Filipino community in UK gives back to school children in Tineg

TINEG, Abra – A year after the visit of the Department of Social Welfare and Development Sec. Corazon Soliman, which inspired an international Filipino organization, the schoolchildren of one of the poorest municipalities in the country are now going back to school this year with complete basic school materials.

Kids of this town received their new school materials from the European Network of Filipino in Diaspora United Kingdom (ENFID-UK) group.

Through the ENFID-UK’s One Love Abra charity concert in cooperation with Side Projects, The Filipino Channel Europe, and DSWD Cordillera, the organization raised 1,400 pounds for children of Tineg with the help of the Filipino Community in the UK last June 22 held at King’s Cross, London.

The money raised was used to purchase school materials for the children such as bags, papers, pens, and notebooks. Every classroom in Caganayan Elementary School was also given learning posters, manila papers, reams of bond paper, calculators, and other supplies.

The organization also donated sports equipment such as badminton sets, balls for basketball and football, and chess sets. More than 400 school children will benefit from the donations of ENFID-UK.

The donated items were delivered by ENFID-UK representative Vanz Acosta Bio assisted by DSWD-CAR staff members last March 31 at Caganayan Elementary School. They were turned over to Tineg Mayor Corinthia Crisologo and school teachers.

Crisologo expressed her gratitude to the UK Filipino community for helping the municipality.

ENFID-UK is an ambitious movement to get all Filipino communities, associations or groups “connected,” for greater exchange of good practices, heightened sense of oneness and concern for one another, and more unified voice, thus creating greater political visibility to policy-making institutions, both in the country of origin and in the host country where these Filipinos reside at the moment.
