Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) companies, like AEGIS People Support and Qualfon, joins the cause of reinforcing and improving the English communication skills of the elementary and high school students in Cebu’s public schools.

This cause, “Better English, Better Future” was piloted by Qualfon Philippines Inc., last January 2011 with barangay Apas-Cebu City as the program’s host community.

Back then, forty-eight Qualfon agent-volunteers spent conducted story-telling sessions to the grade 1 pupils of Camp Lapu-Lapu Elementary School and tutorials for the fourth year classes of Apas National High School.

The program addresses the decline in the communication skills of new graduates, especially from public schools.

Through alternative, informal home-style teaching and coaching on practical, conversational English, students can become more confident in speaking the language.

The students are also taught on how to apply themselves self-sufficiently to develop vocabulary, improve grammar, and practice universal diction and pronunciation.

Last February 18 of 2012, Aegis People Support, another business process outsourcing company, shared its agents’ expertise to their beneficiaries, the students of Lahug Elementary School with storytelling and classroom management sessions.

The “Better English, Better Future” program was conceptualized by Vicsal Foundation Inc., the corporate foundation of Metro Gaisano chain of stores. The foundation aims to sustain this project with the help of BPOs, groups and individuals.

For interested volunteers, please contact the Vicsal Foundation secretariat at 236-8390 local 221, look for Mars Cabildo-Rubica or Joy Ong.
