Keep Children In School In Philippines
Organized by: Hans Bellon
We are a small group of foreigners in Dalaguete Cebu who donate money every month to local schools and till now we bought food from it. Every month another Barangay (area), every month another school. Beginning of June school starts again. The poor families have no money to buy the children books. The more money we can raise, the more children we can reach.Education is the most important part in your life to make something out of it and become independent.We like to ask to donate money to buy schoolbooks for grade 1 to 6, they are expensive and under control of DEPED. If we can, we like to guide students through their college as well.1 specific case. I was last week at a funeral of a man of 61. His youngest son cried next to his coffin. They talked hours about his education and made plans how to fund but now his father is death. The boy of 12, ended with the highest scores, asked his father at the tomb, 'how about my education now dad?' That was very hard to watch for me.
