More US aid in Bangsamoro
Through its ABC+ project, USAID provides early grade reading materials for students and supports teacher development.
A new round of activities was organized by the US government to help improve the quality of education in the Bangsamoro and strengthen the region’s adaptation to the effects of climate change.
In Cotabato City, USAID launched a P15-million technology-based education program in pilot areas in the region.
The Beginning Reading Program will use tablets to deliver reading instruction to students in Kindergarten through Grade 3.
The tablets contain early-grade reading materials, including video-based “beginning reading” instructional modules in Hiligaynon, Central Bikol and Magindanawn.
Through its ABC+ project, USAID provides early grade reading materials for students and supports teacher development to improve basic education outcomes in literacy and social and emotional learning for all Bangsamoro children.
In Cotabato City, USAID also handed over Automated Weather Station equipment to the city government to collect weather and climate data and provide real-time weather monitoring and assessment.
This equipment will help enhance the city’s disaster management and mapping capabilities, which will contribute to the region’s climate resilience.
Through its Climate Resilient Cities project, USAID is improving the resilience of six cities in the Philippines (Batangas, Borongan, Cotabato, Iloilo, Legazpi, and Zamboanga) to adapt, mitigate, and manage the impacts of climate change and other disasters.
