Bantay Edukasyon Opening Assembly 2014
The scholars together with their parents and the sponsors of the Bantay Edukasyon Scholarship Program welcomed the new school year during Bantay Bata 163’s 2014 Bantay Edukasyon Opening Assembly.
During the opening assembly, the scholars were able to receive their new school supplies and school shoes.
One of the scholars, “Neil”, said that the scholarship program gives more than education. “Binigyan ako ng tulong, binigyan ako ng kabutihan, binigyan ako ng edukasyon. Noon, isa akong mahinang binhi at darating yung araw na magiging isang matibay na puno ako.” (I was given help, I was given kindness, I was given education. Before, I was a just a weak seed. But someday, I will be a strong tree.)
The scholars are truly grateful for another year of having a chance to learn and go to school with the help of different donors who did not think twice to give them a better life through the gift of education.
