Since 2003, Tanglaw Ng Buhay with its sister foundation, Motortrade Life and Livelihood Assistance Foundation, Inc. (MLALAF) has been conducting the Alternative Learning System (ALS) program in urban poor communities all over Metro Manila. Our ALS program (then called Non Formal Education or NFE) which started with just a few learning centers continued to grow in terms of outreach area, staff and learners, network, partners and churches. More churches, local government leaders and individuals who have seen the impact of the program in their communities availed of our program in other places as they witnessed the impact of ALS to the out-of-school youth and adults (OSYA).

Although the ALS program focuses on the OSYA, the Foundation was well aware of the other pressing needs of the communities and individuals we are serving.

We soon started to offer college scholarship, children’s feeding program, mission outreaches and relief projects. And after several years, the ALS of LALAF continued to respond to the needs of the community. We now realized that ALS is no longer our main program. ALS has introduced LALAF to a wide range of community projects. It has become one component of our strategy in reaching out to the lost, the least and the last of the society.

It is in this context that we are now launching our Leading Individuals for Excellence in Christ (LIFEINC) Program which captures the vision God is now directing us to pursue.
