Okada Manila Supports Alternative Learning System (ALS) Through Pass It Forward

Many Filipinos do not have a chance to attend and finish formal basic education for various reasons, including poverty and lack of schools in their communities. Through the Alternative Learning System (ALS) of the Department of Education (DepEd), Filipinos who have not able to finish formal basic education can get a high school diploma.

 

ALS provides a practical option by providing modular and flexible programs. ALS students can take classes outside schools—in community-based learning centers, libraries or at home, and all are being managed by ALS learning facilitators. The initial beneficiaries of the program are kasambahays or the domestic helpers. Beneficiaries who are able to get their diploma are very thankful to ALS.

“Now I can finally say that I have finished high school through ALS. It helped me find a better job and also made my children proud of me.”
– Romana B. Rodriguez, ALS Passer


The ALS of the Schools Division Office in Malabon City, Philippines seeks to empower kasambahays by providing them access and support to finish their basic education. Most kasambahays are out-of-school and their salaries are not enough to support their schooling.

“We give premium to ALS. There’s a significant number that we still want to cater. That’s why we wanted to upgrade our platform in offering the alternative learning system.”
– Jenilyn Rose B. Corpus, Officer in Charge


In partnership with Pass It Forward, Okada Manila supports the ALS of the School Division Office in Malabon City by providing educational materials such as sewing machines, salon kits, and a photocopy machine for reproducing modules. As their give back, the ALS students committed to help the school feed the children in their feeding program and train the parents using the skills that they have learned in school.

Okada Manila believes that no child or adult should be left behind in education. With the help of Pass It Forward, the company brings positive change in the country by supporting educational programs such as ALS.

Like Okada, you can also make a difference by supporting campaigns at Pass It Forward.
