All smiles for students of Bontoc, Mountain Province

There's always time to give back

There’s nothing purer than seeing the sweet and joyous smiles on children’s faces. MR.D.I.Y., through the initiatives of kind-hearted organizers and volunteers of Pencil for a SMILE Project, have brought these smiles to the 231 students and their families from various schools of Bontoc, Mountain Province last December.

The hardworking organizers and selfless volunteers of Pencil for a SMILE Project under Pagna't iMontanosa group headed by Analiza Pelwa, Maialein Balisong, and Federico Murphy Jr traveled the mountainous trails for 2 days to visit 3 primary schools namely Guinaang Elementary School, Chapyusen Multigrade School, and Can-eo Elementary School to give school supplies to the students. Meanwhile, MR.D.I.Y. extended the holiday spirits by sharing household gift packs and rechargeable lights with the parents of these students.

Collaborating with an NGO or private groups is part of MR.D.I.Y.’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives to give something back to the different communities especially the hard-to-reach places.
