In 2005, G-Watch has pilot-tested the Bayanihang Eskwela: The Citizens'
Monitoring of DPWH-Implemented School Building Projects in 25 school
sites in Luzon. Its promise of government and civil society participation
has come to pass and proved to be an effective tool to involve the
communities in government project monitoring.

  To share and disseminate the Bayanihang Eskwela tool to the wider
public, the Ateneo School of Government, with assistance from USAID's
Rule of Law Effectiveness (ROLE) Project, shall release it in the form of
a publication. We are set to launch it on 15 October 2007, 10 a.m. to 12
noon, at the Amphitheatre of the Ateneo Professional Schools, Rockwell
Center, Makati City,

  In this regard, we would like to invite you to the launching event,
which shall be attended by civil society groups from all over the
Philippines. With your help and support, we hope to mobilize more
citizens for this initiative.

  Enclosed herewith is the draft program for the event.For confirmation
please call 426-6062 or text 0917-8872636; 0919-8021559, look for Gladys
