These Teachers Barter Plants in Exchange for School Supplies
Their community has pitched in to help!
It goes without saying that the COVID-19 pandemic has hit everyone hard. Educational institutions, including schools in rural areas, have been constantly finding ways to prepare for the opening of classes, making sure that students and teachers will have ample supplies for the school year.
The teachers from Campaasan Elementary School in Oriental Mindoro, led by principal Lucy Ferranco, knew that it’s not easy to solicit for what the school needs as everyone has been affected by the pandemic. They instead came up with a barter project called “Halaman Ko, Barter Mo”: in exchange for much-needed supplies, the school would offer its supporters plants.
Check out the video below for their full story.
