The Philippines is made up of 7,107 islands with the majority of those islands heavily undeveloped. Many children have to swim or walk long distances to school because there are few available on the islands they live on. Parents worry that their children will have to go to school wet, however they often push their kids to go because of the difficulties of life without proper education. This gift provides a small stationery pack for a student who has to pass through water to get to school in the Visayas. These children often have to put their things in plastic bags in order for their items to remain dry. Oftentimes, these children do not have the luxury of always having plastic bags - so they carry their bags over their heads until they reach land again.
This gift impacts communities in the Philippines and costs 160 points on JellyChip.
The target charity is the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation.
