The idea to support Iram Elementary School in the Philippines was formed when Zeger did a photo shoot of the elders and children of the aeta population in Iram, Luzon, the Philippines. Zeger and his team noticed how poor the people are and wanted to help this community. The guide Eunice hesitantly asked for help for the aeta pupils of the elementary school where she is a teacher. The school is tucked away in the mountains. Since the photo shoot, help has been given to about 100 students. Help in the form of backpacks, school supplies, shoes, uniforms, umbrellas, Christmas dinners,… for many parents these are expenses they cannot afford. Have a look at the pictures to see what ZKF has done for these students.
For this project, ZKF could count on the fantastic collaboration with Betty Willems, who takes care of the complete follow-up in the philippines
