100% of VIDES BMDK ALS Participants Pass National Exam

Last March, the Department of Education's Bureau of Alternative Learning System released the list of students who passed the ALS Assessment and Equivalency (A&E) Examination, a national non-formal achievement affirmation examination.  

VIDES is proud to announce that 16 out of 16 (or 100%) of the Busina Mo, Dunong Ko participants who took the said national exam last year passed and successfully hurdled the challenge.  Of this number, 11 come from Brgy. 143, Pasay and 5 are from Brgy. 286 in Delpan, Manila.  They attended daily ALS classes at the Don Bosco School Sta. Mesa
from June to October 2012.

The learners  received their High School diplomas signed by Education Secretary Bro. Armin Luistro during the graduation rites held last March 7, 2013 at the Folk Arts Theatre.    

VIDES launched the ALS Program in October 2010 with the end in view of breaking the cycle of illiteracy among the out-of-school youth attending the mobile education project, Busina Mo, Dunong Ko. 

In May 2011, the best practices of the BMDK Mobile Education Project was presented during the Bureau International Catholique L'Enfance (BICE) Congress in Paris, France.
