Operation: Barrio Schools is the longest running and biggest private-sector-led schoolbuilding construction program in the Philippines. To augment the country’s classroom shortage, two-classroom schoolbuildings are built in public schools in all regions through donations from FFCCCII members and from benevolent organizations, families and individuals within the Chinese-Filipino community.

Operation: Barrio Schools started in 1961 and has since supported the education program of nine Philippine Presidents, since the time of President Carlos P. Garcia.

During the first decade, 100 schoolbuildings were built, while 300 schoolbuildings were built in the following decade. The project picked up momentum as the years went by and in 2015, the 5,000th schoolbuilding donation was turned over.
