Black Pencil Project to be featured in ABS-CBN

Inspired with the kids who serenaded us at Cambulo Village, Banaue, Ifugao Province, we formed the Black Pencil Project - a personal initiative to help provide pencils through resources mobilizations to public elementary schools in the remote barangays accross the country. It aims to encourage localized participation and individual commitment of goodwill in support to government education programs in the countryside.

Initial beneficiaries of the project are kids in Cambulo, Banaue, Ifugao.

We raised 700 pesos and a bunch of pencils from the recent Basic Photography Workshop, myself and Mon conducted (for free) with my montaineering group Boondockers. This coming Tuesday, we will be meeting with ABS-CBN. They will feature our initiative in their website. Hopefully this will create awareness and promote the
