A strong believer in the importance of education in the growth and development of a country, Israeli Ambassador to the Philippines Ilan Fluss and Embassy volunteers joined the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Brigada Eskwela at Bagong Tanyag Integrated School (BTIS) in Taguig City.

Speaking to THEPHILBIZNEWS last Tuesday, October 25 at the Austrian Embassy National Day reception, Ambassador Fluss said that it would be a lot easier for the Israel Embassy and MASHAV to just donate the study tables for the children, but they all opted to take the laborious assembling and painting to show unity and spur inspiration to the children and teachers.

“My wife, Gila, is a teacher. We are happy to participate physically in the Brigada Eskwela and to work side by side with the community, especially with the teachers and students. This is a fulfilling initiative, and we hope that our little assistance will inspire the students to study well. Education is very important in Jewish tradition,” Ambassador Fluss said.

The Israeli Ambassador emphasized in his opening remarks the friendly relations between Israel and the Philippines. He said that the Embassy is eager to collaborate with various fields to strengthen the relations.

Ready for turnover for the children to use.

The event was held to support the preparations for the full implementation of face-to-face classes in the Philippines. The school thanked the Embassy’s generosity for donating more tables to help practice social distancing among the kindergarten pupils. In addition, the Israeli Embassy donated a number of gadgets and health supplements. This project is in partnership with MASHAV, Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation.
