NVC’S EDUCATION PROJECTS ENHANCE THE QUALITY OF SCHOOLING FOR CHILDREN OF THE POOR. THESE RANGE FROM PROVISION OF SCHOOL SUPPLIES, INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS, AND TEACHERS TRAINING AND SUPPORT.
For some children in remote parts of the Philippines, supplies as simple as a pencil or a piece of paper can’t be taken for granted. It’s common for poor schoolchildren to break a pencil into two or three pieces to be shared with others, and to use this until there’s nothing left to write with.
Donors can sponsor a LoveBag that will provide a student with all the supplies he or she needs for an entire school year.
Boost your LoveBag donation with a pair of rubber slippers, for bare feet that climb hills and plunge into river waters to get to school.

Cost of a LoveBag
Each school bag you sponsor consists of school supplies that have been identified by teachers as essentials for one elementary school year. The cost also includes transportation to the student’s remote location.

We partner with different donors and institutions to build much-needed classrooms and then monitor their maintenance after turnover. We also conduct teacher training as needed.
To help address the lack of books in public school libraries, our volunteers solicit, sort, and distribute used books from private schools, families and individuals.
