San Francisco de Assisi Elementary

KaEskwela made its second delivery of school supplies courtesy of National Bookstore Foundation to San Francisco de Assisi Elementary School in Minalin, Pampanga. Around 430 students received packs containing notebooks, pencils, erasers and sharpeners.
 Individual donors also contributed school supplies, books and 2 computers.
Nice books for their library!
Hardy Boys collection :)
The kids were all excited to get their new school supplies
 Yay!  New notebooks :)
They were all well behaved when we arrived.  The classrooms are neat and organized but a bit warm since there is only one fan in each room.  We later found out that the teachers used their own money to purchase these fans. If you wish to donate, please email us at
The younger kids gave us a sleepy welcome because we walked in on their afternoon nap! aaw!
26% of the kids in the school are malnourished :(
Today's lesson
The teachers prepared a very yummy lunch for us after.  We were all very touched :)
A toilet bowl in the middle of the rubble!
They demolished an old building to make room for a garden.  I look forward to seeing more plants and trees when we come back :)
