Dumingag initiates ECEP for lumad children

Pagadian City (Nov. 11) -- To address the problem on illiteracy, the local government unit of Dumingag in partnership with the Parents Teachers Association, the barangay government and the ASISI Development Foundation join hands in the quest to educate its people especially the natives or'lumad' children.

Dumingag Mayor Nacianceno Pacalioga, Jr. said, they have initiated one special program intended for the lumad children in areas where there is no day care centers particularly the far flung barangays and sitios. He noted that majority of the people residing in these areas belongs to the Subanen tribe and most of them are illiterate.

This special program known as the Early Childhood Education Program (ECEP) for lumad children is being conducted in 17 makeshifts schools (day care) build using indigenous materials ?'cogon' for its roofing and wallings, Pacalioga said.

Chief Executive added, we have also trained 17 Para-Teachers to teach the children basic education following the same module used in the day care schools. And after their attendance in ECEP the children are qualified to enter formal classes in grade 1.

These Para-Teachers were given P1,500 per month; P500 from the municipal government, P500 from the barangay and another P500 from the ASISI Development Foundation.

ASISI also provided the learners with school supplies and other educational and instructional materials needed in the school, Pacalioga said. (pia9/zds/cal) [top]
