Mangyan schoolkids get timely help
Child’s Pose Yoga Project Philippines, Inc. is a youth-led organization that aims to create positive social transformation through yoga, sports, education, and life skills. “We decided on the Mangyan community, because it’s easy for kids in such situations to feel lost and ignored,” said Chi, referring to the region where their beneficiary is located. “That’s why we introduced them to various outlets and donated materials that will nourish and inspire them holistically so they can pursue their big goals and eventually become the tycoons, thought leaders, and champions our country needs.” “Initially, though, we were worried that we couldn’t push through with our efforts because of logistics,” shares Child’s Pose Yoga Philippines, Inc., founder Gillian Trinidad. “But as luck would have it, it was the teachers from the recipient schools themselves who suggested we use J&T Express.” J&T Express is one in its industry that serves all reaches of the country-- with the fastest delivery time and updated tracking system, to boot. Established in 2015, it now has a presence in eight countries, and is the Philippines’ leading e-commerce delivery service provider as it continues to expand across Southeast Asia.
“Especially in the time of COVID, it’s essential that we help enable those who may very well be the future movers and shakers of our nation,” stated Chi. “It’s all about bayanihan, and it’s our pleasure to be a part of this project.” Reinforced by statements also echoed by the teachers from the recipient schools, J&T Express has been known to effectively, safely, and reliably deliver packages with extra precautions considering the current pandemic climate. To date, Mangyan School has 287 enrollees. But thanks to the ease that J&T Express provides, more than enough school materials and modules for educators were able to reach even Mindanao--with these provisions helping to support the remote schooling of an additional six schools in the region. Also Included in these packages are bond paper, notebooks, pens, pencils, alcohol, face shields, and face masks. Other schools in hard-to-reach areas that benefited from the joint effort of J&T Express and Child’s Pose Yoga Philippines, Inc., include the Matlong Elementary School and the Talipanan Mangyan School. Previously, these schools were virtually cut-off from essential aid for their students. With this new partnership, every child dreaming of making their mark in the nation can soon make it a reality.
