I learned about this community upon the recommendation of Fr. Larry Lorenzo who is doing an amazing mission in Sarangani Province. Datal, is a remote and mountainous barangay in the municipality of Alabel. It is home of the lumads or indigenous people, particularly the B’laan and the Taga-Kaulo tribes. From Alabel to Datal, it takes more than 2 hours to travel via motorcycle. Located in this far flung village is Datal Anggas Integrated School with about a hundred learners who are from poor families. I am hoping that through this bag drive, we will be able to reach out to them and provide school bags with raincoats. I am sure that they will be so grateful for the help that we can provide them. If you wish to be part of this initiative, you may purchase a bag to support one school kid from Datal. Thank you in advance!
