CF Event: Outreach Program to a School in Cebu, The Philippines

by Danna Joyce Chavez on 19th October, 2015 at 1:35 PM CEST

I was given a great opportunity be Challenge:Future when I was chosen as the recipient of the $100 earlier this year. My project was an outreach program to a school in Cebu, Philippines where we will give school supplies to the less fortunate students of an Elementary School in Ginatilan.

With my team HHWW (Helping Hands While Working) this project became reality. We have contacted the captain of this small village and asked permission to conduct our activity. Much to our surprise, this will be the first of its kind in their elementary school and we became more excited. With the $100 and some amount from our good friends we were able to buy 100 bags and school supplies (pencils, notebooks). We also had some amount left for some snacks (pancit and juice).

We left at around 3am for a 4-hour ride to the mountains of Ginatilan, Cebu, Philippines. We never thought we would have to climb hills and cross a small river to get to the school. It was such a challenge and we get to experience what each student experiences everyday they go to school. It was very humbling.

We started the program in the afternoon where we also had some storytelling and fun games. We distributed the bags and supplies per grade level and we were to happy to see each child with a big smile on his/her face.  I and my team, was so happy to have shared our blessings to these kids.

I would like to thank Challenge:Future for this opportunity, my team HHWW (Donna, Matet and Joyce) and our friends and families who have supported this cause. We are looking forward to more outreaches like this in the future.
