— Our Story

Before the popularity of social media where almost every student has been getting information from, books were a luxury to own and libraries were rare in the municipality. Books were expensive that families who owned them, put them in closed cabinets, not readily available for children to read. A local young woman saw the need to promote the access to books  for disadvantaged schoolchildren whose families could not afford to buy them. In 2005, she started Donate-2-Create Project, an initiative to promote the love of reading and foster literacy among the most disadvantaged children in the municipality. The initiative helped children acquire their first books beside their borrowed school textbooks and eventually, established a library in local primary school.

 In August 2018, two successive tropical cyclones hit the province of Occidental Mindoro which left severe damaged on infrastructures, several fatalities, and left many people homeless. A group of young people organized an initiative  to extend relief to the underprivileged children in primary school where pupils lost their personal belongings due to severe flooding and strong winds. Together with youth volunteers , Donate-2-Create managed to provide immediate assistance to children and their families to replace their lost school supplies, clothing and sanitary kits.

 Since then, Donate-2-Create worked together with youth volunteers and the term ‘Sablayanihan’ was formed.  Sablayanihan is a fusion of two words , (1) Sablayan – name of the municipality where the project operates , and (2) ‘bayanihan‘ – a Tagalog word for  ‘spirit of communal unity, work and cooperation for a purpose.

 The name of the initiative was named Donate-2-Create : SABLAYANIHAN. In 2019, the group was registered as a non-stock / not-for-profit organization with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Bureau of  Internal Revenue (BIR) under the name SABLAYANIHAN INC. The organization aims to promote the well-being of the most disadvantaged children in Sablayan, Occidental Mindoro.
