Instead of going to school, children of very poor families need to earn a living so they may have food on the table. Parents oblige them to beg, sell sampaquita flowers, or scavenge at the dumpsites.Responding to their plight, Ina nin Bikol Foundation, in partnership with the Philosophy Department of the Ateneo de Naga University, embarks on a new program: the Send-A-Child-to-School Program. The first adopted community is Balatas dumpsite with close to 100 families.
Your $100 donation will guarantee that a child can attend school for one academic year. Funds will shoulder school uniforms, shoes, school supplies and monetary incentives for the family whose child goes to school regularly.
On special occassions, you will hear from the child you support. We will ensure that he or she sends you letters. When the school year ends, you will get a copy of their report and class cards.
