ALS Graduates 

ALS (Alternative Learning System) is a Philippine Department of Education program for the Filipino Out-of-School Youth and adults. Most of the receipients are learners living below the poverty line, predominantly coming from depressed, disadvantaged, undeserved communities. Several Badjaos were recepient of this program and have benefited from it. Lots of Badjao children, youth and adults graduated from this program and provide a better chance for them in the society.

Preaching the Badjaos Through Community Development 

Preaching to the Badjaos has not been easy, their culture is different, their language is different and their way of living is different. I came to the island of Malitam last 1999 with my wife armed only with the Bible and the passion for the lost. The Lord has given us strategies on winning their hearts to God. The pictures below speaks for themselves of how great God has done and how He changed the lives of the Badjao people living in Malitam island.
