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. The Division of Southern Leyte is a medium-sized Division comprised of 23 Districts and 342 schools within the 19 municipalities of the province. Southern Leyte was one of the most severely affected regions when Typhoon Odette struck the country. In fact, until now, the district is still experiencing difficulties in accessing basic public goods such as electricity. Imagine how experiencing these, on top of the pandemic, have surely affected the children in their community. As they rebuild their homes and their lives, we too would like to do our small part in helping motivate the children to pursue their dreams. Let’s make them smile, in ways we can. One school bag= One happy kid. #Bag-ongPag-asa
