In the Philippines, Oxfam Unwrapped has brought a better class of education to more than 2,000 school children in 30 primary and elementary schools in Central Mindanao, and relief to Abdullhamid Manamba: “My daughter cried when the new school was built. Now she does not need to cross the river every day to attend classes.”

The project built six new two-classroom school buildings as part of an all-round package to bring education to everyone. There were ‘girl-friendly’ school latrines – girls don’t normally have their own, a major barrier to getting them into school – and shallow wells; desks, children’s tables and chairs, textbooks, storybooks and school supplies distributed to 30 schools, pre-schools and daycare centres.

Edsrapil Egkao is a 54 year-old farmer, and PTA President of Barangay Malala: “Oxfam has helped improve our school and our community – our children can now enjoy better classrooms, with adequate desks and chairs and textbooks, they now have competent teachers who can give them the education that they need. Oxfam is making things happen right now”.
