Schools in the Philippines are getting ready to open on October 5, 2020. But with the pandemic still in high gear, remote learning is the option recommended by the Department of Education (DepEd). Many schools do not have the basic resources to meet their students’ remote learning needs to thrive academically. Pencils, erasers, paper, notebooks, folders are a few examples of much needed items critical to learning. The parents are barely able to put food on the table, let alone provide the educational supplies needed by their children. Without the necessary school supplies, these children, who have so much potential, will fall behind academically.
Basic school supplies needed:
· Pencils and pens
· Reams or boxes of paper
· Pencil sharpeners
· Crayons and colored pencils
· Plastic file folders
Bagong Kulturang Pinoy, Inc., as part of its literacy mission, is dedicated to helping our poverty-stricken sponsored schools provide a quality remote educational experience to their students. We are responding by facilitating the donations of school supplies to these underprivileged schools who have been recipients of our children’s book donation program. Many of these schools have already made great strides in improving their children’s reading levels. By helping provide school supplies for the students, we hope to continue the literacy momentum that BKP has already started.
But, we are only able to do this through generous donations that provide the finances to not only purchase school supplies but also pay the cost of shipping. Thanks to caring people like you, these children will have the tools they need to succeed during these challenging pandemic times.
Thank you for your interest in making a donation. Together we can make a difference.
Please consider these amounts:
· $25: Buys 180 pencils. Pencils are the most needed items for students.
· $35: Pays shipping for one small balikbayan box full of school supplies to a remote school.
· $50: Buys school supplies for 2 students for an entire school year.
· $200: Buys 6 months of school supplies for one grade level
