SURIGAO DEL SUR -- Anchored on quality education as a fundamental right of every child, some 2,400 students from 36 selected schools in the municipalities of Lanuza, Carmen, and Madrid, all in the northern part of Surigao del Sur, recently received essential school supplies during the gift-giving activity dubbed as “Unang Hakbang sa Kinabukasan (UHSK) Project 2023,” as spearheaded by the GMA Kapuso Foundation Incorporation.

The UHSK Project 2023 is a testament to the commitment of GMA Kapuso Foundation Inc. and its strong partnership to the local government units, the Department of Education (DepEd), and the 36th Infantry ''VALOR" Battalion, 4th Infantry Division, Philippine Army in addressing the educational needs of Filipino students, especially those in disadvantaged areas.

Of the 36 school recipients, 23 belong to Geographically Isolated and Disadvantaged Areas (GIDAS), the military confirmed.

Accordingly, the project focused on providing incoming kindergarten up to grade 2 students with school bags filled with necessary school supplies, as education is the foundation of their future. Yet, many of them still lack access to basic learning materials.

The identified underprivileged areas often face significant challenges in providing adequate educational resources to the students. By focusing on these communities, the UHSK Project 2023 aims to make a meaningful impact on the lives of these young learners. (36IB, PA/NGPB, PIA-Surigao del Sur)
