School starts on June 3, 2013, is your school ready?
I recently went to Negros to witness the turnover of a project we, the NGO I work for, did for a public school elementary that is very dear to our organization. We are very pleased to see its completion in time for the opening of classes on June 3, and felt very encouraged to see how such small project can bring so much joy to so many people.
National Schools Maintenance Week, otherwise known as "Brigada Eskwela", is a week long school cleanup and maintenance drive that signals the beginning of the school year is here again. It is a voluntary collective effort of teachers and school heads, parents and the local community stakeholders that began last May 20, 2013 for the SY 2013-2014.
There are a lot of things to be done. We do not have to be in government or NGO to help, WE CAN ALL HELP NOW. Visit the nearest public school in your community/ baranggay and assess their needs. You can help either through monetary contribution or in kind. Donation of cleaning materials, maintenance supplies, paint, or even art supplies for the classrooms and teachers are very much welcomed. You can also involve your children / family by asking them to donate used/ old books for the school's library. LITTLE THINGS COUNT. We can do this. Like what Maya always say, kapit-bisig!
