Mrs. Jerebeth Abordaje Meets Her Scholar for the First Time!

Last June 30, TF donor Jerebeth Abordaje visited St. Francis of Assisi School of Silay City for the first time and met her 7th grade scholar, Alkin Sellado.  Ms. Jerebeth joined the 60 Scholar in 30 Days Challenge 2016 last summer.

"I was happy and excited to meet Alkin in person. Being able to help someone attain a quality education is a privilege for me because I want to give hope that someone's life or a family for that matter will someday be economically better. I pray that Alkin will persevere to do his best with this opportunity for his sake, his family and his future generation."  by Jerebeth M. Abordaje

Dine for a Cause 2016 at Fogo

Last July 5, Tapulanga Foundation had its first restaurant-engaging fundraising event at Fogo in Bacolod City.  Fogo donated 20% of their food sales for that day to the foundation. The funds raised will benefit the scholars who are joining after school programs of St. Francis of Assisi School of Silay City like sports (Football, Volleyball and Taekwondo) and Boy Scouts. 

To Fogo, thank you so much for partnering with Tapulanga Foundation for this event.  And a bigger THANK YOU to all the family and friends who supported the event by dining at Fogo!
