This project will help enable 100 students obtain a chance to experience basic schooling up to the secondary level and possibly earn a college degree in Dumaguete City, Philippines. The students are from various backgrounds and cultures, all with a common goal of finishing education.
In rural areas surrounding Dumaguete City, the lack of educational access across all levels is an emerging threat. Children who are supposed to be in school are seen on the streets selling candies, towels and light snacks, among others. Some are in the public market with their parents selling various commodities. For those who are able to attend school, resources are not enough for them to continue and graduate.
The project aims to help atleast 100 children finish elementary and secondary schooling. The children are those from the core shelter communities adapted by Foundation University. The project will help provide basic educational materials and resources to ensure that beneficiaries continue their school and graduate. A college fund will also be prepared for those wanting to pursue higher education and obtain a college degree.
The project will help improve the literacy rate of the adopted communities by increasing the number of children attending school and eventually graduating from elementary to high school. With the accumulated funding, atleast 100 students will be benefiting from free educational resources. It also aims to improve the over-all health state of the children and the community.
