Bag of Dreams. Remember the excitement of getting brand new school supplies as a kid? The thrill of unwrapping fresh notebooks, sharpening new pencils, and organizing colorful crayons in your backpack? Sadly, not every child gets to experience this joy.

In the quiet town of Guinayangan in Quezon Province, the start of a new school year is a bittersweet time for many children. While some students eagerly unpack their new school supplies, many others can only watch from afar. The children of coconut farmers, who often face significant economic challenges, know this reality all too well.

For families who rely on coconut farming as their primary source of income, purchasing new school supplies is often a luxury they cannot afford. The cost of living and farming expenses leaves little room for extras, making it difficult for parents to prioritize their children’s educational needs.

Recognizing this need, a community initiative has been launched to bring joy and hope to these young learners. The program aims to provide backpacks filled with essential school supplies to the children of Guinayangan’s coconut farmers. Each backpack, carefully packed with 10 notebooks, pens, crayons, and other necessities, represents more than just stationery—it symbolizes the promise of a brighter future.

The impact of this initiative goes beyond the physical items. It is about showing these children that they are seen, valued, and supported in their educational journey. By providing them with the tools they need, we are helping to foster an environment where they can dream big and strive for success.
