Gift-giving for School Year 2016 - 2017

Pens of Hope in Davao is planning to share some school supplies with our community partner in Baragay Panalum, Paquibato District this May, before the school year 2016-2017 starts. We invite everyone to support our cause!

School Kits

This year, we are reaching out to 103 students of different grade levels. These are the materials we intend to give the school supplies below. For costing and list of students, please check this spreadsheet.

Where to Buy the Materials: 

We ask our donors to directly buy the school supplies at D' B-JAG Marketing. Kuya Bryan, Ate April, Kuya Bobong, and the rest of their staff have graciously volunteered to pack the kits for the students. The shop has been our partner for the past three years.

If you'd like to donate but you're not available to go to the said shop, please coordinate with Kikit, one of our volunteers. You can contact her through our Facebook page:


We are unable to personally hand out the school supplies this year. The kits will be given to the kids through Ms Jennifer Viray Jayme, a teacher at Panalum Elementary School, the nearest elementary school from the community. Ms Jayme has supported our cause for a couple of years and is more than willing to be our coordinator for this activity.

We look forward to your usual support. Thank you. :)
