Bongao, Tawi-Tawi (October 10, 2014) - It was supposed to be just an ordinary school day, until one hundred and four (104) pupils of Bacud Mahabah Elementary School in Bongao II District were surprised by Rebirth Outdoors Trekkers and Adventurers Philippines, Incorporated (ROTA). As part of the latter's outreach program, all pupils were given a pair of brand new shoes. ROTA's outreach program aims to reach out to underprivileged pupils in the far-flung area who are in school thereby contributing significantly to their increase in attendance and school performance.
