4 months ago, with no itinerary or coverage for the day, the team decided to do road trip and check the Siargao Circumferential Road. In the peaceful town of Del Carmen, Siargao Islands, famous for Sugba Lagoon and longest continous mangroves in the country, we met a lot of new friends, share their hopes, dreams and share their hobbies like fishing! We promise to ourselves we will come back next year.

Last February 16, the Black Pencil Project volunteers traveled to Brgy. Caub, Del Carmen, Siargao Islands for the fulfillment of School-In-A-Box campaign of Black Pencil Project in partnership with Moneygram Foundation. Last mile study kits were given to 350 learners in the islands to help boost class participation and reduced absenteeism.

Black Pencil Project is volunteerism platform that aims to empower remote and indigenous barrio schools in the Philippines with free access to school supplies like pencils, art materials and paper.
