Project Report | Nov 2, 2021
The Longest Education Shutdown in the World

Dear Supporter,

We hope our latest update finds you safe and well.

We are sharing our 10th COVID-19 Response report, highlighting our activities and achievements from July - October 2021 in Cebu and Leyte. Since our last report, the Philippines has become the only country in the world that has not reopened schools.

At the time of writing, it means children have been out of school for 602 consecutive days, prolonging the emergency and making our response all the more imperative. Here are the impact snapshots since in the last 3 months.

  • We have reached an additional 294 highly vulnerable youth with  'Safe and Learn-from-Home' packs, taking our total reach to 1,063 vulnerable youth in the last nine months. 

  • We have continued to deliver  'Community Learning Spaces' in Leyte, providing access to safe learning zones for children who do not have access to learning spaces. In total, 240 children have been impacted through regular access to mentors and a safe learning environment since it was launched in partnership with local health authorities.

  • We have supported an additional 96 youth through the delivery an 12 mentorship sessions across Cebu and Leyte

  • Created and delivered reading and comprehension support classes for 82 learners identified as slow and non-readers from 3 established CLS in Leyte. In addition to direct support to sustain their education, youth have also been attending mentorship sessions to improve their SEL

  • We have continued to produce and share educational and social issue videos by the youth for the youth. In total, we have produced 23 new Stay at Home Exercise videos and 10 educational videos tackling various social issues that have gained over 47,761 unique views.

The impact of these direct interventions on the educational and psychosocial welfare of children cannot be understated as we enter the 20th month of the COVID-19 emergency. With a recent announcement that public schools will not reopen until March 2022, at the earliest, our focus continues to be reaching and teaching children to ensure they will return when schools reopen in 2022. Our next steps between now and the new year are;

  • Reach an additional 240 children by launching the Community Learning Spaces in 8 new communities (30 children per community) across North Tacloban, where we have been advised children are facing increased risks of educational deficit and drop out. 

  • Continue to reach and extend support to existing communities across Leyte and Cebu, and monitor the ongoing mental health of youth in the hardest to reach communities.  


We again thank you for your ongoing support of our work and share photos and links to demonstrate the impact our work is having.

In gratitude and with hope,
