ASIDE FROM THE COTTAGES, THE VILLAGE HAS A CUTS OF EGV LAUNDRY AND KITCHEN SIZEABLE LAUNDRY, KITCHEN, AND SEVERAL CLINICS.

SITS OF BIRTHRIGHT STUDENTS PLAYING

JUST THIRTY MINUTES’ DRIVE SOUTH OF E-G-V IS THE BIRTHRIGHT EDUCATORS FOUNDATION, A

CUT TO BIRTHRIGHT BUILDING FAÇADE

PRIVATE INSTITUTION THAT ALSO CATERS TO CHILDREN WITH LEARNING AND MENTAL DISABILITIES.

SITS OF BIRTHRIGHT CLASSES

BIRTHRIGHT HAS A SMALLER NUMBER OF

STUDENTS AND STAFF. IT FOLLOWS THE SCHOOL OF TOMORROW LEARNING SYSTEM, WHICH ALLOWS STUDENTS TO LEARN AT THEIR OWN PACE. ONE-TOSIT OF A STUDENT ON ONE-ON-ONE SESSION ONE THERAPY SESSIONS IN BIRTHRIGHT COST 90,000 PESOS A YEAR, BUT THE DIRECTOR SAYS THE SCHOOL GIVE SUBSIDIES TO THOSE WHO CANNOT PAY.

SOT: MRS. MIRIAM DEL ROSARIO, SCHOOL DIRECTRESS, BIRTHRIGHT EDUCATORS’ FOUNDATION WE REALLY HAVE A TUITION FEE FOR EVERYBODY, BUT FOR EXAMPLE A PARENTS, A PARENT COMES AND THEN HE SAYS GUSTO KO SANA DITO KASO LANG HINDI NAMIN MA-AFFORD ANG TUITION FEE, SO, HOW MUCH CAN YOU AFFORD? AND THEN WE AGREE, OKAY, BASTA ANG AMING POLICY IS WE DON’T REJECT A CHILD, UH THERE ARE SOME CHILDREN WHO DON’T PAY TUTITON FEES AT ALL, BECAUSE WE KNOW WALA TALAGANG EARNING, SINGLE PARENT

SIT OF BIRTHRIGHT CANTEEN

ASIDE FROM THAT, THE SCHOOL ALSO SUPPORTS BUSINESS INITIATIVES OF THE STUDENTS’ PARENTS. BIRTHRIGHT HAS ALLOWED ONE OF THE MOTHERS

SIT OF MOTHER DOING BEADWORK

TO SET UP A CANTEEN FREE OF RENT. THEY ALSO BUY THE BEADWORK THAT SOME MOTHERS SELL.

THE LEARNING CENTER IN PARANAQUE HAS A SIMILAR PROGRAM FOR ITS STUDENTS CALLED THE SHELTERED SOCIAL ENTERPRISE PROGRAM, WHERE STUDENTS MAKE HANDICRAFT AND FOODSTUFF

THAT ARE PUT UP FOR SALE.

YEARLY TUITION FEES IN THE LEARNING CENTER REACH AROUND 86,000 PESOS. IT BOASTS OF A SPACIOUS CAMPUS AND EXTENSIVE FACILITIES FOR THE CARE OF ITS STUDENTS.

SIT OF BAUTISTA WALKING IN A ROOM

HOWEVER, ACCORDING TO THE CURRICULUM DIRECTOR LANDA BAUTISTA, THE SCHOOL STILL FACE DIFFICULTIES IN FINANCES.

SOT: LANDA BAUTISTA, CURRICULUM DIRECTOR, THE LEARNING CENTER INC.: AS A FOUNDATION ONE OF OUR CHALLENGES, WELL, I GUESS IS FINANCIAL, NO? WE NEED A LOT MORE FUNDIGN TO INSTITUTE OR TO START A LOT OF OUR PROGRAMS

SHOT OF NEWSPAPER ARTICLES ABOUT TLC

SO, EVEN WHEN THEY’RE PRIVATELY-FUNDED, BOTH BIRTHRIGHT AND TLC RELY ON THE PRIVATE SECTOR FOR ASSISTANCE.

SOT 1: BAUTISTA RECENTLY WE’VE HAD, WE’VE BEEN ABLE TO HOLD UHM…FUND RAISING ACTIVITIES, WE’VE BEEN ABLE TO GET GRANTS, UHM, WE WERE ABLE TO GET A GRANT FROM THE AUSTRALIAN EMBASSY, THE DIRECT AID PROGRAM RECENTLY.

SOT OF BAUTISTA GOING DOWN A SET OF STAIRS

MS BAUTISTA BEWAILS THE LACK OF GOVERNMENT SUPPORT FOR SPECIAL EDUCATION.

SOT: BAUTISTA SPECIAL EDUCATION HAS TAKEN SUCH A, UH, YOU KNOW, HAS TAKEN A BACKSEAT IN TERMS OF FUNDING AND IN TERMS OF RESOURCES MADE AVAILABLE FOR THEM AND IF WE CAN PROVIDE MORE TEACHERS AND MORE ACCESS AND MORE SERVICES FOR OUR SPECIAL POPULATION THEN THAT WILL BE GREAT

SIT OF BAUTISTA WELCOMING A GUEST

IN THE END, SHE SEES THAT COOPERATION WITH THE GOVERNMENT, AS WELL AS THE IMPLEMENTATION OF EXISTING LAWS CAN HELP IMPROVE THE OVERALL SITUATION.

SOT: BAUTISTA I THINK A LOT OF NETWORKING WILL BE GREAT. MAYBE IF WE CAN REALLY IMPLEMENT THE MAGNA CARTA AND THE PROVISIONS OF THE MAGNA CARTA FOR UHM, INDIVIDUAL WITH SEPCIAL NEEDS, I THINK THAT WILL BE A REALLY GREAT STEP. SIT OF REPORTER
