Be inspired

The passion  for this effort to seek for possible contributors to our mission in Ifugao is our determination to help the kids who walked the mountains and cross rivers and streams for hours just to come to school. Their urge to learn despite of the long walks they endure is already extraordinary. Don't pity these kids just because they have forests to run, they have stars to light the night sky, they have living streams to dip in whenever they want, and mountains to have them lulled.

What they're deficient are the things they needed when rainy days approaches, a raincoat to shield them from going drenched in the rain, a bag to secure their belongings, a boots or a slipper to protect their feet. Consumable school supplies are also in their wishlist. Ask them what they want and they will shyly say notebooks, pencils, crayons- things that they needed in their schooling. They won't ask for things like the cellphones, computers, or other gaming consoles, yet, they are happy kids. Yes, we have those things whenever we needed one, but to the kids of the hills, those things are riches.

And yes we can afford our daily share of expensive coffee and a day without sipping luxurious coffee won't hurt. We don't ask for donations to boast of what somebody just shared, contributions that offered with compassion is very much longed-for.

We don't ask for priorities, the recent calamities and disasters happened are not a hindrance in our motivation to seek help for the kids of the hills. We can be of help to those kids in one way or the other.

Be inspired.. Be of Help..
