Bai Hanina Sinsuat High School in Kusiong, Datu Odin Sinsuat Students of Bai Hanina Sinsuat High School in Kusiong, Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao, leave their homes as early as 4AM everyday to go to school.

These students, mostly Teduray (an indigenous people’s tribe) have to take a long hike, to and from the school, everyday.

These committed  high school students come from a remote and mountainous area of Barangay Badak and the others came from the coastal area of Barangay Tapian, a distance of 5-8 kilometers away from the school.

Students of Bai Hanina Sinsuat High School in Kusiong, Datu Odin Sinsuat If they have to commute on a jeepney or tricycle, they will spend P100 daily for their fare, which they cannot afford.

They would also have to pay P50 daily for a boat ride which they cannot afford as well.

Let’s help them have access to education easier and faster… let’s give them paddle boats and bikes please.

Kusiong Elementary School KidsAnd Jeff went on to say, “These are the pupils of Kusiong Elementary School… everyday, they have to take a hike because their residence is too far from the school. This is the only elementary school in the area. Children who want to finish elementary should struggle and walk 4 to 7 kilometers daily to reach school. Some ride a bangka whenever available.

“They need our help… bikes and paddle boats will surely make education more accessible to them.”

“We agree,” says the Yellow Boat Foundation. They need 45 boats and 80 bicycles.
