MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) on Thursday said that it has trained around 240 students from the Cebu Normal University for its Tara, Basa! tutoring program in Mandaue City. DSWD Assistant Secretary Irene Dumlao said the program will call on college students to be more involved in nation-building. “Through the Tara, Basa! program, we are confident that college students will be more equipped and inspired to participate in nation-building because the program empowers the youth and provides an avenue for them to be compassionate and develop a sense of responsibility,” Dumlao said.

The reading tutors who were trained on April 1 were taught on assessing the reading needs of the children that they will teach, as well as how to monitor their reading progress.

On March 8, the DSWD launched the Tara, Basa program in Cebu City.


The agency likewise said that the program will be launched in April at the provinces of Quezon Province, Samar and  General Santos City.

The Tara, Basa! Program employs college students as reading tutors for elementary students who have difficulties reading or cannot read.
