DE Bellevue Resort in Bohol, through its partner foundation Specialized Training and Education for Pilipino Students (Steps) Mission School, recently partnered with Anthony Wu and Jeannie Jin of Your Time Import and Export to open the Mobile Classroom of Hope for students in Barangay Doljo . , Panglao.
The classroom is primarily a supplementary center for teaching children how to read before they enter school. It also offers life training programs for parents of enrolled students.
With Bellevue Resort’s longstanding commitment to sustainability, it has made sure this project is no exception. The resort harnesses its energy from solar panels to minimize environmental impact and maximize cost efficiency, which they also see as a great opportunity to educate children about climate change and the importance of sustainability.
“When we learned that 40 percent of fourth graders in public schools still do not know how to read, we thought of different ways to help the community here in Bohol. And one of our best means is to provide access to education raise. shares Dustin Chan, Managing Director of The Bellevue Resort. “We are grateful for steps and your time Import and Export to partner with us to give hope and guidance to children to have a brighter future.”
The Barangay Doljo Kindergarten has 50 students under the mentorship of two full-time and part-time teachers. The organization is also currently holding phonics classes for 80 first-graders from various elementary schools in the local community.
With the addition of the Mobile Classroom of Hope, the project now has five existing classrooms. Classes are completely free. Parents only have to sign a commitment to participate in the education of their children by continuing to help at home.
Since Bellevue Resort launched its mission school with Steps 10 years ago, it has reaped the unexpected reward of seeing thousands of graduates, including students who finished in the top 10 of their classes in elementary school.
