GURO: Stories of Hope, Dedication and Courage

Guro: Stories of Hope, Dedication and Courage was created by the Carlos P. Romulo Foundation for Peace and Development in cooperation with The Foundation for Information Technology Education and Development (FIT-ED) in commemoration of Carlos P. Romulo’s service to the nation as Secretary of Education from (1965–1967). 

The thirty-minute video features the story of three Filipino guros (teachers) . . . ordinary people leading and creating extraordinary lives. Though they come from various backgrounds with their own stories of hardships, sufferings, and setbacks, and with different approaches to teaching, all three of them share the same goal—to improve the lives of their students. With hope, courage, and dedication to their profession and to their students, these individuals take to heart Romulo’s guiding principle that “youth must be prepared and educated for a better world than ours.”

FIT-ED is a private nonprofit organization established in 1997, which seeks to help people and communities to harness information and communication technologies for learning. In keeping with their mission, FIT-ED’s work is focused on three areas: Education Transformation, Education for All, Culture and Identity.
