National artist Maestro Ryan Cayabyab together with the RC Singers are this year’s featured artists in a digital fund raising concert dubbed as ‘Musika Para sa Kinabukasan’ on June 5, 2021 for the benefit of Family Farm Schools (FFS) and its students. This online concert aims to raise funds for the infrastructure and scholarship programs of Dagatan and Balete Family Farm Schools, as well as increase awareness for the preservation of the agricultural sector.
The Family Farm School was pioneered by Pampamilyang Paaralang Agrikultura, Inc. (PPAI) which is a member of the International Association of Family Movements for Rural Training headquartered in France and has a network of 1,000 associations covering 100,000 families in 40 countries. The first school in the Philippines began operation in 1988.
For years, the Dagatan and Balete Family Farm Schools have been working towards delivering better learning experiences for their students, however, raising funds for the renovation of their facilities and funding their scholarship grants have been quite difficult.
Since majority of the families of the students of FFS belong to class D (low-income families), and the yearly cost of education in the Philippines is close to P50,000 per student, education of students at the FFS is highly subsidized. FFS hopes to continue to assist even the poorest of their students towards graduation through their scholarship programs.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the schools and students on a global level. It has changed the way education is conducted, and the ones truly left behind are those who cannot keep-up with the rigors of online distance learning. FFS hopes to find the means for these students and provide for them moving forward through the e-concert.
Join the cause, help and support the Family Farm School’s vision for quality education for all, and the advancement of the agricultural sector, come, and join the benefit e-concert ‘Musika Para sa Kinabukasan’ for just P500! A night of great music with the one and only Mr. C and the RCS on June 5, 2021 at 7PM (PHT)! The online benefit concert is open to the public. Those interested to watch just need to purchase a ticket via KTX.ph online ticketing platform, https://www.ktx.ph/events/28694/musika-para-sa-kinabukasan.
