Last Friday we told you about the Give a dollar back to school drive in which thirty school bags were handed to students from Saint Peter’s Anglican School. This morning coordinators of this initiative were at Solomon’s SDA Primary where they issued out an additional twenty-five school bags. Teodoro Chan is one of the organizers and told us about their project.
“The initiative is just giving something back to the community so we don’t really expect nothing in return just blessing right and just basically we just see it for the need of education for kids who really need it. We’ve been increasing with the help of the community and the people who donates whatever they feel in the can. Once God spear life we are going to continue doing it and take it as much as big as we can. We’re planning to see if we can turn it into a charity fund organization.”
The project was started in 2012 and already, Chan says they have reached out to at least one hundred students. They target children from different schools each year to widen their reach. Chan adds that they are hoping to spread out into the villages in the years to come.
