A Child's Journey: The Yellow Boat of Hope
In the Philippines, children face difficult challenges just to be able to go to school. Some children have to swim to school with their school bags and uniforms getting wet in the process, others don't have even the option to attend at all as they live too far away or are forced to work to help their families survive.
The Solution Offered by Yellow Boat of Hope
The Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation started when the founders learned that there are children in the south of the Philippines who have to swim to school. Drawing inspiration from the concept of the classic yellow school bus, the idea of the yellow school boat was born. But the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation didn't stop there. Today, they are building classrooms and schools, dormitories that serve as halfway houses, childcare facilities, and other structures to ensure no child is left behind. Your purchase from this collection will support their efforts to help children in the Philippines get the education they deserve!
Thanks to Sevenly supporters like you, some of those kids will now have a boat to take them to and from school. Sevenly’s recent campaign for Yellow Boat of Hope resulted in the funding of a boat that was commissioned just this week. Anton Mari H. Lim from Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation wrote us on July 1:
Thank you, Sevenly! Your yellow boat of hope is currently being built and will set sail soon! #HopeSails
Yesterday, we received this picture as the boat was being prepared for painting before being put to work for the kids. What a great reminder.
