ChildFund Philippines and CHILDInitiative have joined forces to begin a three-year project in Bacolod City to promote equitable learning for children with disabilities. Project ACHIEVE (Advancement of Children's Inclusive Education through Virtual Engagement), a collaboration between ChildFund Australia, Generations Foundation, DepEd Region VI, and local school partners, aims to help children with disabilities grow into young adults who can bring lasting change to their communities.

Project ACHIEVE exemplifies ChildFund Philippines' aim to collaborate with partner organizations, government agencies, businesses, and individuals to help build a safe environment for children.

“Project ACHIEVE is another innovative solution that is aimed at creating a positive impact for children who need assistance,” said Dong WaƱa, ChildFund Philippines Program and Sponsorship Director. “This is aligned with our commitment to make inclusive, relevant, and equitable education accessible to children, especially those with disabilities."


The creation of digital learning modules using Moodle software is one of the highlights of Project ACHIEVE. Moodle is an open-source online learning platform with an interactive digital learning management system that allows professors to create online courses, offer tasks, and track students' progress. It also allows teachers to engage with students and encourages students to communicate with one another through forums and conversations. The courses produced under Project ACHIEVE will enhance and enrich the hybrid learning experience of children with hearing and visual impairments using Moodle as the platform.

“ChildFund Philippines has been exploring ways to incorporate digital program delivery into its programs and Project ACHIEVE’s modules for learners with disabilities are among its first demonstrations,” said ChildFund Philippines Education Specialist Marlene Floresca. “We want to carefully study how this can support and improve the learning experience of school children. Eventually, we aim to reach more children while ensuring that the intervention will remain relevant and responsive to their needs.”
Floresca added that the modules through the Moodle app were intentionally designed to accommodate the learning needs of hearing and visually impaired children. “It is intended to be a supplemental learning delivery mode that should be easily navigated by children with disabilities and their parents/ caregivers. It shall complement self-learning modules,” she shared.
