Gabay Guro pays homage to Philippine teachers through the Grand Gathering and launch of a new app


Gabay Guro, PLDT-Smart Foundation’s flagship advocacy program for teachers, recently celebrated its 12th anniversary with a prize-filled and all-star Grand Gathering, along with the launch of the Gabay Guro app on September 22 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.


PLDT-Smart Foundation President Esther Santos, Alexandria and the Centers of Wisdom Corp. (Philippine Distributor of XSEED Education) Chairman John B. Echauz, Maricel Bustillo of Las Pinas National Senior High School, CAA Campus, winner of brand-new house and lot and Gabay Guro Chairperson, PLDT SVP & Smart CFO Chaye Cabal-Revilla



This year’s event, Gabay Guro gathered over 20,000 teachers from all over the country to experience a historical Teachers’ Tribute, which was headlined by the country’s biggest stars such as Aegis, Angeline Quinto, Christian Bautista, Eat Bulaga’s Jose and Wally, BakClash and Broadway Boys, Erik Santos, Ian Veneracion, Jaya, Jay-R, Jayson Dy, Jed Madela, Jona, K Brosas, Klarisse De Guzman, Kyla, Kuh Ledesma, Martin Nievera, Moira dela Torre, Ogie Alcasid, Piolo Pascual, Pops Fernandez, Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Zephanie Dimaranan, and Gabby Concepcion and Sharon Cuneta, who were reunited by a performance on-stage after a very long time. In support for the Gabay Guro, talent managements Cornerstone Entertainment Inc. and Eat Bulaga enlisted their celebrity talents to perform for the Grand Gathering as volunteers.

In addition to all the artists that entertained the teachers during the event, Department of Education secretary Leonor Briones also graced the evening with her presence.

Many prizes were given away to the attendees, but two lucky teachers won the event’s grand prizes—Mary Jean Libot of Mother Divine Providence School won a brand new Foton Gratour van, while Maricel Bustillo of Las Pinas City National Senior High School – CAA Campus won a new house and lot.

The launch of the Innovations pillar

The highlight of this year’s celebration was the launch of Gabay Guro’s seventh pillar: Digital Innovations, which highlights the newly-launched Gabay Guro app. The Digital Innovations Pillar takes its place among the original six core pillars established in 2007: classroom donation, scholarships, teachers’ training, livelihood programs, Connectivity and Computerization, and the Teachers’ Tribute.



The new Digital Innovations Pillar of Gabay Guro aims to reinforce the digital transformation for Filipino teachers, school leaders, and stakeholders by equipping them with new modes of teaching and the latest technology that will enable them to create, grow, and evolve their craft for the benefit of their students.

Backed by this new learning pillar, Gabay Guro introduces an application for teachers that will provide e-learning content and interactive technology and ready-to-use online tools that are aligned with the DepEd and CHED curriculum. This will provide teachers with the latest and easily accessible educational resources right at their fingertips. The new Gabay Guro app will be launched before the end of the year.


“Gabay Guro continues to develop innovative programs for our teachers and our partners in nation-building,” Gabay Guro Chairperson Chaye Cabal-Revilla said. “Every year, it is our great honor to be able to give back to our teachers through a grand tribute and we always look forward to continuing this mission and empower them through Gabay Guro’s previously six and now seven core pillars of learning.”  

This coming October 24, Gabay Guro is bringing the program closer to the teachers in the Northern part of the country. A regional Teachers’ Tribute will be staged in Ilocos Norte, to bring quality entertainment and to give away a lot of prizes to the Ilocano teachers who did not make it to the Grand Gathering. It is one of Gabay Guro’s ways to show its sincerity in giving back and being inclusive to all the teachers all over the Philippines.
