NEED HELP! Art Materials and School Supplies Gift Giving for the children of Sitio Nangalid

in charity •  last year

Another school season has ended and yet another school year is about to start. For sure, many students and parents are excited for it and they are now preparing the things needed for the upcoming school year. Unfortunately, not all kids who wish to learn can afford basic school materials or even decent uniforms. For a typical parent, it is something they look forward to but for our low income indigenous brothers and sisters at the highlands, it is an added predicament they needed to solve.

That’s why, The Happy Forest Kids(HFK), together with our club Lulu Mountaineering Club(LUMOC) and other Mountaineering Clubs of Mindanao is initiating another program in preparation for the school year 2018-2019. This coming May 19-20, 2018 Our group will go back to Sitio Nangalid, Brgy. Datu Salumay, Marilog District to conduct a “Brigada Eskwela” program to the children of Nangalid Elementary School.

Our aim is to keep the children in school and address dropout problem through the means of school supplies and art materials gift giving and school classroom repainting. It is our way to help them have a fresh start to secure their future and inspire them to continue dreaming for a better life.

Our tentative activity schedule is as follow:


School Repainting.

  • Nangalid Elementary school currently has an existing 1 storey building with 3 classrooms and the newly built 1 storey building with 4 classrooms.
  • 3 classrooms needs to be repainted.
  • Stage needs to be repainted.

School Compound general cleaning

  • Aside from paint jobs, we will make sure that the area surrounding the school is always clean and green.


School supplies and art materials gift giving

  • There are 100+ children that are currently enrolled at Nangalid Elementary School last school year. We plan to give every kid a school kit that has all the needed things for them to perform well in school.
  • We are aiming to supply the children not only basic school kits but also art materials for them to enhance their art skills and imagination.

Feeding Program

  • Last March 28-29, 2018 we prepared Arrozcaldo for the local community of Sitio Nangalid and we were able to produce enough for the whole community. This time, one of the LUMOC member will be having a birthday and she pledged to sponsor our feeding program with packed lunch.
  • In addition to the sponsored packed lunch, our club is planning to add Champorado or even Spaghetti depending on the donations we will be able to collect.

Turnover of the donated educational Books

  • As of now, I personally have 1 box full of educational books from Ma’am @luvabi and another member of our club also has 3 boxes.
  • The donated books will be displayed at the school’s library and other books will be available at the Happy Forest Kids shelter at the back of the school.
