Junk? Not!

Every end of the school year my kids end up with notebooks with only a few pages used up.  Pencil cases that are a tad dirty for the next school year.  And crayons that has some paper chipped off it doesn't look neat anymore. Junk?  Not!

TheGoMom in cooperation with A-HA Learning Center launches " Junk? Not! " It is a program that aims to gather old / used up but still usable notebooks (just tear used up pages), pencil cases, pencils, crayons, pad papers, folders and envelopes for distribution to the underprivileged school kids of Makati.

" Junk? Not! " will run from May 14 - June 14.  Drop off centers are at any Piandre Salon near you.  Please leave a comment on this page or in TheGoMom's FB page so we could coordinate and acknowledge drop offs.

A-HA Learning Center is a free tutorial center for street children who belong to communities living in the South Cemetery and Catholic Cemetery along Kalayaan and Reposo Streets in Makati. The center started in May 2009, and currently services 75 school children from grade 1 to 3rd year high school, offering English, Math, Science and computer classes.

A-HA Learning Center also takes care of the yearly school supplies, tuition, and shoes of the children, along with educational fieldtrips.   A-HA Learning Center is  run by Linda Z. Francisco, Aina Zulueta-Valencia and Jaton Zulueta.

School supplies in excess of what is needed by A-HA will be distributed to select public schools within Metro Manila.

For what is already considered Junk on our side is already treasure to them.  Hope their "back to school" treasure will be full! Thanks!

Hope you can post the link in your FB page so can gather more "back to school" treasures for our public school kids. 


  1. Hi, I saw your article regarding Junk school supplies, I hope its still not too late to donate the supplies as I just saw your article.

    • Hi Laju! I’m so sorry the drive is already done and we were able to collate a considerable amount of used school supplies. Will keep you posted in case thegomom has similar drives in the future. Thanks!
