Philippines: Classrooms for Mangyan Students in Oriental, Mindoro


As part of celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Redemptorist Vice Province of Manila, the Permanent Commission on Social Mission Apostolate (PCSMA) built and inaugurated two classrooms in Cabuyao, Panaytayan, Mansalay, Oriental Mindoro. The beneficiaries of the classrooms are the Mangyan students at the mountain of Mindoro, who walks kilometres and hours to be in school. The Mangyans are an indigenous tribe of Mindoro who are also underserved and underprivileged. The two classrooms were blessed last November 28, 2022.
