“The youth is the hope of our future.” his famous quote of Jose Rizal lingers within the minds and hearts of every Filipino citizen as we look forward to our growing children. From their fragile state of infancy in becoming a responsible and virtuous Filipino, we have always wanted to support their enthralling process of growth. Therefore, the School is Cool Project ventures on their journey of assisting our dearest Filipino students amidst all the difficult challenges in life.
Founded last May of 2015, they started their compassionate mission in helping the less fortunate students and their families gain the necessary school materials and supplies for their proper education. Education is the key to success. With that in mind, they envisioned to make the zero rates of children who are out of school a reality. They remain committed to encouraging young people to pursue their education to gain the right education and credentials for their future.
Over the course of five years, they successfully distributed over a thousand school supplies. Because of these inspiring efforts, many sponsors rushed in to extend their hands to the children. Especially with the kind efforts of the Filipino community based in Kuwait, their charitable events prospered significantly. The dedicated coordinators and generous sponsors include the following.
