 ATI-EP Learners join 1st ALS Community Caravan

The 1st ALS Community Caravan kicked off with a marching band in colourful banners. Joining in were more than a hundred of individuals composed of Alternative Learning System (ALS) learners, teachers, LGUs, and other stakeholders. The event was held on January 13, 2017 at Baclayon Covered Court, Baclayon, Bohol.

Distinguished guests present during the activity were: Bohol Governor Edgardo M. Chatto; Dr. Casiana P. Caberte, Chief CID-Bohol Division; Dr. Wilfreda D. Bongalos, Superintendent, Bohol Division; and Dr. Carolyn May O. Daquio, Training Center Superintendent II, ATI-7.

One of the highlights of the event is the sharing of ALS successful stories. Mr. Mario Lumaad’s story stood out among others. He was 43 years old and an elementary graduate, who did not lose hope in achieving higher education. He enrolled in ALS Program and successfully passed the assessment tests and was able to proceed to a four-year Bachelor Course in Education. At 48, he is now teaching at Bohol North Western College, Catigbian, Bohol. Truly an inspiration to all ALS learners.

Also participated in the said activity, the twenty (20) ATI-EP learners of ATI-Region 7. These learners are at their elementary and highschool level ages 14-21, who want to pursue college degree. The implementation of ATI-EP in Region 7 is in partnership with the DepEd ALS, knowing that ALS program principles suit the needs of these OSYs/ATI-EP Learners.

The Academic and Technology Integration-Education Program (ATI-EP) is an education and training intervention of ATI in support to the Youth Empowerment through a sustainable (YES) Program for the 4H clubs in the Philippines, preparing the youth as a new breed of competent farmers of the new generation.

what our clients say...

Mapasalamaton kaayo ko nga usa ako sa napili pagtambong niining seminar. Daghan kaayo ko nga nakat-unan nga magamit nako sa akong pagbaol. Maayo kaayong mupasabot ang mga resource speakers. Maabi-abihon ug sayong duolon ang mga taga- ATI nga nagdumala sa pagbansay-bansay. Nadasig gyud ko sa pagsagop sa mga pamaagi nga gitudlo ilabi na nga gihatagan mi sa ATI ug mga vegetable seeds ug cacao seedlings ug gikan sa OPA-Cebu nga seedlings sa talong ug sili. Naglantaw ako nga makatambong ug dugang pang seminar sa panguma sa umaabot. Salamat kaayo sa ATI-RTC 7, sa mga resource persons, sa Lungsod sa Barili nga nipadayun namo.
