Tulong Pambaon Project on the Go
Tulong Pambaon Project (TPP) is one of ICCP Group Foundation, Inc.’s (IGFI) core programs that aims to provide financial assistance of P20 daily allowance to underprivileged Grade 5 and 6 students in host communities. It started in 2011 with just 4 beneficiaries supported by IGFI. The program grew over the years, more so, when an employees’ involvement program for CSR activities was established in 2016. Since then, the sponsored kids increased in number as more ICCP Group employees signed up to sponsor students.
The P20 allowance from TPP can be used for transportation, food and school supplies. This intervention serves as motivation to encourage the students to keep going to school. For some, P20 may seem like an insignificant amount, but IGFI’s assessment in 2017-2018 revealed P20 is a sufficient base amount for the program. Students don’t need to be particularly intelligent to be part of Tulong Pambaon Project. The main qualifying factors are economic status, and the child’s drive and dedication to go to school. This is determined through interviews with potential beneficiaries, their teachers and family.
Pueblo de Oro actively supports Tulong Pambaon Project in keeping with its mission to empower people in communities in which it operates. As of this writing, all 245 sponsored kids in 20 partners schools under TPP have completed their primary education for the school year 2018-2019. At least thirteen (13) of them graduated with recognitions and honors. Based on the initial assessment done with the teachers, parents and sponsored students themselves, TPP thrives to this day because of the generosity of its sponsors.
