48The Department of Education rolled out Kariton Klasrum Project on January 27, 2015 held in Bulwagan ng Karunungan, DepEd Complex, Meralco Avenue, Pasig City. In partnership with The Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Liga ng mga Barangay sa Pilipinas and the Dynamic Team Company, kariton klasrums will be deployed in Metro Manila, Cavite and Tacloban City for the benefit of street children and other out-of-school youth.
Kariton Klasrum is a project of DTC and 2009 CNN Hero of the Year Efren Penaflorida, which aims to reach the children at risk on the streets and provide them with basic education through mobile (pushcarts or kariton) classrooms.

The replication of the project is part of DepEd’s “Last Mile Efforts” to address the needs of hard-to-reach learners and out-of-school children and youth (OSCYs). The Kariton Klasrum project aims to provide more children at risk on the streets, OSCYs, and school drop-outs with access to basic education through the Alternative Learning System (ALS), Alternative Delivery Modes (ADM), and Modified In-School, Off-School Approach (MISOSA) programs of DepEd.
