Thank you CGTN #TheInspirers #TheLink correspondent Barnaby Lo and cameraman Robert Malicsi for featuring our YBH/ALS BANGKARUNUNGAN PROGRAM. May it inspire more people worldwide to “ROCK THE BOAT” and make a difference.

One of our dreams and treasured project in our Isla Lipa Yellow Boat Community at Caramoan is to open a typhoon-resilient elementary school and to construct a Community Learning Center for ALS which can double as a vocational training center, ALS testing/evaluation center and an evacuation center for the kids in case of super typhoons.

Last August 9, 2018, our dreams finally become a reality as we took the leap of faith. YELLOW SCHOOL OF HOPE held it’s groundbreaking ceremony.

Please help us realize our dream!

BACKGROUNDER:

What started out as a dream came into fruition when YBH/ALS Bangkarunungan Boat named SANTA 16 was turnovered to the community led by Windel Alvarez. Our dream was simple. Bring education to the doorsteps of the learners!

As we paddle along, our dream got bigger! We wanted to give the same opportunity to the other 15 sitios and barangays in Caramoan Peninsula, Camarines Sur.

We paddled and prayed harder! Our donors responded. BKP California (Carolina Clemente Leap), NGP (NGP Integrated Marketing Communications), Filinvest International/FRICH Filinvestor (Tet Cudiamat Filinvest International (OFFICIAL) FRICH Mentor Republika ng Filinvestor) and BEAGIVER/CONVERGYS (Josh Mahinay BEAGIVER BEAGIVER DREAMS PROJECT Convergys) BANGKARUNUNGAN BOATS came along; thereby completing all the 5 motorized needed. Each boat comes with 2 foldable tents, whiteboard, lifevest, Banig mats, tackle boxes, school supplies, teaching aids and the magic ingredient – Passionate ALS teachers and hope paddlers!

All was set, but we want to make sure we give quality education to all communities all the time! We prayed again and search wider. We know it is a problem that technology can solve! @OSRI responded through Sidhant Gupta with the donation of tablets for 1 community. But we need not just the hardware but the software as well. In an accidental meeting, our co-founder found himself with Smart Communications, Inc. Mon Isberto and found out about the Smart’s School In A Bag program! Now quality education is now possible all the time in all 16 sitios and communities. Thank you Smart and UST HS Batch 1969!

Meanwhile, the learners at our first community in Sitio Lipata got so inspired that they built their own school using branches and nipa found in the community. YBH needed to reciprocate and DEPED agreed. Stars aligned and we will soon be building our first 2 classroom typhoon-resistant Yellow School of Hope in Camarines Sur.

It will be a multi-functional building – an ALS Learning Center, Livelihood Training Center, ALS Evaluation and Equivalency Testing Center and an Evacuation Center for the kids!

This 2.34M dream project got a kickstart with an initial US$10,000.00 donation from our YBH Ambassador of Hope and Miss Teen International 2017 Carly Peeters and a P200,000.00 pesos donation from a generous hope paddler. We have broke ground and need your support to make this a reality.

PLEASE HELP US REALIZE OUR DREAM AND FULFILL OUR COMMITMENT IN ENSURING THAT NO FILIPINO LEARNERS WILL BE LEFT BEHIND!

Remember every bit counts in changing the world of a child! #HopeSails
