Mayor Abby Binay led the distribution of school supplies at Pembo Elementary School

Mayor Abby Binay showed up and handed the free school supplies at Pembo Elementary School, Wednesday, August 23.

Binay distributed the school supplies after the Department of Education (DepEd) gave the city government of Makati the green light to distribute free school supplies to students in the 14 public elementary and high schools in 10 barangays that are now under the jurisdiction of Taguig.


DepEd also permitted the use of school facilities in the distribution of supplies to over 45,000 students in the enlisted men’s barrio or “embo” barangays.

Binay said even though they had been given permission to distribute supplies as early as Aug. 18, they waited for the written confirmation.

“I preferred to wait for the documents that we have the permission to distribute school supplies,” she said in an interview in Pembo Elementary School, where she led the distribution.

The free supplies, which will be given to students from kindergarten to Grade 6, including special education students, include uniforms, bags, anti-dengue kits, shoes, socks, notebooks, ballpens and pencils.

Binay revealed that Taguig had a “last-minute” attempt to block the distribution of supplies as they asked for a written authority for the activity.

Asked if she had plans to run as mayor of Taguig in the 2025 elections, Binay said it is an “option,” but she has not decided yet because “it will be a difficult decision to make.”
