Let's take care of our beaches!

As part of Kwaderno's month-long anniversary celebration, Kwaderno was back in Hinobaan to organize a clean up drive in Brgy Asia. Hinobaan's main tourist attraction are it's beautiful beaches and lately some of these shorelines have started accumulating unwanted basura. Under Kwaderno's Environment Protection Program, we have worked hand in hand with the villagers to help us clean their beaches in exchange for eight notebooks for each of their students in the area. On May 17, 2015 we were able to distribute 400 more notebooks to 63 students right after we all did the beach clean-up  and a short discussion about the importance of protecting our environment. It was very fulfilling to see the children's smiling faces, eager to start their new-found mission of protecting the beach where their families depend their livelihood. /Anne Badilla-Gubuan
