How the Magdalena Library became a center for Alternative Learning System of the community


The Mini-Library or Service Center in Magdalena is now a classroom that is used by community-based program called ALS or Alternative Learning System since June 2014.

ALS is a non-formal education program in the Philippines for drop-outs in elementary and secondary schools.  Shierly, the mother of Lindsay Lee Dela Torre (PHMG0033FCZ), was enrolled in this program. According to her, she did not finish her high school education because she got pregnant at a very early age which resulted to early marriage. She is thankful for this opportunity given to her to go back to school again through ALS.

She said, “My age and my civil status will not be a hindrance to pursue my dream to finish high school education. I want to take up a vocational technology course after I receive my diploma.”

Mrs. Sheryl  Sierra, Mrs. Rosalie Diokno, and Mrs. Grace Abustan are the  teachers of  ALS program in Magdalena, Laguna. The three teachers are very grateful because International Needs has put up a mini-library in the community. One of them said, “The place is very conducive to learning and the text books are very useful in teaching   Science, Math, English and Filipino subjects.”
