Pagkatapos ng klase, magkapatid nagtatahi ng sapatos para may pambaon sa eskuwela



Netizens were impressed by these two sibling students who were photographed sewing shoes on the sidewalk of Valencia Street in Puerto Princesa City after school.


They are Manuelita Borbon, 13-year-old, Grade 8, and Micko Borbon, 12, Grade 7 in Palawan National School.

“Minsan pag may project ‘di na kami nagsasabi kila mama, kami na lang po bumibili,” said Manuelita.

Their parents Emmanuel and Mary Ann are also sewing shoes to earn money for their four children.

Mary Ann admitted that they were suffering from a hard life. Earnings from shoe repairs are not consistent the mother said.




“Mangungutang ka sa iba para mayroon silang pamasahe, pagkain. Syempre sa maghapon kasi pag halimbawa may nagpatahi sa amin, ‘di nila tinubos. Sa maghapon minsan P300 bubudgetin mo yun, kasi ilan sila. Mayroon pa akong estudyante diyan,” Mary Ann said

“Gusto nila makapagtapos. Tapos, gusto ko sila magkaroon ng hanapbuhay na hindi lang ba yung, hindi nila maranasan yung ano namin (kahirapan),” Mary Ann added.

The siblings dreamed of becoming a soldier someday.


When the siblings have no money for school's lunch and fare, before going home, they will run to a family friend's repair shop "Ruel Gines" on Valencia Street near the children's school and sew some shoes.

“Pero actually, proud ako sa mga batang ‘yan kasi nagkaroon sila ng skills about sa pagtatahi. Dahil yung pangangailangan nila sa school nila, pwede nilang gamitin yun para matustusan even siguro sa baon nila,” said Gines.

“Nagkulang ang pamasahe namin. Kaya naisipan namin makitahi doon.” said Micko

The siblings are not ashamed sewing shoes. They want other students to be inspired by their story. That poverty can't stop you from achieving your dreams and from helping your parents.
