The School of Satchel Sponsors Indigenous Student to Leadership School

 S.O.S. participated in Bloggers United 5 last June 1, 2013 held at SMX Convention Center

SOS PLEDGES, The School of Satchel’s community service program, is a proud partner of the Cartwheel Foundation, Inc. (www.cartwheelfoundation.org) in successfully sponsoring NYLYN SUPNET, 20, to Pamulaan Center for Indigenous People’s Education in Mintal, Davao City. The school is dedicated to the education of indigenous people (IP) in the Philippines.

Acording to Nylyn, “Being poor is not a valid reason for not attaining your goals in life”. Nylyn’s tribe, the Higaonon from Malaybalay, nominated her for the Young IP Leaders Program and Nylyn is now on her graduating year at the school. The main thrust of the program is to groom future community leaders and equip tribe adults with knowledge and skills to face challenges of the modern world and participate in community building.

The Cartwheel Foundation is a non-profit organization that seeks to give indigenous communities a future through quality and culturally relevant education. It sees a nation where indigenous Filipino people can exercise their right to have quality education and active participation in community life.

Now on its third year, SOS PLEDGES is funded by proceeds of the The School of Satchel’s sales. The brand is known for its hand-crafted leather satchels made from genuine cow hide. SOS supports Philippine leather industries by using Filipino leather and local manufacturing.
