2 ND GRANT IN A ROW: HOLY CHILD AND USAID PARTNERED AGAIN TO PROVIDE

OUT-OF-SCHOOL YOUTH WITH EDUCATION, EMPLOYMENT, AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP


DAVAO CITY – HOLY CHILD and the United States Agency for International

Development (USAID) partnered again for another opportunity to the Out-of-School

Youth through Opportunity 2.0 project in providing quality education and competitive

employment for the Alternative Learning System (ALS) completers.


Last May 21, 2021, HOLY CHILD College of Davao was awarded a grant for their first

project from the Education Development Center (EDC) through the USAID Opportunity

2.0 program which they provided, discovered and developed the technical skills of the

Out-of-School Youth through the different pieces of training such as Animation NCII and

Computer Systems Servicing NCII in preparation for their continuing education and

competitive employment here in local or even abroad.



With this success of its first project, last January 20, 2022, HOLY CHILD College of

Davao succeeded in its second project from the Education Development Center (EDC).

This another opportunity coming from the United States Agency for International

Development (USAID) and Education Development Center (EDC) through the USAID

Opportunity 2.0 program is to help the Alternative Learning System (ALS) completers in

aligning their future jobs, continuing learning, or creating businesses to help sustain the

needs of their families. In this project, HOLY CHILD College of Davao will open this

opportunity to the 125 Out-of-School Youth (OSY) from the selected barangays and

youth organizations here in Davao City.


In addition, out of 21 organizations and institutions, only 10 got passed for all the

phases of their application process.




This successful project will be led by Jacques Axid Rosello as the project manager,

Jeanie Delos Arcos, DIT as the monitoring and evaluation officer, and with the help and

assistance of Ma. Chrystella Suzette I. Velasco, Vice President for Academics and

External Affairs of the HOLY CHILD College of Davao. Together with the team are the

lead instructors which are Geneva Buscabus, LPT, Edward Gapoy, LPT, Armadet

Generosa, and Ronald Larita.
