Hi Adrian,

I am very impressed with the work SB! has been doing. Hopefully the organization grows even more so that it can reach more kids. In the Philippines, ALS aims to serve individuals who are past the ideal school-going age. However, children of school age are sometimes admitted into the program for very special reasons. For example, in areas where there is no accessible formal school (due to many reasons: distance, culture, etc) and a lot of adult learners, parents often bring their children during ALS learning sessions. Another example is when an individual is at least two years overage for his or her ideal grade level. Kids in this situation are often uncomfortable attending regular classes so they turn to ALS. The fact that ALS can come in and address special cases where the ideal situation does not happen should be deeply understood and widely appreciated, in my opinion.
