Romblon-main

Welcome to Romblon Funds for Little Kids! Help us help the marginalized and boatless fishermen of Romblon so that their kids can go, stay and finish their education. We have raised 15 of the 100 yellow fishing boats. Your help will go in long way in breaking the cycle of poverty! According to Che Ingles, “Romblon is one province with several islands and municipalities Our YBH recipients are all from different barangays in the municipality of STA. MARIA in Tablas Island, Romblon. I’ve actually produced two videos already for Romblon, And for this set of videos, the stories focused more on the points of view of the mothers, unlike in the Bagac videos. The videos were all shot in Sta. Maria.”

Here are the first 15 yellow fishing boats for YBH Adopt-A-Fisherman program. Giving them livelihood so that their kids can go to and finish school:

To see videos of our Yellow Boat family on Romblon (all videos by Che Ingles):

Rosela’s daughter, Pearl, is paraplegic and is unable to walk.

Even though they are so poor they could not afford to pay for transport service to bring Pearl to and from school, Rosela pushes her wheelchair for over three kilometres each day to make sure Pearl gets formal education.

Rosella’s husband is a fisherman, but he does not have his own boat. With YOUR HELP, the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation could provide a fishing boat for Rosela’s family–and hopefully, a shot at a better future for Pearl and her siblings.

This is the story of Maricel Roleda and her son, Rocky.

I am sharing this with you so you can help the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation raise funds to give boats for families like the Roledas.

Nanay Maricel’s main source of income is making and selling walis tingting. Rocky, on the other hand, uses flattened PVC tubes as flippers/fins so he can go bowfishing and be able to afford formal education for his younger siblings.

It is not always true that poor people are poor because they are lazy. There are many like Maricel and Rocky who just need to be given a breath of hope–a boat, perhaps–so they can finally have a shot at a good future.
