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.
School children from the indigenous communities that NVC serves: the Tala-andig tribe in the mountains of Bukidnon; and the Maghat, Bukidnon, and Ituman tribes living in the mountains of Himamalyan, Negros Island. These kids have very limited access to basic school supplies. They also frequently go hungry and are now part of NVC’s Mingo Meals nutrition program. We have identified close to 2,000 children who need this type of assistance.
