Pre-Pandemic and Today
In early 2020 the Bailey’s were locked out of the Philippines due to the health and safety restrictions resulting from the pandemic. Current plans are for the Bailey’s to reside in the United States and travel to the Philippines as needed to continue to serve and advance the Bajao villagers which they have come to know and love.
Pre-COVID, daily lunches were served by our cooks in all the public and village schools and prayer and Values Education was taught. Since the schools have been closed during COVID, the parents go to the public schools and pick up their child’s teaching modules to bring back to the villages. We hired local tutors to help our school children complete their lessons. By following this regime with all our students, our children have continued to successfully progress through to their next grade levels.
- Well: Finish drilling to provide fresh water.
- Rain Collection System: Augment irrigation during annual drought months
- Bajao Pastor’s Church: Rebuild to accommodate rising tides.
