The Davao City government has warned the public against fixers and those selling application forms for educational assistance.
This as the local government said that 20,686 slots are still open for Eskwela Davao, an educational assistance program offered for children whose families lost their sources of income and jobs due to lockdown and movement restrictions to slow the spread of the coronavirus disease in the city.
“Be aware of the right information, at the same time, the right documents to be submitted. Huwag po maniwala sa mga fixers. Hindi po binebenta ang mga forms. Libre po ang lahat ang mga serbisyo ng gobyerno sa Eskwela Davao and Work for Davao,” said Norman Baloro, program head of Eskwela Davao.
Out of the 22,000 target beneficiaries, 2,962 slots are still open for kindergarten pupils who will get P1,000 each; 9,493 slots for elementary pupils at P2,000 each; 4,039 slots for high school pupils at P3,000 each; and, 4,192 slots for senior high students at P3,000 each.
