As the digital payments have emerged as an important tool for advancing financial inclusion, PLDT-Smart Foundation has partnered with PayMaya to provide a complete financial picture and learning resources in one place through its flagship program for teachers, Gabay Guro.

This partnership will help the teachers easily access their learning materials using the existing Gabay Guro app while being able to do some various digital financial transactions such as paying for online and in-store purchases, sending money, paying bills, buying load, and paying government fees, among others.

Providing teachers a PayMaya account within the Gabay Guro app will help enrich the resources available to them, especially as they adapt to our new normal which is increasingly digital. Combined with various learning and other resources available within the app, we are confident that this new platform can help improve their day-to-day teaching lives," said Gabay Guro Chairperson Chaye Cabal-Revilla.


On top of these features, the app will also offer other capabilities such as the ability to receive badges that can be converted into MVP Rewards, availing of promos and training sessions from Gabay Guro partners and mentors, and access to livelihood programs.

Soon, they can also receive cash assistance, incentives, and loans designed for educators and even get additional livelihood opportunities in the e-commerce space through their PayMaya account within the Gabay Guro app.

For his part, PayMaya Founder and CEO Orlando Vea said: “Having a digital financial account will help complement the wealth of resources for teachers that will be available in the app. As we all transition to digital, it’s important that we empower our teachers with the right tools and resources so that they are able carry out their work well, for the sake of all Filipino youth everywhere” added Mr. Vea.


"The Department of Education has always acknowledged the Gabay Guro program and the PLDT Group as an important partner of the education sector. We’re happy that the Gabay Guro app, together with PayMaya, will provide our teachers with a holistic platform that will empower and help them thrive in the new normal,” added Department of Education, Undersecretary Tonisito Umali.
