As they move forward with the partnership, they will first focus on providing support to the fishing communities of Kapunongan sa Gagmay ng Mangingisda sa Concepcion (KGMC) of Concepcion, Kabasalan, Zamboanga Sibugay, and Luuk Tongkil in Banguingui, Sulu, enabling them to navigate the waters safely. The collaboration’s impact will extend far beyond the present, leaving an enduring legacy of hope, resilience, and inspiration. It envisions a future where every child can learn, grow, and thrive, regardless of geographical constraints.
Through the provision of yellow school boats, marine equipment, and educational programs promoting sustainable fishing practices, Santa Clara Marine Plywood Inc and the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation aim to empower the fishermen and their families.
The launch of this partnership calls upon individuals, organizations, and change-makers to rally behind the cause to eradicate barriers and ensure equal educational opportunities for all.
