UNESCO Bangkok commissioned SEAMEO INNOTECH to carry out the Case Studies on EFA Promising Practices. SEAMEO INNOTECH documented the Kariton Classroom as a promising practice concerning Education For All. The Kariton Klasrum (KK) Program was first implemented by the Dynamic Teen Company (DTC) in Cavite City, a non-government organization to help street children to enter or re-enter formal schooling. This program provides alternative education, health care, and feeding activities to these children in the hope that these children will be encouraged to go back to school. This program garnered international recognition and is now being replicated in other parts of the country.
The Center reviewed related literature and studies of kariton klasrums, visited and interviewed DTC members, teachers, former KK learners, local officials and stakeholders of KK in Metro Manila, Cavite City, and Bacolod City.
The project has been completed and the country case study report will be published by UNESCO as part of the Case Studies on EFA Promising Practices in the Asia-Pacific Region.
