TReK – Trails to Empower Kids

Got this e-mail from my friend and co-Team Boring core Mark Fer Castillo.

It is for a worthy cause… let’s extend our help this Christmas season…

Dear Friends:

For the past four years, the generosity of our colleagues, family and friends have allowed our group, Trails to Empower Kids or TREK to successfully hold outreach activities to children in far-flung areas. We have delivered much needed-school supplies, books, reference materials, visual aids and even construction materials for comfort rooms and water system to schools located in the mountains of Itogon, Casiguran, Tanudan, Pudtol, Subic Town, San Luis, Kibungan and Dilasag.

As we celebrate our anniversary this December, we renew again our commitment to continuously help children who live in isolated areas and be an efficient channel of help for other like-minded individuals and group who want to help give these students better education. We will commemorate this by revisiting the young agtas of Aurora, who study at the Sentrong Paaralan ng mga Agta located at Barangay Cozo, Casiguran, Aurora. Last May, 2008, our group had the privilege of meeting these student and we were able to share with them donations including school supplies, generator set, television and DVD player. On December 10, we will come back bringing some school supplies, clothing materials, food items and other items they may need.

Sentrong Paaralan ng mga Agta is about an hour hike from the barangay center, which is about 12 hours away from Manila. The school does not use the same system we are used to due to limited resources, plus the fact that these students are not used to “formal” education. The agtas are generally nomadic people. We were able to bring them some useful materials last 2008 but most of them were either consumed or ravaged by a fire.

We appeal again for your generosity. You can help us bring Christmas cheers to the young agtas by donating cash or other useful materials (school supplies, sporting equipment, food items, etc.), helping us with the transportation requirements of the project or by telling your friends about TREK.

Very truly yours,
