School children in Sitio Bugtong Lubi, Barangay Damutan, Hinoba-an, Negros Occidental are almost ready to face the opening of a new school year.
Through the Angat Buhay program of the Office of the Vice President, private partners have been linked to the local government unit of Hinoba-an for the construction of two new classroom buildings.
The Negrense Volunteers for Change Foundation and the Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation continue to be reliable partners in improving public education. Children of Magsaysay Elementary School will no longer have to spend their days in makeshift classrooms.
The Angat Buhay program is also brewing another partnership, this time to provide for the school supply needs of the 115 students enrolled from pre-school to grade 6 in Magsaysay Elementary School.
Public education is among the six pillars of the Angat Buhay program, helping students from the poorest municipalities around the country.
