In addition, 250 also completed their Balik Paaralan Para sa Out-of-School Adults in the secondary level administered by 12 mobile teachers assigned to the different municipalities.

Yongoyong also related that last year they were able to establish 16 mobile libraries for the BLP, 12 in the elementary BLP and 29 in the secondary BLP dispersed to the different places where the classes were held.
