Sagay City Teachers Inspire ‘Bayanihan’ Through Sharing Stations


A group of public school teachers in Sagay City, Negros Occidental has sparked the “bayanihan” spirit in their community by setting up sharing stations that provided free food and home essentials for needy families.

For two weeks while the northern Negros City was under the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) due to coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-2019), the teachers organized school-based and mobile Bulig-HaTAG Stations, which benefited some 600 households from various villages.

Senior Education Program Specialist for Social Mobilization Josette Balandra, the project focal person, said the goal was to provide one viand a day for seven days to each beneficiary-household to supplement the food packs they received from the local government.

The “tiangge for free” initiative was realized through the generosity of private donors and other partners, and also through the kindness of some beneficiaries.
