The Story

The Alternative Learning Education (ALE) program by Programa Genio, the educational advocacy arm of the ABS CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc., aims to provide learning opportunities for under-served individuals in the Philippines. The program supports access to equivalent pathways for completing basic education and focuses on community rebuilding through knowledge, attitude, skills, and habit development.

Education inequities and gaps in the Philippines deprive many individuals of equal opportunities to access quality education. The ALE program is critical in addressing this urgency by providing out-of-school youth and adults the chance to develop basic literacy skills, access equivalent certifications, and receive functional education and literacy training. By bridging these gaps, the program empowers individuals to become economically independent and self-sufficient.


Disparities in basic education and the digital divide pose significant challenges in the Philippines. Remote and disadvantaged areas need more infrastructure, resources, and qualified teachers, leading to unequal learning opportunities. The COVID-19 pandemic has further exacerbated the digital divide, hindering access to online learning for students in rural and low-income areas.


The ALE program addresses these challenges through upskilling and reskilling teachers and learners. We provide training to enhance teaching methodologies and create modules for students. The program also offers the Accreditation and Equivalency (A&E) program, enabling learners to earn elementary or secondary equivalency certificates, and the Functional Education and Literacy Program (FELP), which focuses on community-based literacy training for out-of-school youth and adults from disadvantaged backgrounds.
