USAID's EQuALLS Project is being implemented under the technical leadership of the Education Development Center (EDC), a US-based non-profit organization, in coordination with the Philippine Department of Education, the Department of Education of the ARMM, and the Technical Education and Livelihood Skills Development Authority.
The project has three lead implementing partners with local and international expertise in education and youth development.
- Save the Children is an international organization that works to create lasting, positive change in the lives of disadvantaged children and adolescents. It is working in EQuALLS sites in Region 9 and parts of Sulu and North Cotabato.
- Synergeia Foundation is a Philippine-based coalition of individuals, institutions, and organizations that are working together to improve the quality of basic education in the Philippines. It works in the ARMM.
- The Education and Livelihood Skills Alliance (ELSA) is a partnership of highly respected international and Philippine NGOs (International Youth Foundation, Ayala Foundation, Consuelo Foundation, Philippine Business for Social Progress, and Petron Foundation) that are working together to create and expand school- and community-based learning and employment in the Philippines. It works in Region 12, Basilan, and Tawi-Tawi.
The EQuALLS Project has also forged public-private partnerships under USAID's Global Development Alliance model with a number of leading local and international entities. We work with Petron Foundation to construct classrooms; with the US-based Brother's Brother Foundation, one of the world's largest private book donors, for book donations; with Microsoft Philippines under Microsoft's Partners in Learning Program for training of teachers and school administrators for computer literacy; and with National Book Store Foundation, affiliated with the Philippines' largest chain of bookstores, to provide dictionaries and thesauri to all of our schools.
