Giving Back. Shaping Futures. Changing Lives.
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.

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 3,500 students attending this year. Today, the Eclaro 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 has recently been 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 $4.5 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.
With Eclaro's Impact Sourcing Program, you have the opportunity to provide an underprivileged Filipino child with an education and a better future.
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:
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.
