Remote Island Schools Receive Donations

Our recent donation to the Southern Philippines brought this letter from one of the teachers: “Capul is an island with a population of about 10,000 people. They speak Inabaknon, a language unique to the islands and is the 8th rarest dialect in the Philippines. Up to now the only means of transportation in the island are motorcycles. Electricity is thru a local generator that is only available 4:00 pm to 12:00 midnight.

As you can imagine, it is very remote with limited access to funding and support. Through Sa Aklat Sisikat and your (Corazon Roxas Foundation) generosity they received 2 boxes of books. 
I can’t tell you enough how excited and grateful the teachers and students were. It was like they won the lotto. On their behalf, I extend our gratitude.This is just one of many letters of thanks that is meant for all of you who continue to support our work in the Philippines. May you never tire of the work you do. God bless you.”

Our Program manager works tirelessly to ensure that your donations continue to flow to reach villages that are as remote as the Capul Elementary School in Northern Samar,  the R. Malanyaon Elementary School in Bicol, Hilantagaan Elementary 
School (in the remote island of Hilantagaan)CRIBS and Preda Foundations
