Crossing rivers to deliver workbooks in Alabel

From June 25-26, QUEST project staff and volunteers from the Provincial Government’s ICT office trekked and even crossed a river 23 times to deliver workbooks to Grade 1 pupils in elementary schools in Alabel. Parents from these schools also helped by lending horses to carry the books. Photos provided by QUEST, captions provided by the Sarangani Public Information Office.
