Summary

This project will train over 100 principals and teachers from the 38 public schools in Coron, a vulnerable island in Palawan, Philippines on Learning Effectively through Enhanced Pedagogies (LEEP) with special emphasis on disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. Each school will also receive a hard disk drive with educational videos. This will give them an opportunity to improve educational outcomes and increase the chance of survival of their students when disaster strikes.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The new K+12 curriculum of the Philippines aims to enhance the educational system, but teachers must be trained to ensure that approaches and technologies result in effective learning. Typhoon Haiyan destroyed lives and homes in Coron. It made Filipinos realize that the structures and people are not prepared for disasters. An educational program is needed that will contribute to the students' better learning and will also build their resiliency that will allow them to survive natural disasters.

How will this project solve this problem?

KCFI produces and distributes educational videos and activities for use in public schools and also conducts LEEP trainings for educators that are consistent with the Philippines' new K+12 curriculum. LEEP will help improve the students' educational outcomes through the use of enhanced pedagogies in the classroom. A special emphasis in this training is to help 38 principals and 76 teachers build resiliency in the community, especially in 13,000 students so they may withstand future disasters.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will enhance the qualities of over 100 principals and teachers through the LEEP program; and will also enable them to affect the chances of survival in disasters of 13,000 students, and those of the communities they could influence. The educational media materials worth over $4M will also help the students improve their learning outcomes. In the long term, the impact will reflect on teachers' performance, students' attendance and passing rates as borne out by KCFI's past experiences
