11-Year-Old Mangyan Boy Makes Toy Vehicles Out Of Old Flip-flops

An 11-year-old Mangyan kid is using his current situation and crafting skills in order to provide something for his schooling.

Jupel, a Mangyan in Oriental Mindoro is a student with ambition and perseverance. He is a student at the Casillon Elementary School, which is a 20-minute walk from his home.

He will walk most of the times barefooted because his family can’t afford to buy his slippers. Having good parents, Jupel will sometimes have some flip-flops however, the pair won’t take long because of the rocky road he treks.

Having lots of worn-out slippers and equipped with imagination, Jupel started to make toy cars out of the rubbers and sticks. They toys are manually carved using poor materials that’s why the edges are not smooth.

Jupel is now trying to sell the toy cars so he can have money for his school. Yep, what you read was right, for his school. His school is needing some funds to construct more rooms.

The official fan page of Indigenous Ph discovered the talent of Jupel. The group is now asking for the helping hands of people to help deserving students like him to continue with his studies.

“SayoNaTsi”It’s amazing to see how people use their imagination and talent to create something from nothing. Just like…
