ESCO donates Bahay Kubo for Badjao Learning Center

ESCO recently donated a Bahay Kubo to be used as Community Learning Center for the Badjao children in Talao-Talao and Dalahican, in Lucena City. The Bahay Kubo will be the center of activities in promoting literacy among the children of Badjao fmilies living in the coastlines of Dalahican. The kids, around 82 with ages from 4 – 12 years old, will be taught basic reading and writing and prepare them for integration in the public school system. ESCO officers Mon de la Isla and Aaron Castillejo with Jose Ramo attended the turn-over rites of the Bahay Kubo to the Payatas Orionne Foundation led by Fr. Martin Mroz. A food-feeding program and gift giving immediately followed the turn-over ceremonies.
