KCFI celebrates 24 years of delivering educational content on air, online and offlineKnowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI) continues to reach and teach more through its various educational programs and projects, significantly marking its 24th year of serving as the Filipino children’s school anywhere.
Since 1999, KCFI has been working to help improve education and learning outcomes in the country. These efforts have been recognized once again by one of the country’s longestrunning award-giving bodies, the Catholic Mass Media Awards (CMMA). For the 45th CMMAs, KCFI’s “MathDali” won the Best Children and Youth Program category, while simultaneously fielding finalists for Best Drama Series/Program with “I Love You 1000” and Best Station ID with “May K Ako.”
KCFI was also recognized by the Department of Education-Schools Division Office of Batangas during its 6th Kabataang Batangueño Tangkilikin education partners recognition rites for its Learning Effectively through Enhanced and Evidence-based Pedagogies (LEEP) training and mentoring program for teachers and school heads. Back in 2021, the foundation and the Lopez Learning Synergy Summit’s Education Cluster trained on LEEP for Science more than 30 Science teachers in Lobo. Early this 2023, it rolled out LEEP for K-12 for public schools in Calaca. To this day, KCFI continues to mentor and monitor these Batangueño LEEP participants.
Staying true to its history of providing fun and engaging educational resources, the foundation continues to develop and acquire various multimedia content. This month, KCFI worked with the Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Training Institute for “AgriKids,” aiming to provide agricultural literacy to Grades 3 to 5 learners. KCFI recently premiered on Knowledge Channel the National Commission for Culture and the Arts’ “Heneral Tuna,” an animated series which aims to instill Filipino values in young learners. The foundation is regularly releasing online content as well with new episodes of “MathDali Live,” “Wikaharian Online World,” “Knowledge on the Go” and “TalkED.”
KCFI partnered with the Rotary Club of Makati West (RCMW) to launch the “Gift of Hope” campaign, aiming to provide 24 schools with a Knowledge Channel Portable Media Library and desktop computers to improve education nationwide. The first of these turnovers took place on Oct. 27 with the SPED learners of Rosario Ocampo Elementary School in Taytay, Rizal wherein messages were shared by KCFI president and executive director Rina Lopez, RCMW president Dax Carlos, DepEd Rizal Schools Division superintendent Dr. Doris Estalilla and KCFI vice president and director of operations Edric Calma.
