KCFI celebrated 24 years of reaching and teaching more through the power of educational media and teacher training programs in JuneOn June 14, the Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI) celebrated its 24th anniversary, continuing its commitment to reach and teach more through bringing Knowledge Channel educational content and training programs to more schools and communities nationwide.
Since 1999, KCFI has been at the forefront of helping improve education and learning outcomes in the country. From the Philippines’ northernmost town in Itbayat, Batanes, all the way to the very south in Sitangkai, Tawi-Tawi, the foundation has been actively engaging child development centers (CDCs), public schools and the Alternative Learning System community learning centers (CLCs) to give them access to a variety of multimedia resources.
Working closely with the Early Childhood Care and Development Council, the Department of Social Welfare and Development and the Department of Education, KCFI has always aligned its media- and technology-based learning experiences with the established early learning and K-12 curricula, as well as ensured its effectiveness in helping to teach the prescribed competencies to learners of all ages.
As part of its 24th anniversary and the much grander 25th anniversary celebration in 2024, KCFI will be launching different activities to share the joy of learning to more learners, educators and families in the Philippines.
Among these activities are “25 for 25,” a donation drive where 25 CDCs, schools and/or CLCs will receive one Knowledge Channel Portable Media Library (KC PML) each; and “Search for Teachers of Knowledge,” a nationwide search for educators who have demonstrated the best practices in using Knowledge Channel in the classroom. Other endeavors, such as a fundraiser walk, a webinar series and a book, are currently in the works, too.
In the last three years alone, KCFI created nearly 200 video lessons, trained more than 12,000 educators and donated 1,700 KC PMLs and Knowledge TVs to beneficiary CDCs, schools and CLCs across the country through the help of its many public and private partners.
