The Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation, formerly referred to as the The Philippine Funds for Little Kids, started as a national movement to help children who used to swim to school in the mangrove village of Layag-Layag, Brgy. Talon-Talon, Zamboanga City. The idea behind it is to pool our own individual small funds to help these children get to school safe and dry. We are more popularly known as the Yellow Boat Project.
Initially, we thought we would just provide yellow school boats, but by now we’ve moved on to helping support them through provision of other school supplies, medical/dental missions to their communities, scholarships, and even through the implementation of various livelihood programs.
Our main programs today have shifted from just boat building to the building of structures that will support school children who need to traverse long distances and perilous paths to get to school. We are also building classrooms, schools, dormitories, bridges, and other forms of structures that will ensure every child gets to school safe, dry and sound.
