Join Christy, one of our Filipina teachers, as she embarks on her daily journey to get to school, which takes her just over an hour. She takes a motorbike in her city (Tabaco City) to the seaport, travels across the ocean to a small island (San Miguel), and finally takes a motorbike up a mountain through rural settings to finally get to school.

Watch this video to see our partner school, San Miguel National High School, which is located on a small, remote island and students walk up to 3 hours just to get to school

The average teacher's salary in the Philippines is $400 USD/month. So to save money (50 pesos/$1 USD), teachers walk one portion of their journey (downhill from school to the seaport), which takes them around 30 minutes.
