A Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) council in Pulilan, Bulacan provided online class essentials’ kit to senior high school beneficiaries.
Over 200 senior high school and college students were fortunate enough to be able to receive free school supplies and electronic gadgets to help them in their online classes. The SK council of Pulilan prepared kits that include a study table top, flash drive, earphones, notebook, ballpen, highlighter and correction tape.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, SK chair Rochelle Ann Valdez said they realigned their funds originally intended for sports activities to buy the items which are more needed now.
Valdez admitted that their project is not new but they were inspired by other groups who first made the initiative. They know that it would be beneficial to many students.
“To be honest, hindi po kami ang pioneer ng ganitong programa. Nakita lang namin siya sa social media and madaming kabataan sa amin na nagse-share ng mga posts na ‘Sana all, may SK’, ‘Sana all ganito din sa’ min’. At dininig namin lahat ng iyon, at pinatunayan namin sa kanila na may SK sila,” the SK chair said.
Valdez said they first asked the beneficiaries to register via social media. Then they personally delivered the online learning kits. She said it was important for the youth to feel the SK’s presence, especially in these challenging time.
“At this most challenging time, gusto naming iparamdam sa mga kabataan na mayroon silang mga ate at kuya na all out support sa kanila, na together, we will rise as one,” she said.
Aside from the online learning kits, the SK also launched a free printing drive and donated papers and envelopes to several schools in their area.
