I am inspired, so much so that I want to share this with you. This is a project started by Jay Jaboneta called that Yellow Boat Project or Zamboanga Funds for Little Kids. His advocacy has raised money to buy bright new yellow boats for kids in Layag Layag, Zamboanga who literally have to swim everyday just to get school.
I admire how these kids clearly value education and I am moved by how the people involved in this project made this so much easier for them. I am a teacher and I will be very honored to have this kids inside my classroom at any given day.
People power doesn’t always happen in the streets and during national crisis only. It also happens when we go out there and actively help uplift the lives of our fellow Filipinos in any way we can.
Big actions can’t make that much of a difference in the world for it can easily be replaced by the next big thing in an instant, but little concerted efforts and actions of many individuals can.
