Education

Due to unemployment, a lot of parents have to choose between feeding the family or buying school supplies and uniform for their children for them to be able to go to school. Although primary and secondary education is free in government run schools, parents still have to find money to buy school supplies for their children. This is also one of the reasons why children do not go to school.

Jose Rizal (Philippines National Hero) once said that “The youth is the hope of the nation” and we believe that in order for the next generation to be well equipped to “conquer the world”, they have to have not just a proper education but also the opportunity to even go to school and to give them hope that there is a future for them.

Our Goal

The goal is only short term because we believe that by that time the parents will start profiting from their banana plants and be self-sufficient and self-reliant but we will continue to support the family if need be.
