3 campus orgs qualify in top 7 Greenwich Aralkada Program


Three campus organizations of Iloilo Science and Technology University (ISAT U) qualified in the the top seven (7)  of the Greenwich Aralkada Program.

The selected youth organizations are College of Engineering and Architecture Students Council (CEA-SC), Environmental Club and The Technovator.  The three organizations qualified based on the project concepts presented last October 3 before the Greenwich Aralkada Program panelists.

CEA-SC’s project entitled, “Captivate, Engage, Attract – Spawn Children’s Interest in Science and Math” (CEA-SCISM) aims to provide a learning center for teaching Math and Science using an Outcome Based Education (OBE) system. This modern and innovative approach is expected to create a big impact in encouraging Grade 3 and 6 pupils of Taal Elementary School at Barangay East Timawa, Molo, and Iloilo City in learning Science and Math.











As for the Environmental Club, its “Project Hunol” aims to seek for beneficiaries who need assistance in academic performance. The project has plans on organizing a weekend peer tutoring session that will foster the barkadahan of the youth.

Project Hunol will also develop an interactive workbook that will uplift the functional literacy of the pupils. The school, (Aripdip Elementary School from District of San Rafael) will receive seeds for development and source of nutrition for the students. A multi-purpose room will be constructed in the school to serve as an avenue for the beneficiaries to harness their academic performance and enhance a school-to-community relation.

On the other hand, the Technovator’s project will implement Aralkada Functional Literacy Program among elementary pupils (Grades 4-6) of San Rafael Central School for six months. Different learning activities will be contributed by the staff from their field of specialization to hone students’ academic skills and performance. A livelihood program will be introduced to the pupil’s parent or guardian to meet the necessary needs of the pupils like school supplies and other educational materials.

As preparation for the implementation of the organizations’ projects, the Greenwich Aralkada Program, provided them with commendations and recommendations on the project concepts they presented.  

For making it to the top 7, five representatives from each organization attended the Greenwich Alkarada Youth Camp last October 23-25 at Damires Hills Tierra Verde, Brgy. Damires, Janiuay, Iloilo. The three-day youth camp was for the purpose of helping the groups improve their project ideas further by understanding functional literacy.

The projects will be implemented  in November to March 2016.
