note: this is not a sponsored post. I just want to share and write about a good deed that I have witnessed and participated in (I was the not-so-professional photographer of the event and me and my siblings helped my mom pack the school kits).
It’s the end of summer break and It’s almost time to go back to school (here in the Philippines) so last June 3, 2016, my mother held her 3rd project for Inryo Corporation Foundation, the “Back To School Project”. The objective of this project is to give school kits to the 65 kids of Sito Kaynaog who lives in a small community, few blocks away from the Inryo Plant. Many of them are in Kinder, Grade 1 & Grade 2 and some are in Grade 3 & 4.
I also learned from my Mom who was still shocked over the fact that they don’t have electricity and water lines in their place, imagine how hard is that.
The school kits consisted of notebooks (depending on what grade he/she is), two pencils, crayons, a sharpener and an eraser.
Aside from giving the school kits and sweet treats to the children, they also prepared a film showing, a few games, and a feeding program (they served ‘lugaw’ or porridge in English and INRYO‘s product, Omizu).
Here are some of the photos that I took:
I was scheduled to go to Pinto Art Museum that day with my sister and her best friend but I chose to attend the event. It was actually my first time attending a foundation and It felt really good to see others helping those people in need and being able to see the smile on the children’s faces when they received the gifts.
Kidding aside, looking at these youngsters and knowing what kind of lifestyle they have made me thank God and my parents for providing me a good life. I just hope these kids will be happy and successful as they grow up.
Thanks to Inryo Corporation, to the donors, to the team who helped and of course to my mom who worked hard to plan it all and was really tired after everything, the project was a success.
May God bless these kids and those people who helped them. Looking forward for more foundations like this!
