I used to be frustrated on what was happening, thinking that I may never see an improvement in my immediate community during my lifetime. Until I met the yellow boat team and found out through them that I have to involve myself hands on to come up with the change that I have been dreaming of all these years.

I’m inspired because YBH helps battle poverty by giving kids more access to school through yellow school buses, working with the kids' families and communities to empower and promote sustainability and even builds new schools where the current ones are congested with Yellow Boat kids.

Josh Mahinay

Advocate / Speaker for Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation

Working with YBH in promoting the culture of generosity gave me the privilege to serve selflessly, giving more and taking less. Indeed, it is true that when we care, hope becomes our universal language and dreams cease to become the monopoly of the few. Every act of kindness transforms a heart. And every time we die to ourselves in our giving, a seed of goodness blossoms in the heart of others.

Every child who does not receive the right to access education means an immeasurable depth of potential and vast ocean of possibilities will sink and remain hidden in each girl and boy. Yellow Boat of Hope greatly allows us to contribute in letting education sail in every child.

Meryl Grace Agudelo

Lead Implementor Zamboanga del Sur Funds for Little Kids

The concept of changing the world can feel overwhelming. But the world we live in is made up of tiny communities, families, and people. And the only way to revolutionize change is to harness the innate power of these individual communities. We do not need to reinvent the wheel: small incremental changes in education, enterprise, and health, often implemented at the most local level, make the real difference.

Meryl Grace Agudelo, I CAN make a difference

Co-Lead Implementor Cebu Funds For Little Kids & YBH Week Without Walls

When I moved out from a service addict institution (seriously, there is such thing), I felt unproductive and idle. For how many months, there is a sense of struggle to help and serve and I don’t know why. Humbly doing it my own way but it just doesn't make sense and pointless. Thanks YBHF for the inspiration and the opportunity. The “URGE TO HELP” is back.

There's something with Yellow Boat that inspires. The moment you enter Layag-Layag, the fleet of brightly yellow painted boats brings you a retreat from the mundane. It brings you to a journey of what makes a community thrive - love, hope, humility. Though fleeting, I am so glad to be able to bring back home this experience in an Aeta community in Tarlac.

The pursuit of the well-being of other people, especially the most needy amongst us, is more worthwhile and fulfilling than the pursuit of personal glory. The latter is like chasing after the winds, the former is for eternity which is what Yellow Boat has been doing: giving hope for posterity. Simply inspiring!

Yellow Boat inspired me to help people in need, specially the fishermen who were devastated by the typhoon YOLANDA. It helped me realize that nothing is impossible when kind-hearted people band together with a single purpose. The generous contribution of donors through the YELLOW BOAT FOUNDATION helped my community rise again after the typhoon with their brand new yellow boats. With renewed hope and a fresh start, their lives will definitely be better than before

As a teacher in a special science high school, who has also visited schools in far flung areas in my province, I have seen the huge gap in terms of access to basic education between my students and those in the remote areas. Through the Yellow Boat of Hope I see an opportunity to help improve access to quality basic education for the kids who need to walk miles and to cross rivers just to get to school.

When Super Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda struck my hometown, there must be a reason why God spared me and my family. I reminded myself we are survivors not victims. When the opportunity to help the fishermen who lost their boats was offered to me by Yellow Boat of Hope, I said yes immediately. In doing so, it has helped me recover as much as it did to the fishermen and their family. Hope is infectious!

Lead Implementor, Daanbantayan Yellow Boat Community

I feel blessed being a part of YBH because in a little way that I do, I can help the less fortunate, most especially the children who want to go to school but their parents can't afford to send them in school. Being one of the volunteers of the YBH team, it really touches my heart and whole being, because when I’m still young and still in school, I dream to be what I am right now. Luckily, I found people who were eager to help those who are in need, like the YBH family.
