RTNFI LogoUnited in the vision of helping the indigenous people within the mining impact barangays of Bataraza, Palawan to read, write and count, the Chairman of the Board, Atty. Manny Zamora and Rev. Fr. Jerome Marquez, SVD, engaged in an educational program since 2006. This program is perfectly aligned with the literacy condition of the communities. Fr. Jerome’s experiences in the Alternative Learning System in Cavite and NCR and as Director of the prestigious St. Jude Catholic School, introduced the program known as Indigenous Learning System (ILS). The ILS Program is essentially the same in content as the Deped ALS Program such as modules and A and E exam requirement for each learner to get a diploma in secondary education. Now in its 8 years of implementation, the program increased the literacy level of these communities to 90% and facilitated the college education of more or less 300 IP as scholars through a scholarship program of the company.
