The referral or suggestion of one foundation to another, bears fruit that benefited students from Tacloban.

When the Consuelo Foundation learned about a visit of Dualtech to Tacloban, they invited Streetlight to come over to check what Dualtech could offer. That was the first encounter of Streetlight with Dualtech. Three staff from Streetlight attended the orientation and they were amazed with the values formation that a trainee could inherit. Streetlight was also convinced of the platform of being employed after two years of studies.

Cebuana Lhuillier Foundation

“Enabling adult school dropouts to continue studying through Alternative Learning Centers.”

ALS is a parallel learning system that provides a practical option to the existing formal instruction. When one does not have or cannot access formal education in schools, ALS is an alternate or substitute. ALS includes both the non-formal and informal sources of knowledge and skills.

The Cebuana Lhuillier Foundation, enabled thousands of school dropouts to restart their education through 19 Alternative Learning Centers. These centers promote the Alternative Learning System (ALS). Some students who finished High School through ALS were given further opportunities by continuing their education in Dualtech.
