Distribution of 200 school bags in Espoir School of Life, Surigao del Norte


Good Deeds Day 2022 – Hands On Siargao in cooperation with our partner beneficiary Espoir School of Life (ESL), distributed 200 school bags yesterday to their students and children in the community extension in Sitio Lia-onan, Siargao. 

 “.. these materials spark joy and hope to us. Knowing that during a crisis, we are remembered. All these supplementary materials will surely give protection and comfort to our students.” 

– Teacher Shelly Mae Almirante, Grade 4 teacher 

The kits will not only help aid in education but will also help restore a sense of normalcy after Typhoon Odette.

In a span of two weeks, a total of 152 volunteers produced 200 school bags together with 75 number beads, 30 sets of flashcards, coloring books illustrated by volunteers, and educational materials donated by our generous donors. 

Above all that, we are forever thankful to Hands On Siargao’s bighearted donors and sponsors: ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Far Eastern University, Springmaid, Tams Bookstore, Trans-Asia Shipping Lines, Udenna Foundation, Vibal, and Worklink Services, Incorporated.
