Thankful for the Opportunity to Help

Tapulanga Foundation donors Cecille Ledesma and Gina Severino-Regalado met their scholars for the first time in St. Francis of Assisi School of Silay City last July 10.

I consider myself blessed to be able to give Kimberly the opportunity to better herself through education. She is a sweet girl. Kudos to Tapulanga Foundation for giving me this opportunity.

Cecille has been a TF donor since 2010, starting with sponsoring a child to join the yearly Silay Summer Workshop of the foundation. In 2013, she decided to sponsor a child, Kimberly, to start Pre-Kindergarten. Today Kimberly continues to study in SFAS and is now in 1st grade.

This is Leanne. Her timid smile and whispered thank you created the sunshine for another grey and gloomy day :) My note for her today: "Fairy tales can come true. You gotta make them happen, it all depends on you." - Tiana (Princess and the Frog)

Gina started to support TF thru the Babes of Bacolod in Los Angeles when she attended their first yard sale fundraiser in 2004. In 2013, she sponsored her first lunch meal scholar.  She has been sponsoring Leanne’s lunch meal since last year.
