Sa Aklat Sisikat Foundation continues to work towards creating a nation of readers
Emboldened by the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab Survey Study and their recent report that determined that the SAS program has a “large and statistically signifi cant impact on the reading habits of students,” SAS is currently in the process of translating our teacher-training program online! We are doing this through a new initiative called the Computer Access Mentorship Program (CAMP), which is funded by Republic of Korea’s e-Asia and Knowledge Partnership Fund, through the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
SAS was awarded a grant for the development of an online teacher training program, as well as the creation of a number of computer labs. CAMP will be implemented by SAS over a period of three consecutive years, in coordination with the Boy Scouts of the Philippines (BSP). The computer labs, or ‘CAMP Sites,’ will serve as a venue for elementary school teachers to learn new and innovative teaching methods through the online, in-service program. The program will be aimed specifi cally at the improvement of the teacher’s skills in the teaching of reading.
