A group of teachers from Campaasan Elementary School in Oriental Mindoro organized a project called “Halaman Ko, Barter Mo” to help their students who are financially-challenged. The purpose of the project is to fulfill the basic learning needs of the children through a barter system where they trade plants in exchange for school supplies like learning modules, activity sheets, and even health kits.

According to the school Principal Lucy Ferranco, this project aims to bring back the old trading system while helping the kids. They also came up with this system because they are aware that everyone is struggling, too, whether financially or emotionally, that’s why they'd rather exchange plants than directly ask people for money.
