Goducate volunteers in Laguna, Philippines, are trained in early childhood education

Last month, 5 Goducate volunteers whom Goducate had helped to pass the Alternative Learning System (ALS) examinations went on to successfully complete their training in early childhood education.

The ALS is an educational system in the Philippines that enables those who did not finish their schooling to complete their basic education.

Goducate arranged for the 5 ALS certificate holders to attend the fast-track Early Childhood Education Preschool Specialization Course run by the Rabbi Theological Seminary and International Ministries Inc (RTS-IMI). Such training is one of the requirements for qualifying as a teacher in daycare centres and kindergartens. RTS-IMI is a non-profit, theological institution that gives scholarships to ALS graduates for them to continue their schooling, especially in the fields of education. The diploma in Early Childhood Education that the 5 former Goducate ALS students received last month will enable them to better help the needy in the community.

One of the 5, Mrs Annaliza Española, spoke during the graduation. Her greatest dream when she was a child was to be a teacher, but poverty and many other factors prevented her from finishing her schooling. She added, “I thought there is no hope for my dream to become a teacher, but right now I am holding my diploma as one of my greatest dream in my life when I was a child, to become a teacher by profession.”

The other 4 Goducate students were Jonathan Catedral, Manuel Factor, Jenelyn Detangco, and Elenita Bigueras.

All the 5 volunteers are good examples of the vision of Goducate, whereby those who have been helped will help others when they reach a position in which they can do so.
