La Union, and 334-Pangasinan) in the region.

Through their Brigada Eskwela 2015 participation, Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries show active citizenship by volunteering themselves to be involved and oriented in all community activities.

Brigada Eskwela is an annual nationwide voluntary effort that brings in teachers, community helpers, parents, government agencies, local businesses, and private sectors to clean up and to repair infrastructures and materials of all public elementary and high schools in the country.
