More than 100,000 students from Luzon to Mindanao will be given school bags and school supplies through the “Gusto Kong Mag-Aral” project of ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya – Operation Sagip, with the help of donors who want to help the country’s youth have a better learning experience this school year.

ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya-Operation Sagip director Jun Dungo said the project targets elementary school students in the entire country, particularly those from areas in poverty and frequented by calamities. 

ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya’s compassion and service for the Filipino people doesn’t end after a rescue or relief operation. This project is one way for us to ensure a bright future for our youth, especially those who really want to go to school. We are thankful for our donors for their unwavering commitment to help in making our countrymen’s lives better,” he added.  

A total of 1,300 students have already been reported to receive bags and school supplies at the Hermosa Elementary School and Orani Elementary School in Bataan. The project will continue in Catanduanes, Pampanga, Albay, Camarines Sur, Camarines Norte, Cagayan de Oro, Bukidnon, Compostela Valley, Nueva Ecija, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Kalinga, Bulacan, Quirino, Ilocos Norte, Benguet, Aurora, Zambales, Batangas, Mindoro, Laguna, Quezon, Pangasinan, Iloilo, Antique, Capiz, Aklan, Bohol, Cebu, Samar, Leyte, Lanao del Norte, and Zamboanga del Norte. 

ABS-CBN has been in the service of Filipinos worldwide for over six decades. Public service has remained constant through the years as the media and entertainment company evolves and serves many generations of Filipinos through news and programs that inform, inspire, and empower, and projects that directly impact the lives of the people.

Nadnad, one of the beneficiaries in Bataan, shared that he gets inspiration to pursue his studies from his parents, a laundrywoman and janitor. 

My dream is to take care and help my parents,” he said in an interview on “TV Patrol.”

Another beneficiary, RJ, a Grade 1 student from Orani North Elementary School, is determined to become a doctor in the future. Her mother shared how extremely difficult it is to make ends meet, especially with her spouse undergoing dialysis for the past 5 months. The young girl already recycled old notebooks for use this coming school year, and was overjoyed to receive new school supplies.  

I promise to be good in my studies,” she said.

Schoolchildren like Nadnad and RJ inspire the people behind “Gusto Kong Mag-aral” as they serve as a reminder that there is hope even after tragedy and to never stop dreaming for a better future.
