Project Baon, A Day Of Volunteer Service
Project Baon, one of Aral Pinoy’s longest-running and flagship projects, was launched in 2011 with a noble mission: to offer educational support to underprivileged children, ensuring they can successfully complete high school and college. In its inaugural phase, the project extended a vital lifeline to students by granting them monthly financial assistance throughout their college years. Every school year, this initiative carefully selects ten deserving students from our partner communities, ensuring they receive the necessary financial support to pursue their education.

Our commitment to education through Project Baon has left a lasting impact on our history. Today, we're building on that legacy. Inspired by the belief that impactful Volunteer Service requires a coordinated effort, Project Baon continues to gather volunteers, creating a positive impact in just one day.
Embark on a journey of selflessness and compassion, unleashing the power of kindness and generosity. Whether you're lending a helping hand to those in need or spreading love through community service, our Volunteer Service is the perfect platform to give back and make a difference. Don't wait; join us on this unforgettable journey.
Aral Pinoy visits the Day Care Center of Brgy. 804 Zone 87 that caters to 50 to 70 toddlers and preschoolers boys and girls while their parents are at work or unable to care for them. There are 3 Sessions: 8AM - 9AM, 930AM-1130AM and 3PM to 430PM. The volunteers will assist the Volunteer Teacher Bernadette "BADETTE" Montiza Mabulac in the day care center per session by providing a variety of activities and learning experiences that help the children develop important skills, such as socialization, language development, and motor skills.
Preschoolers are introduced to basic educational concepts such as the alphabet, numbers, and colors. A Day Care Center plays an important role in providing a supportive and stimulating environment for young children, allowing them to learn, grow, and develop important life skills.
