Babuyan Islands Mission
Project Aral at Silid Aklatan
Camiguin Norte, Babuyan Islands is one of the farthest project community reached by Black Pencil Project in the northern Philippines. It began from a simple whale watching expedition in the summer of 2009 and led to an amazing collaboration with various charitable group of volunteers headed by Fr. Joemar Sibug, OP of the Dominican Missions. A story of a pencil equally divided into three pieces by a teacher so that three children would be able to write came from this community and inspired Black Pencil Project advocacy further to reach out where hope is needed the most.

Did you know that for just One Hundred Pesos (Php 100.00) a month, or One Thousand Pesos (Php 1000.00) for one school year, you can already support one high school student's studies. It's not much for us, but for the schoolkids in the isles of Camiguin Norte and Calayan, it can make all the difference in the world!
