Quadrant of Development: Responsive Education
TVI Resource Development Philippines Inc. (TVIRD) subscribes to the principle that education is essential in advancing human rights, gender equity, social justice and a healthy environment in communities that host its operations. There can be no sustainable future without a responsive and inclusive education system.
In implementing its Responsive Education initiatives as a major component of its Quadrants of Development, TVIRD engages other public and private sector partners to ensure that programs for the advancement of education are relevant to its beneficiaries.
TVIRD views education as a lifelong, holistic and inclusive process. That is why the company’s education program extends to toddlers through day care centers; to children and adolescents through schools and teachers, learning tools and instructional equipment; to adults through organized literacy programs; and to parents through seminars on gender sensitivity and responsible parenthood. TVIRD also makes sure that affected communities are knowledgeable about its operations and activities as well as the mining industry in general through intensive information-education-communication (IEC) campaigns, which have resulted in growing positive interest and support from critical stakeholders.
