Education is one of the best and most empowering tools to propel a child to a better tomorrow. But for many impoverished children all around the country, dreaming of a better future is nearly impossible because of the hurdles they face, one of which is poverty. Led by TeamAsia and the Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP), the My Dream in a Shoebox campaign aims to help underprivileged kids reach for a brighter future. Through the distribution of shoeboxes filled with school supplies, let’s equip our future leaders and movers of society with the tools they need to make dreams come true.
It all began in 2009 when a simple dream gifting shoeboxes of school supplies to less fortunate Filipino children was realized with the collection of 200 shoeboxes. By 2013, our efforts have grown into a beloved Christmas tradition with over 13,000 shoeboxes reaching more areas nationwide.
