Walk of Hope's Real Stories from Tan-awan

in charity •  3 months ago

It's quite humbling to see kids who are wondering what SEA SHELLS are all about as they have NEVER seen them before.

Tan-awan is one of the barangays of Kabankalan City, the second largest city of the Negros Island, an hour away up in the mountains. As it have a functioning high school, according to @flabbergast-art, they don't go down to go to the City anymore. The kids there no longer go to college after high school as next to it is having jobs in the sugarcane plantations. @walkofhope's livelihood training is just an extra income for them. Unless the kids have scholarships for college, only then will they go to Kabankalan City for college.

For all their lives in the mountains, they wouldn't have seen a beach, let alone the sea shells.

These shells were bought last weekend for the funitures/fixtures that our kids are working on for the upcoming bamboo restaurant in Kabankalan City and for the church in Tan-awan. @flabbergast-art as per his intentions decided to leave them under the sun the whole day for the kids to enjoy them.

I must say they all looked cute as they satisfy their curiosity.
