The Philippine National Commission for UNESCO (PH NatCom), otherwise known as UNESCO National Commission of the Philippines (UNACOM), in partnership with UNESCO Jakarta Office, Department of Education (DepEd), and the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), gathered 150 teachers, partners, and stakeholders for a National Forum on Alternative Learning System (ALS) entitled “NO ONE LEFT BEHIND: Better Life for Out-of-School Girls to Fight Against Poverty and Injustice in the Philippines — Hindsights, Insights, and Foresights” on 28 February, 2019.

The national forum generated recommendations from teachers, school heads, and relevant stakeholders on the development of new ALS learning modules and teachers’ guides. These recommendations focused on the contemporary needs of capacity building for ALS mobile teachers, district ALS coordinators and ALS girl-learners.

PH NatCom Secretary General Lila Ramos Shahani acknowledged in her speech that she welcomes the partnership with DepEd, UNESCO Jakarta Office, and KOICA to strengthen national commitment to better the lives of the most disenfranchised sectors of our society.
