Looking back, MoneyGram has delivered school supplies to barrio schools in various indigenous people’s communities. They have built classrooms for school children in Central Visayas.

According to Alex Lim, MoneyGram’s country manager, “There is no doubt about the positive impact of early education in the life of a child. By making learning resources more accessible we are children to learn and gain skills they need to transform their lives and the reality of their families.”

“We hope that by providing educational materials, we will inspire children to keep learning, keep dreaming and to grasp the opportunities that occur every day,” Lim added.

For their latest charity event that caters creativity to their beneficiaries, they set up a mini Chinese Painting tutorial at the Chan Lim Art Studio in Pasig. They invited students from UPIS, guided with their library staff. The kids had a lot of fun unleashing their creative side.
