Over 2000 indigent Zamboanga children get assistance from Spanish aid

Zamboanga City (16 July) -- The economic hardship brought by lingering poverty in the countryside may have prevented some children from going to school, but not for these little ones.

One thousand one hundred (1,100) elementary school children in Zamboanga Sibugay and another thousand (1,000) high school students in Zamboanga City are now happily participating in their classes after they have availed the much-needed help from a Spanish-funded education assistance project. The assistance consisted of assorted school supplies, school bags, shoes, socks and rain gears as part of the aid package from AECI (Agencia Espaņola de Cooperacion Internacional).

Dubbed Accesso a la Educacion Y Mejora dela Calidad Educativa en Colegios dela Peninsula de Zamboanga (Improving the Access and Quality of Education of Students on Zamboanga Peninsula), the project aims to assist children and youths gain access to quality education by providing opportunities to help them become competitive and productive citizens of this country.

The project is being implemented through the Fundacion Humanismo Y Democracia (H+D) in partnership with the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), PTCA (parents, teachers and community association) and local government units in the area. (PIA ZC) [top]
