Growing the school from scratch has not been easy. Yet we are committed to keep our fees as low and socialized as possible to accommodate as many children from very low-income families.
Our secret: we’d rather not buy things that we can wait for somebody to donate. Like our refrigerator and oven and desktop computer.
We’ve categorized and listed all the materials that we need on this page.
So the next time you’re at home or in the office please do check if there’s anything there which you can donate to Tuburan!
Gikan sa among kasing-kasing, daghang salamat! (From our hearts, thank you very much!)
Note: We’ve included a price list for some items in case you want to give cash instead. We’d gladly accept new, slightly used items that are still in good condition.
