Tita Betchai Visits

All our donors are family to us.  And when a donor visits, it is like someone was with us for a homecoming. Last month,  Elizabeth "Betchai" Tamayo-Luc did just that.  Betchai used to teach at the University of St. La Salle’s  Engineering Dept, but being now resident of San Diego, California, she teaches in a high school in her new home city.

Several years ago, she sponsored Ken Rey Pabale, then  a 1st Grade student. Time has fast forwarded indeed, because Ken Rey will even soon leave St. Francis of Assissi School as he is now a graduating student in SFAS. Betchai also added another scholar just this year, Cris John Baja, in Pre-Kindergarten.

Betchai, who is a member of a bloggers group called The Salitype Society, has also inspired the other bloggers to sponsor two kids from what they earn from blog writing. They responded by sponsoring two more scholars, Micah Ramirez and Angelico Abo who are both in Grade 7 now. 

Betchai’s homecoming was exciting for the four scholars, as she brought chocolates as "pasalubongs."  She even spared some bonding time with the scholars, which included a lunch treat at SIR Restaurant in Silay.

And even the school was blessed by her homecoming, as she left a laptop for the school as well.

Thank you, Tita Betchai!
