Palawan’s Ink2Link is donating printing materials for the learning modules of disadvantaged students in the province to help them cope with the new normal of schooling in this time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The non-profit group was started by longtime friends Janjan Olit, Pepzee Tiococo, and Helga Lisboa who originally thought to sell affordable printer ink to schools in Palawan.
The business idea gave way to an ink donation drive which helps underfunded and remote public schools produce materials for modular learning amid the new modes adopted by Philippine education.
“More volunteers, communities, private individuals, and organizations have joined our cause and before we realized it, this simple #inkmovement has evolved into a #ink2linkmovement!” the group wrote on August 14, 2020.
Ink2Link connects teachers, parents, and education advocates to help produce modules for use of students under the blended or distance learning approach adopted by the Philippine Department of Education to keep children safe amid the pandemic.
The group together with their volunteers have provided the printing needs of 20 Ink2Link partner schools located in Coron, Culion, and Busuanga in the Calamian Islands on the northern part of Palawan, the Philippines.
The non-profit was able to raise over 125,000 pesos in donations as of September 13. Funds will go to the acquisition of printers, bond paper, and ink for select schools in Palawan.
