30 NVizcaya OSYs benefit from DepEd, British mining firm's literacy program

QUEZON, Nueva Vizcaya (September 18) -- At least 30 Out of School Youths (OSYs) here have been accepted to avail of the basic literacy and accreditation and equivalency program of the Department of Education (DepEd).

This came after British-owned MTL Philippines through its Runruno Livelihood Foundation(RLF) recently inked a memorandum of agreement for the implementation of the project.

Melanie Valenciano, head for the community development of the RLF said the project was intended to provide opportunity for adults or youths who are hard up to enter formal schooling to learn how to read and write and do basic arithmetic skills.

He Saint Mary's University (SMU) in Bayombong town also vowed to provide textbooks for the beneficiaries.

"We are very grateful for the project because our villagers here merely rely on farming as a means of their livelihood and they really find difficulty in sending their children to school," said mayor Aurelio Salunat.

MTL Philippines is at present doing mining exploration for possible gold and copper deposits in barangay Runruno here.

MTL would be shouldering the salaries of deployed teachers in the area who would be teaching the beneficiaries.

It is one of the large scale mining companies with multi-billion peso investments in the province along with Australian firm Oceana Gold Philippines in barangay Didipio in Kasibu town. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
