“Today’s children are tomorrow’s future. They hold the future in their little hands. What we give them today is our tomorrow.
Make sure everyone understands.”

Last October 5, Jamie Del Rosario-Martinez, Project Coordinator of Humanist Alliance Philippines International in Alabang went out to give some rice and sardines to the HAPI Kids there.

We all know how bad this COVID-19 is; it’s not just health that they are attacking it also affects our work, but also our economy, education and life.

Speaking of education, the situation here in the Philippines is quite difficult especially now that we are experiencing this pandemic.

The Department of Education launched DepEd Commons, an online platform for public school teachers to support distance learning modalities. TeacherPH called it a direct solution to give access to online review materials and Open Educational Resources during class suspensions and other similar circumstances.

The question is, can everyone afford to buy laptops, tablets or smartphones? The answer is “No”. As much as HAPI wants to help everyone, we only have limited resources.

And we are saddened by the news that some of the HAPI Kids are not able to attend online class. For them to not to feel so sad, HAPI gave them rice and sardines. We know it’s not much but it will help them and their families.

“It’s the little things that are important.
Like a little seed becomes a tree or flower.
Little voices can say some very big things.
Like a drop of rain can start a thunder shower.”

“Today’s children are tomorrow’s future.
Make sure everyone understands.”
