Tulong Eskwela 20151:51:00 PM
Every year for the past three years, GABRIELA-Youth have been doing a back-to-school drive to reach out to communities. Last year, we went to Tondo for the urban poor sector. We conducted Numeracy and Literacy program from April to May and launched Tulong Eskwela June of last year.
This year, we went to Langkaan in Cavite to integrate with the farmers who continue to experience land grabbing (a perennial problem in the country that can't be solved by CARP or CARPER). We arrived early Saturday and left on Sunday afternoon.

We tilled the soil and planted some ginger. Back breaking work, given that the farmers still use cows, unlike our Asian neighbors with super advanced machinery. Where are the priorities of the government again?
Of course we don't come here and not share our principles. Unlike those philanthropists and charities that just come and go, we live with the people so we can learn their struggle so we come back reaffirmed to fight for genuine social change.

Some behind the scenes photos! (Feeling.)
|Behind the scene of the behind the scene! Unnatural falling leaves. Hahaha|
