Some of the schoolchildren who received their learning kits from Operation SagipThousands of Filipino children are going to school this June with greater hope and excitement after receiving brandnew bags and school supplies through the “Gusto Kong Mag-Aral” project of ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc.’s Operation Sagip.
Like last year, Operation Sagip has been going around different elementary schools in the country to distribute learning kits to students and further inspire them to pursue their education.
As of May 30, the team has given away 62,892 bags in provinces as far as Abra in Luzon, Samar in the Visayas and TawiTawi in Mindanao. A total of 105,000 children are expected to benefit from “Gusto Kong Mag-Aral” this school year.
Jun Dungo, head of ABSCBN Integrated Public Service and director of Operation Sagip, thanked donors for supporting the “Gusto Kong Mag-Aral” project again.
“The future of the country is in the hands of our youth. We hope that through this project, ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya is able to help ensure a bright future for the nation by encouraging our children to learn, stay in school and finish their studies. None of these would be possible if not for the continued support of our partner-individuals and organizations,” Dungo said.
Apart from the aforementioned areas, “Gusto Kong Mag-Aral” has also reached Mountain Province, Occidental Mindoro, Apayao, Ilocos Sur, Cavite, Rizal and Laguna in Luzon; Capiz, Aklan, Antique, Leyte, Bohol, Biliran, Eastern Samar and Iloilo in the Visayas; and Lanao del Norte, Sulu, Bukidnon, Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur, Davao Oriental, Zamboanga del Norte and Compostela Valley in Mindanao.
