ChildFund Philippines and CHILDInitiative are working together to start a three-year project in Bacolod City that will help children with disabilities learn relatively. Project ACHIEVE (Advancement of Children’s Inclusive Education through Virtual Engagement), a collaboration between ChildFund Australia, Generations Foundation, DepEd Region VI, and local school partners, aims to help children with disabilities grow into young adults who can make a long-term difference in their communities.
ChildFund Philippines’ goal of collaborating with partner organizations, government agencies, corporations, and individuals to help develop a secure environment for children is exemplified by Project ACHIEVE.
“Project ACHIEVE is another innovative solution that is aimed at creating a positive impact for children who need assistance,” said Dong Waña, ChildFund Philippines Program and Sponsorship Director. “This is aligned with our commitment to make inclusive, relevant, and equitable education accessible to children, especially those with disabilities.”
One of the features of Project ACHIEVE is the development of digital learning modules utilizing Moodle software. Moodle is a free and open-source online learning platform with an interactive digital learning management system that allows professors to create online courses, assign tasks, and track students’ progress. It also allows teachers to interact with students and encourages students to speak with one another via forums and discussions. The Project ACHIEVE courses will improve and expand the hybrid learning experience of children with hearing and visual impairments by utilizing Moodle as the platform.
