Bag-ong Pag-asa is a new campaign that we initiated this year to raise school bags for children affected by Typhoon Odette. When the typhoon hit the Visayan region last December 2021, many children were not able to enjoy the Christmas season because their families had to build their toppled shelter from the ground. Thus, as a social enterprise supporting advocacies for children’s welfare, we thought of simple ways to help reignite hope in their hearts. This is how we came up with the idea of initiating a bag drive campaign, to help remind the kids to continue dreaming and pursuing their right to education.
Now let us introduce you to one of our adopted schools. Caohagan Elementary School is a second home to the 100 students of Caohagan Island. Isolated from the rest of the city, the families of the beautiful island have found livelihood in fishing and tourism. However due to the pandemic many families had to find other means to survive and when the typhoon hit the island, the situation got even worse with their shelters brought down to the ground by heavy rains and strong winds.
Now that the community is slowly pulling their lives together, we too, would like to do our part in giving hope to kids after a traumatic event in their lives. Let’s make them smile, in ways we can. One school bag= One happy kid. #Bag-ongPag-asa
