The success of the BfP program begins with the desire of teachers, faculty, and staff to give their underprivileged students and SARDO’s (Students at Risk of Dropping Out) a better chance in life. Like us, they see the bicycle as an asset that helps a child fulfill his potential and allows him faster, safer access to education.

BfP Program Director Joel Uichico is pictured here with Baclayon National High School (BNHS) guidance counselor Marie Mae Alcuizar-Briones (L) and former principal LV Jabonillo. Under Maam LV’s leadership, BNHS became the first ever beneficiary of BfP and its pilot program. She is now the principal of two schools situated in the 5th class municipality of Cortes, Bohol. In a few months’ time, she will be leading the BfP program there, too.
