Papel gunting bata: A School Supply Drive for Mindanao


In the spirit of the season, let us give some thought to the young learners in Mindanao whose homes and schools have been wiped out or damaged by Typhoon “Pablo.”

Inquirer is collecting school supplies to be distributed to children in Mindanao to help equip them for learning when classes resume.

The Department of Education will be putting up school tents in the days to come to serve as temporary learning places in the affected areas in Mindanao. There are over 50,000 students who have been displaced by Typhoon Pablo.

What they need:

Backpacks or bags, pens, pencils, scissors, markers, crayons, pad paper, notebooks, pencil cases, sharpeners, erasers, glue, staplers, folders, rulers, Manila paper, chalk, art supplies and the like

Bring your school supply donations to any of these drop-off points:
