EDUCATION PROGRAM HISTORY

Payatas is a depressed area in Quezon City where poverty, lack of basic health care, malnutrition, unemployment and lack of access to good education are some of the basic and most important challenges for the community. Most of the residents fall below the poverty level, living harsh conditions in the depressed areas. It also has the fastest growing population in the city. The composition of the population is generally young. Its elementary school age population (6 to 12 years old) comprises to 44% and its secondary age population (13 to 16 years old) comprises 25% of the total population with educational institutions consisting only of five public elementary schools, four private elementary schools, one public high school and three private high schools. This community was handled by the missionaries of The Sons of Divine Providence who held the pastoral care since 1999.

Human development and evangelization are essential components of missionary task of the Church. The first step of the program was to start the scholarship program last 1992 for 200 students of elementary and high school from the poorest families. It has organized an “Education for All Project” under the coordination of the Mother of Divine Providence Parish. It has a scholarship program for 420 elementary and high school students from the poorest families. The scholarship program however is no guarantee that the students will enroll in college after they graduate in high school. Their chances are severely constrained by the poor quality of their formal education, inadequate access to instructional materials, and the likelihood of performing poorly in national achievement tests. One component of this “Education for All Project” is the Blessed Luigi Orione Library and Computer Center. It is a learning center that houses library, computer and informal training centers. It was established to enhance the knowledge and potentials of students, parents, teachers, volunteers and other members of Payatas community.

In 2007,  the "Education for All Project" became Education Program of PAOFI. PAOFI Education Program has two components: Scholarship and Tutorial. It has been active in Barangay Payatas in Quezon City, and in 2011 has extended the humanitarian work to Barangay Dalahican and Talao-Talao in Lucena City.
