Did you know that in the Philippines, over 23 million students go to public schools? That’s about 84.5% of the total student population. Unfortunately, many of these schools have to deal with major problems such as lack of classrooms and teachers. Some of them even lack learning supplies and updated books. Take this lovely kid, for example:
More than 3.8 million Filipino youth are out-of-school, mostly because of poverty. Yet, this little kid is doing everything to learn, even if it means using a makeshift pen. Inspiring but heartbreaking at the same time.
We can't think of a better way to celebrate our birthdays than to take action. In our own little way, we’d like to be able to give inspiration to these students by donating basic start-up school supplies which will be distributed to students at Sinag Tala Elementary School in Quezon City, Philippines when they start school in June.
We can give to more kids with your support. We are extending this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these children to you. A small amount could go a long way. If you choose to:
- Give AUD20.00 (around US$14), you'll be sponsoring two school children.
- Give AUD50.00 (around US$35), you'll be sponsoring five school children.
- Give AUD100.00 (around US$70), you'll be sponsoring ten school children.
Feel free to give as much as you want! Your generosity will give these students the bright future they deserve.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you in advance for your kind donation.
