Binhi is a Filipino word for “seed.” This reflects the goal of BINHI English Literacy Foundation of planting seeds of empowerment among Filipino children through its DepEd Adopt-a-School accredited literacy program.
One in every ten Filipinos aged 6 to 24 is an out-of-school youth and the leading reasons for such are family matters, lack of personal interest, and financial concerns. It is very likely for this number to rise due to the challenges brought about by COVID causing around 4 million learners not to enroll for the coming school year, according to DepEd.
Let us help in motivating the youth to stay in school and in building their confidence to dream big. It is through youth empowerment that we uphold the future of our nation by teaching them to read and write today. This is emphasized in BINHI’s belief that “Today they read, tomorrow they lead.”
