Grom Nation Siargao
Grom Nation focuses on the education of the new generations. They use surfing as a mechanism of engagement for kids to participate in their long-term mentorship program that educates the youth on the Island about social issues that they will definitely come across. They help equip them with the knowledge to know how to deal with these issues when they come across them. For example, drug and alcohol abuse, sexual harassment, bullying, poor mental and physical health, consent and much more.
They are trying to create long term solutions to poverty by improving school attendance/school performance and giving children the skills and opportunities that will help them blossom in the future.
What can I do?
Help them raise funds through two projects: you can either rent their “Happy Helmets”, available at Harana and at Loose keys, for only PHP 100 per day (it might also help you live another day), or purchase their Grom Nation t-shirts at Fat Lips Shop, Harana and Loose Keys. All proceeds go towards their projects.
