Successfully distributed 80 paddle boats and 1 motorized bangka to the Ligawasan community, Pagalungan, Maguindanao. Also distributed 700 school bags: 500 bags donated by ARMM (Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, Gov. Mujiv Hataman) and 200 bags from Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation. All bags are full of school supplies.
Balungis High School is one of the 8 recipient schools in Ligawasan community and here is a photo of some of the students in new yellow boats. These students did not have a ride to school before, says Jeff Mendez, Lead Implementor Cotabato Funds for Little Kids, but with these boats, they will be able to go to school fast and hopefully won’t be absent from their classes as much.
The boat distribution was done Sunday, December 7, 2014 along with the PEEP volunteers. ARMM Exec. Sec. Atty. Laisa Alamia was also present and many other school heads.
