School year 2019-2020 for public elementary schools already started, but there are school children who go to school without school supplies. Prince Jared Calundoy is one of them.

Prince Jared is a grade two pupil of Asinan Elementary School located at Buenavista, Bohol. He is the eldest among five siblings. He goes to school despite scarcity of resources. His mother would describe him as a hardworking child. But because of financial difficulty, he would sometimes skip his class and help his parents bind the fishing net as fishing is his family’s primary source of income. Given his limitations to focus on his studies, Prince Jared still managed to be an honor student.

“Malungkot ako kasi pasukan na wala pa akong gamit. Kaya masaya akong nabigyan ng bag ng Sagip Kapamilya”, Prince Jared said.

He is just one of hundreds of thousands of elementary pupils who received Gusto Kong Mag-Aral bags of Sagip Kapamilya nationwide.

Sagip Kapamilya recently distributed a total of 2,003 Gusto Kong Mag-Aral (GKM) bags in Bohol. Thirty – one (31) schools from Buenavista District received 1, 688 GKM bags while Sikatuna District received 315 GKM Bags. Inside GKM bags are notebooks, eraser, ballpen, pencil, sharpener, and crayons.

“Maraming salamat, Sagip Kapamilya. Mahalaga ito sa mga bata o pamilya na hindi kayang bumili ng bag.” said Noel Duavis, Acting Public School District Supervisor, Buenavista, Bohol.

Prince Jared’s story is one among the many stories that inspired the launching of the Gusto Kong Mag-aral project of Sagip Kapamilya. GKM project is part of Sagip Kapamilya’s rehabilitation efforts to help the disaster-stricken areas to start again. The project aims to encourage the children to go to school by providing them basic needs such as school supplies.
