Topdac Elementary School is a small school in Topdac, Atok, Benguet, managed and maintained by a lean staff composed of eight committed faculty members and local stakeholders who are passionate about the well-being of its students. The faculty is constituted by seven teachers and one school head. There are a total of 117 students attending this school.
The students of Topdac Elementary School are dedicated to obtain their education as they would have to hike several kilometers a day in order to attend their classes: 24 students are from Nalseb, Topdac who have to hike 5 kilometers to go to school; 42 students are from Paul, Topdac who have to hike 3 kilometers; another 7 are from Tamocmoc, Topdac who have to hike 1.5 kilometers; 11 come from Abiang who hike 2 kilometers; and lastly 33 come from the town proper of Topdac who would still have to hike 1 kilometer everyday.
Recently, while the school was being renovated, around 40 wooden armchairs were placed outside the classrooms. This exposed the chairs to the harsh weather. The chairs are now mostly dilapidated mainly due to continuous rain in the area and are unusable for the students of Topdac. This project aims to raise funds in order to purchase new chairs and help Topdac Elementary School prepare for the coming school year.
These children diligently hikes everyday to go to school. We hope to be able to help them experience a good quality of education. Let’s help them achieve their dreams. The total cost for purchasing chairs for 40 students is PHP 50,852.00.
