“The spirit of service is the heart of humanity.”

This is the mantra of the group of English as a Second Language Teachers (ESL) of World Leaders English Academy in Baguio City in organizing the non-profit organization geared towards helping communities, particularly  day care centers and elementary schools in far-flung areas.

The group, called Thudong-Mi which means “our help” was established on Jan. 7, 2017.

In time for the school year 2018-2019 class opening, the group reached out to Pongo Child Development Center in Bakun and pupils of Biangdan Primary School in Mankayan where it provided 93 learners with school supplies.

The beneficiaries received bags, notebooks, pad papers, and pens.

The event is the group’s seventh mission since it started reaching out to learners in 2017 with Dontogan Learning Center, Barangay Dontogan, Baguio City as beneficiary of its first mission.

The organization aims to contribute to the achievement of one of the Sustainable Development Goals, which is to achieve universal primary education by providing educational materials, proper hygiene care, and by promoting activities for character and values development to its beneficiaries.

From the first mission, the group held its second mission at Labueg Daycare Center of Kapangan, Benguet. The members were inspired by the request of a friend so they had their third mission at Amacalan Elementary School of Gerona Tarlac in cooperation with World Leaders English Academy.

Because of continuous support coming from individuals, the group reached out to more schools like La Trinidad Central School in Buyagan, La Trinidad; Beleng-Belis Elementary School in Kapangan; and Danac Elementary School in Sugpon, Ilocos Sur.

Thudong-Mi also distributed bath soap, toothbrush, and combs, to teach students the value of personal hygiene.
