We are raising funds to cover the freight costs to send much needed school supplies (Pencil Case Sets) to 700 children from disadvantaged families in the Tacloban, Philippines region. Each individual set will cost approx A$1.25 to bring a huge smile to face of each child.

The goods have been generously donated by a kind anonymous Australian sponsor. Their only wish is for these items to safely reach kids that would greatly benefit them. On this project we are working with a local NGO – Volunteer for the Visayans ( ) to ensure the right children are the worthy recipients.

Each set contains:-
1 x Pencil case with zip
1 x Plastic ruler
2 x Highlighters
3 x Ball point pens
1 x Felt tipped permanent marker
1 x Paper scissors
1 x Pencil sharpener
1 x Rubber eraser

Total weight of this project is 150kgs and will be sent from Melbourne to Tacloban, Philippines over 6 separate “door-to-door” and “hand carried” consignments. United Aid Projects (Les Treacy) will assist with distribution on behalf of the donor & project sponsors in March, July, October & December 2018 (apart from the June distribution to VFV Sponsored School Children).

Likely schedule for shipments are:-
March 2018: 2 Cartons for Swim School Kids (No Charge / Hand Carried)
April 2018: 1 Carton for VFV Kids base stock (No Charge / Hand Carried)
June 2018: 3 Cartons for VFV Sponsored Kids School Supplies (A$260)
July 2018: 3 Cartons for a chosen Tacloban Regional School (A$260)
October 2918: 4 Cartons for a chosen Tacloban Regional School (A$350)
November 2018: 1 Carton for the VFV Christmas Gift Giving Project (No Charge / Hand Carried)
Total: 6 separate consignments of 14 cartons / 150kgs in total (est total cost A$870 or approx A$1.25 per set)

Join us to make this project a success for these children.

Your generous financial support has brought big smiles to 348 children in the Philippines. That is one smile for every A$1.25 donated to this latest project.

From Little Things, Big Things Continue To Grow.....
The consignment of 150 sets of school stationery supplies have arrived in Tacloban, Philippines. These were distributed to the VFV Sponsored Children by Crisel (and her wonderful support team).

That's a total of 300 smiling young faces who are all truly grateful for your support of this project.
Another 150 reasons to smile.....

The next consignment of stationery supplies are on their way from Melbourne to Tacloban City with DHL.

Just in time for final "Back to school" preparation for the kids in the life changing Volunteer for the Visayans (VFV) Child Sponsorship Program. These 150 sets will boost the supplies we took over with us in March for the Swim School Project.

Well done VFV, especially our trusted friends Maria Crisel DM and July Bendaña Yubal for the distribution so far! We are sure the children are very happy & extremely grateful.

We are delighted with kind support from the first two generous donations (Thank you Wojtek, Philippe and Isabelle).

We are still raising fund to cover the freight and handling of the remaining school supplies.

A donation of just US$1.00 (or A$1.25) will make a difference. Simply click the link to make a secure credit card online donation.
