Education is one of the foundations of national development. However 1 in every 10 children in the Philippines are not in school and this rate has been steadily increasing. That's a total of 4 million children across the nation. Insufficient family income to support the needs of a child while in school, the lack of interest in attending school and early marriages to escape poverty are the three primary reasons for non-school attendance. APPEND helps to rectify this by providing bags with various school supplies for children to encourage them to stay in school instead of roaming the streets as a juvenile delinquent. The beneficiaries of this gift are elementary students including those children with special needs from indigenous people that are living in Central and Northern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. This gift covers one of the most needed school supplies: a notebook.
This gift supports communities in the Philippines and costs 800 points on JellyChip.
The target charity is APPEND.
