Student Volunteers

Humber College Creative Advertising student and Greenhope for Children volunteer, Gerardo Agbuya

Humber students are taking what they learn at school and using it to volunteer and help out those less privileged outside the college walls.

Greenhope for Children is a youth-led not-for-profit organization with a mission to provide education to children living in poverty in Third World countries.

Gerardo Agbuya, 21, in third year Creative Advertising, moved to Canada from the Philippines at 14.

“I lived in a small province. It’s one of those places where agriculture is big. The saddest thing is that after elementary (school), because it’s free, that’s it for them. They don’t have the money to go to high school so they just work.”
