Free Forum & Workshop for ALS

On April 27, 2015, Bituen will conduct Sustainability & 3Rs forum and workshop in cooperation with Environmental Management Bureau  this time with  DepEd's Alternative Learning System coordinators and teachers as participants. A strategic move to maximize the information and skills campaign, the workshop expects to multiply the effect as the teachers and coordinators are involved in the informal education of marginalized and out-school-youths and adults who caanot afford formal education due to poverty.

To help raise funds for the inclusion of tool kit for the teacher-participants, Bituen and partners are offering sale of Gift Certificates which buyers or their recipients may use in shopping.

The proceeds will fund the pictured kit above. The workshop is only first in a series to be conducted with DepEd's ALS teachers. More are to follow. Please purchase one and spread!
