Two years ago our students have difficulty to enter a regular and normal school setting due to constant sickness and absences for lack of food for their lunch. Before majority of our students are still going to the mountains to look for food for their meal. Most often less than half of them were able to make it to the end of the school year. Thus we launch our feeding program to assist this need- The Free Daily Lunch Feeding Program. Last year out of 25 students, 22 were able to make it to the end of the school year. This year through your generosity, 6 students are promoted from their small village elementary school to the barangay elementary school.
