PLDT-SMART Foundation's CSR, Gabay Guro, recognizes the need for regular teacher training courses. Knowing that teachers have the power to shape the future of their students, and therefore, the nation, Gabay Guro sees to it that the skills of teachers are enhanced as well. To do so, Gabay Guro works with six core pillars: Scholarship Grants and Training Programs, providing computers and broadband connections to schools, Livelihood and Housing Programs and the Teacher's tribute program such as the annual Grand Gathering.

The Gabay Guro training program grants teachers the opportunity to attend a refresher course known as Teacher's Treasure Chest and classes in English Proficiency. The Teacher's Treasure Chest training provides the venue to learn golden lessons for effective teaching and to revisit timeless teaching principles. Meanwhile, the English Proficiency program enables teachers to become more comfortable with the regular use of English in the classroom. By the end of the course, the trainees are able to understand the real meaning of the teaching vocation.

Behind Gabay Guro's training programs is Deng Kibanoff, Vice President for Training and Career at PLDT. As a volunteer of Gabay Guro, he developed programs like Teacher's Treasure Chest to help revive the passion for teaching among teachers in the Philippines.

With training, Gabay Guro has been able to change the lives of those who have changed ours - so that they can continue to bring better education to more generations of students.
