Bayanihan para sa Bohol

Bayanihan para sa Bohol was a success!

On March 13, our team started unloading and preparing the donations at Dr. Cecilio Putong National High School (DCPNHS). The next day, we distributed the relief packs to the parents and students. We thank the teachers and staff of DCPNHS for the support and warm welcome!

For the students, we were able to give out a total of 500 school bags, each with school essentials set, COVID-19 essentials kit, blankets, towels, sleeping mats, and Litclub-on-the-go activity packet. It also included Letters of Hope from our PEARLS Scholars.

We also turned over 50 solar lamps, 3 printers, 2 sets of printer ink, 1 whiteboard, 6 boxes of whiteboard marker, 1 projector, 1 projector screen, 50 pcs. of (10L) Bottled Water, and 50 reams of bond paper for the teachers. One of the teachers told us that they are very grateful for the donations because it augments their teaching needs and addresses financial and budget constraints.

Then on March 15, our team was warmly welcomed by the faculty and staff of Tagbilaran City Central Elementary School (TCCES)!

500 elementary pupils received toys and gifts, face masks, snack packs, towels, and Letters of Hope from our PEARLS Scholars. Aside from the relief packs for the students, we also provided supplies and equipment for the teachers of TCCES. They received 50 solar lamps, 2 printers, 2 sets of printer ink, 50 reams of bond paper, 1 whiteboards, 6 boxes of whiteboard markers, 1 projector, 1 projector screen, and 50 pcs. of (10L) bottled water.

We also donated 10 buckets of wall paint, paint rollers, and brushes to TCCES, and our team helped out with painting the school facilities.

One of the students, Yohanna, said that, “all of the donations will be a great help in rebuilding our school and inspire the learners to pursue their dreams despite numerous challenges.”

It was indeed a great way to end our Bayanihan para sa Bohol!
