Mam Leila

by  LEILA G. VALENCIA

 

As I was looking for a place where to conduct my Alternative Learning System Class popularly called Non-Formal Education. I found Barangay Ortiz as an ideal one because of its strategic location for a small business and with its site near the sea.

Most of the people living there are taking their source for a living from the nearby wharf where pumpboats via Guimaras-Iloilo City and vice-versa dock. The place is so ideal.

 I surveyed the area and conducted interviews with the residents. The result was that they do not have the capacity to put up a business even if they want to. They have no other choice but to wait for their husband to come home and give them budget for the whole day that includes three meals, children’s school allowances and projects and other basic needs at home excluding medicines. What with P150 – P200 average income a day for five to 10 mouths to feed.

 How sad, isn’t it? Indeed, because of their ignorance and lack of motivation, they live below the poverty line.

 But wish God-given talents and intellect, we have the potential to become wealth producers. Don’t you think we do not deserve this? God’s original plan for us is to enjoy life in abundance but we need to use heavenly wisdom. We must be wise and be a good steward to all these things He has given us. What we need is being creative, being industrious and being practical.

 Here’s good news for those who wish to learn and intend to engage in a small business.

The Bureau of Alternative Learning System and its staff will go to the grassroots to serve those who have the desire to acquire skills and institutions to be educated and have a productive life.

 Further, what it needs is an open mind, a teachable heart and a willing spirit.

 So what are you waiting for? If you are interested to be a part of this ALS program, just approach our ALS implementor  Mrs. Leila G. Valencia or visit our school. We are more than willing to serve you.
