31 May PBSS Boat Donation to Yellow Boat of Hope
The Philippine Bayanihan Society Singapore (PBSS) donated a Yellow School Boat to the Yellow Boat Foundation in a turnover ceremony held in May of this year. It is one of the 15 new boats gifted recently to the Yellow School of Hope community in Sitio Tehemen, Maluso, Basilan
The project aims to ensure that the students in coastal communities reach their schools safe and dry. The local families who are the recipients of these boats are also able to use the boats for other livelihood activities in between class hours to better support their families and children.
Dr. Anton Mari Lim, co-founder of the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation, was one of the keynote speakers of last year’s inaugural PBSS’ “Bayanihan Lecture” where he talked about “The power of One and the collective impact of Bayanihan on social entrepreneurship”.
