The Elementary School of Agusuhin- Annex is located at the coastal area of Barangay Cawag, Subi, Zambales. The school premise is originally a church, but in 2006 when a demolition was implemented in their original place, about 300 families were forced to move into its preset location.

The force eviction was done to make way for the building of a Korean-owned ship manufacturing facility -Hanjin.

What seed to be a house of worship was turned into a place of Hope. But now, they are facing another threat of eviction.

Everyday, they share their common moment of burden and dedicate their care to each other.

They owe nothing, but only to their classmates.
