The 4 million worth of project was granted under the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Project (GGP) of the Embassy of Japan and was turned over in 2017. On its second year of operation, the CLC continuously provides suitable venue for Alternative Learning System (ALS) program implementation. Learners for basic literacy, and accreditation & equivalency for both elementary and secondary are well motivated to learn because of the conducive learning environment. In fact, even the learners from coastal and interior barangays in far-flung areas of the municipality, prefer to attend classes in the CLC building. This has caused a remarkable increase in the enrollment for SY 2019-2020. As reflected in the enrollment; in south district, from 129 in 2018 to 162 in SY 2019-2020 (25% increase); while in north district, from 109 in 2018 to 155 in SY 2019-2020 (42% increase).
Moreover, according to ALS implementers, it is much easier and inspiring for them to work and facilitate learning because of the well-equipped facility. Their effective and efficient program implementation has been reflected in the increase of the number of takers and passers during the accreditation and equivalency examination. Apparently, there is 181% increase in the total number of takers (from 32 in 2017 to 90 in 2018) and 227% increase in the number of passers (from 22 in 2017 to 72 in 2018). There is also an increase in the percentage of total passers in proportion to total number of takers; from 68.75% in 2017 to 80% in 2018.
The increase in the number of enrollees-beneficiaries of the project, could be translated into reduction of out-of-school children and youth in the municipality who are considered to be at risk individuals. This also means that the municipality is on progress in raising the literacy level of its community people.
