Giving Smile to the Indigenous People of Mag-Antsi

09 Nov Giving Smile to the Indigenous People of Mag-Antsi

The Smile Project, a community of individuals for social impact. Our very mission since the beginning, “Bigyang Ngiti” or Give a Smile is what drives TSP team to go on #adventuresthatmatter – as the slogan implies “making the Philippines smile one outreach at a time’, The Smile Project PH visited indigenous communities and bond with the kids there. In one day, volunteers were able to regroup kids in the community – play with them, tell them stories them, take lunch with them, and hear their stories as well.

 

Here in Smile Project, our goal is to make every indigenous kids we visit smile in one day –be inspired to pursue their dreams.
This December 1, 2018 we will be giving Smiles to the Community of Mag-antsi, Bamban, Tarlac, Philippines.
The outreach program, with target beneficiaries of 180 kids/180 indigenous families for $10 each we are raising funds to provide them slippers, hygiene kits, school supplies and groceries.

 

As part of our 2018 “Smile4Sustainability” campaign, the event will also seek sustainable livelihood of the community by pursuing agri-related crafts e.g. mushroom-culture and agri-gardening with the use of recyclable plastics.
One of the event highlights includes “SmileHands”, where kids will be oriented about proper handwashing and how clean hands can save their lives.

 

As the community lacks access to clean water we also hope to provide them a rainwater harvesting and filtration system that will cost $2,000.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.

    The Mag-antsi Aetas (Indigenous People) live in the far flung mountain area of Tarlac, Philippines. The kids under school walk by foot to make it to school and in the case of grade 4 to grade 6, the kids have to go down the mountain very early in the morning to walk several hours to be on time for school. Some of the kids were discourage not only by facing significant hardships getting to school by foot, but also where to get their school supplies and food for the day to survive at least a school year.
    The Smile Project is really grateful that the Wishwall foundation will support our dream of making the Philippines smile.
    This would be the biggest smile project giving smiles event and because of wishwall foundation we will be able to give 180 kids slipper, school supplies, hygiene kits and groceries. We would be able to inspire and be inspired by them.
    Thank you so much.
