The ECLARO Academy Story

There are nearly 4 million out-of-school youth in the Philippines, with half from families whose income falls within the bottom 30% of the population based on per capita income. Research indicates that education has a significant impact on individual earnings and economic opportunity.

  • If all students in low-income countries left school with basic reading skills, more than 170 million people could be lifted out of poverty
  • Each year of schooling increases a person’s lifetime earnings by 10%
  • Each dollar invested in an additional year of schooling generates earnings and health benefits of $10 in low-income countries
  • If education in much of the world fails to keep up with the demands required of future workers, there will be major shortages of workers in both developing and developed economies, and a surplus of workers with poor skills

Beginning with a group of 18 technical-vocational scholars in 2013, the ECLARO Academy has grown into a full-fledged academic institution with more than 4,300 students attending this year. Today, the ECLARI Academy offers pre-school, grade school and high school education and college degrees with majors including Computer Science, Communications and Criminology. All ECLARO Academy course offerings are recognized and accredited by the Department of Education (DepEd), Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA), and the Commission on Higher Education. In addition, ECLARO Academy was accredited as a certified training partner of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Academy, offering a curriculum designed to help students develop technical expertise in cloud computing, preparing them for AWS certification.

We offer subsidies to employees and their families to attend ECLARO Academy and offer continuing education programs to ECLARO employees. In addition, we work with the school to hire ECLARO Academy graduates as employees. With premium educators and facilities, and an average student to faculty ratio of 25:1, we are proud to offer a quality education and give back to the Filipino community in a very meaningful way.

We’ve also developed an Impact Sourcing Program, which allows our clients to sponsor scholarships for underprivileged students to attend ECLARO Academy at no cost. Together, we've provided more than $5 million in scholarships to underprivileged children.  In line with our objective to increase opportunities for disadvantaged populations, the number of scholarships offered continues to grow each year.

Our achievements in Impact Sourcing have been recognized by the IAOP (International Association of Outsourcing Professionals). ECLARO was the proud recipient of the 2020 Global Impact Sourcing Award.

Impact Sourcing - Opportunities for ECLARO Clients
Giving Back. Shaping Futures. Changing Lives.

With ECLARO's Impact Sourcing Program, you have the opportunity to provide an underprivileged Filipino child with an education and a better future. View our ECLARO Impact Sourcing One-Sheet here.

It's as simple as starting with a pilot program with ECLARO. By committing to hire five ECLARO resources for a minimum of 1 year, you can sponsor a scholarship to ECLARO Academy on behalf of your company for one of the following: 

  • Nine years of grammar school (Grades Kindergarten through 8th)
  • Four years of high school (Grades 9-12)
  • Four years of college

Should you choose to sponsor scholarships, you'll get updates and progress reports on the students you sponsor.  If you make a trip to the Philippines, ECLARO will host a celebration luncheon for your company representatives, your scholars, and their families.

With nearly 4 million out-of-school youth in the Philippines, the ECLARO Impact Sourcing program provides a terrific opportunity to help those in need.  Your participation will help underprivileged youth reap the many benefits of an education and equip them with the knowledge they need to have a brighter future.
