National Literacy Award

We are lucky indeed that our City Government was one of five finalists for the search on National Literacy Award (NLA) conferred by the Literacy Coordinating Council. This program is in coordination with the Department of Education through its Literacy Coordinating Council (LCC). The NLA, held every two years, is a major activity of LCC to recognize individuals, institutions, and local government units with outstanding literacy programs in their communities.

It is also in line with the United Nations’ Literacy Decade’s goal of reducing adult illiteracy rate by 50 percent by 2015. The NLA aims to make literacy universal in the country by creating public awareness and encouraging the development and replication of innovative, creative, and indigenous literacy programs in the community.

As of this writing, we still have no idea on our ranking as we just recently presented to the validating team our current programs and projects about Literacy-related endeavors.The following documentation is related to our ICT programs and projects led by my department, the MISO (Management Information Services Office).

This is another great things that happened to my career three days ago. A nerve breaking task that adds up a bit of adrenaline to present in front of my fellow managers and Chief-Executive. A fruitful sign of professional fulfillment with a sense of accomplishment.
