The Bata Project is a fundraising initiative begun by Winnipegger Glenda Ollero to help underprivileged Filipino children go to school.
Bata is “child” in Tagalog.
For $12, you can fund one child’s education for a year.
They are holding an auction in February 19 at the Philippine Canadian Center of Manitoba, 737 Keewatin Street.
Decorative chalkboards signed and designed by big Filipino celebrities and personalities, like Vilma Santos and Sharon Cuneta, will be sold to the highest bidder.
Doors open at 12:00 noon.
