The “Lapis at Papel Program” represents the expansion of a mission that began two years ago. Supporting the educational needs of the Filipino students, a partnership between the Commission on Filipinos Overseas and the Filipino Digerati Association (FDA) was formed. FDA believes that sometimes the only reason why most students fail is the lack of basic school supplies to do homework and participate well in class. This year, the FDA served more than 1,500 students from three public schools in Manila when they provided another set of school supplies last February and March.
Through this school supply drive, the FDA continues to support the educational needs of public school students and equipps them with the tools they need to make their learning a fun and an easy activity.
