Coalitions for Change Helps Title Public School Sites
A surprising 90 percent of 46,379 sites of Philippine public schools are not properly titled. This is problematic because schools may be vulnerable to usurpation and adverse claims of ownership if their rights to the property remain unclear.
The Coalitions for Change (CfC) program worked with the Department of Education (DepEd) and Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to unravel the problem. In 2015, CfC helped obtain land titles for 2,053 schools; an unprecedented 51,225 percent increase from the previous average of four titles per year.
