BPUSACares

BINIBINING PILIPINAS USA CARES is pleased to announce that the Filipino-American beauty pageant - BINIBINING PILIPINAS USA - has chosen the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation as a beneficiary partner for its annual pageant. This cooperative venture came about in an effort to raise awareness and create social impact, as well as a way to highlight the needs of disadvantaged Filipino children.

The foundation provides yellow school boats and other modes of transport, along with structures (such as boats, bridges, dormitories, classrooms, and schools) to help struggling Filipino children get to school, and stay in school. It is a NGO/nonprofit with headquarters in the Philippines and a satellite office in Los Angeles, California.

In a country where there are not much opportunities, education is the only way to break the cycle of poverty amongst the poorest of the poor. In some remote areas of the Philippines, kids need to trek for long hours over dangerous ravines, muddy trails and rivers just to get an education. Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation works to make it easier for kids to go, stay and finish school. Know more about YBH. Please click: www.yellowboat.org.
