MORE THE FUN IN THE SUN: THE BORACAY EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENT FUND

‘The greatest gratitude comes in lending hands to helpless ones.’

More the glamour of summer beach and endless fun in Boracay Island, Aklan Philippines are the true
and genuine hearts of the people. The island is one of the hottest tourist destinations that can battle
among the best beaches in Asia. According to the Department of Tourism (Philippines), there are three
million targeted tourist visitors that will be landing on this year, so far the records on the 1st quarter of
2013 shows a good and favorable statistics. AS compared on the 1st quarter of 2012, the tourist arrival
record has increased to 9.2%.

But what is more to discover than the high hitting tourism of the island? Majority of the population in
Boracay works to support tourism as it is the most evident source of their income. But the unrealized
truth of the matter is, even minors do it for a living. You can see minors roaming around the place and
collecting shells in exchange of monetary value from the visitors. And this is the sad reality behind the
beam of the sun and the powdery white sand.

This is a realization that hits the heart of the founders of Boracay Education and Development Fund, a
non-profit research organization that is mostly composed of the movers and shakers of quality
education in the community. Their mission is to reach out to a wider range of volunteers and people
who also believe on the importance of education to the youth. The organization also aims to provide a
sustainable education program that can offer the same quality of education to those who cannot afford
to go to private schools. The Board Members have so much belief on the youth of today and even built
stronger partnerships on the Philippines and beyond to build a stronger foundation on what they
believe in. Apart from education, Boracay Education and Development Fund also aim to give assistance
to the rest of the community through micro financing and cooperatives.
