We aim not just to help schools and their students, but the communities around them as well. Through partnerships with the private sector, our program helps uplift the basic infrastructure standards of education that every Filipino child is entitled to rED facilitates renovation projects between students of public schools and volunteers of private organizations.

of the students

the experience

theexperience-img

An experience like no other, rED is all about redeveloping communities. Chairs, tables and doors break in time; Inspiration, passion and determination endure. When it comes to helping our partners in the public school system, repairing something as simple as a chair could ultimately mean restoring a child’s yearning to learn more and dream big. This is why every rED event is fulfilling for both the volunteers, and the students, their families, and the faculty of the schools involved.

Aside from learning new things and meeting new friends, the best thing about joining a rED event is experiencing the restoration process from start to finish. All activities are designed to be competed at the end of each day – No project is left undone. With this, volunteers always leave with a strong sense of ownership, pride and empowerment having fulfilled a project that plays a crucial role in the education of others.

Who is a rEDChampion?

A rED Champion is a nationbuilder: a leader who encourages participants to learn the value of personal support, and of working with your hands while enjoying the process.

rED Champions cultivate a desire to share their experience beyond Metro Manila, finding more efficient ways to make rED operations sustainable.

rED Champions are the future: they carry the dream of uplifted standards of education infrastructure that every Filipino child is entitled to, and advocate rED nationwide. They are the physical manifestation of the rED nationbuilding spirit that can be passed down to anyone willing to share the responsibility where and when it is most needed.

A rED Champion is a volunteer who comes from all walks of life and understands that change can begin with one person.

Imagine what that one person can do with a team.

What makes a rED Champion?
»   The exemplification of rED virtues:
o   Leadership
o   Change-oriented outlook
o   Nationbuilding
»   The ability to take charge and re/build the top 3 rED items:
o   Chairs
o   Tables
o   Blackboards
»   Evident leadership skills needed in running or managing an activity or event
»   At the very least, participation in 10 red events in 5 different schools
