MANILA, Philippines — The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Board approved on Wednesday a P30.5 billion project to rebuild schools outside of Metro Manila.

The Department of Education’s Infrastructure for Safer and Resilient Schools (ISRS) Project will be largely funded by an official development assistance loan from the World Bank-International Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
