Alternative Learning System Mobile Teacher and ALS- Differently-Abled Persons

  1. 1. The ALS Mobile Teacher Program Literacy is a positive factor in human capacity building. It is an enabling factor, releasing people’s capacities, rather than giving deprived individuals what they do not have. It is the core engine of human development and, in this respect, its impact has to be seen in terms of its benefit to communities and individuals, rather than merely in terms of whether individuals are able to read and write or sign their names. Literacy expands our scope to act, while extending our duties and responsibilities. - CONFITEA, Hamburg 1999
  2. 2. WHAT IS THE ALS MOBILE TEACHER PROGRAM? It is a delivery mode of ALS programs where “specialized” teachers called the ALS Mobile Teachers live among the people in remote barangays of the country to conduct intensive community-based training for illiterate out-of-school youth and adults who are willing to learn basic literacy skills.
