135 OSYs in Benguet receive support from CLFI


Uniforms, t-shirts, laptops, and projectors with screens were provided for at least 135 out-of-school youth learners by Cebuana Lhuillier Foundation, Inc. (CLFI) during the DepEd-Cebuana Lhuillier Alternative Learning System (ALS) Community Learning Center (CLC) launch in Benguet last August 4 at Lubuagan Central School, Kalinga Province.

Students, Department of Education (DepEd) representatives, ALS teachers in 13 districts of Kalinga, and local government units headed by Mayor Johnny Dickpus of Lubuagan, Kalinga province were there in full force to support the program. ALS Education Program Supervisor Romulo Galnawan thanked CLFI for “helping literacy workers in fighting for the least, last, and lost” while the students expressed their gratitude with a song in their local dialect entitled “So be it.”

Meanwhile, the launching of La Trinidad ALS Community Learning Center in Puguis Elementary School, Benguet last July became an avenue for Benguet Division to send their heartfelt gratitude.
