Letter from one of our benefactors

Dear Visionaries,

On behalf of the Quezon Hill Community Church (QHCC) here in Baguio City, Philippines, we express our sincerest gratitude and appreciation to the Education Foundation of the Philippines [EFP] for choosing our Church as among the recipients of your noble program. Thank you for the school supplies, bags, and other educational stuffs you have sent for the children of our church. You have certainly put smiles on their faces and brought in joy to their parents too being unexpected partakers of your gifts. We initially distributed the supplies on December 20, 2015 during our Christmas Sunday Celebration and made another round on January 10, 2016. There are still a few items left which we intend to give as prizes during our children’s recognition program or as the need arises.

It was truly a delight seeing the children aglow in joy and excitement as they received their share. To the sponsors and donors, to the entire EFP staff and to everyone of you there who helped ensure the success of such noble outreach program, we are greatly honored and blessed by your gesture of love, thoughtfulness and generosity. We pray that this special project of yours will prosper and grow, so that many more will benefit from it.

Sincerely,

Pastor Jan Marigza

Letter from one of our Visionaries

letter

This post was written by one of our younger visionaries, Therese. She wrote this letter for her English class assignment and we decided to share it. We hope you find it as powerful and inspiring as we do.

Here it is:

Today there are countless schools in the Philippines that lack necessary materials to give children a good education. The success and the future of children should be valued. The Education Foundation of the Philippines, launched this summer, is taking action to help decrease and stop this problem and you can to. Although we sometimes take education for granted, others, dream of that education that we get every day. Generally the foundation supports underprivileged children in the Philippines to get the education they will need in the near future. They are supporting schools in the provinces in the Philippines and their goal is to expand and contribute to other schools in the country. Currently, the foundation has been assisting several elementary schools including the Calapacuan Elementary School who are in need of supplies for classrooms. There is about 32 classrooms, 41 teachers and 1,670 students from Kindergarten to sixth grade. In December of 2010 in that same school a fire occurred and the science classroom and the equipment in it was destroyed. Because of that unfortunate event the school had to remodel and are still lacking funds for the science equipment and other materials in classrooms.

By donating money or school supplies you will support the classrooms with needed supplies that are essential for daily work and assignment. You are helping raise awareness and the importance of education for the betterment of the children. The foundation wants to assist students to succeed academically for they are the next generation to make a difference in our world. Through contributing to this need you are helping the children achieve their dreams and to succeed in life. The Education Foundation of the Philippines invites you to join their vision on the importance of education. So join and become a visionary! (edfoundationph.org)

VISIONARY

Visionary

Have you ever wondered why we call ourselves and our supporters VISIONARIES?

It is because our supporters embody the definition of a VISIONARY. When we think of a VISIONARY, we imagine someone who lives life inspired and optimistic to make a change in the world. VISIONARIES are creative, inventive, innovative, and idealistic. We know that each and every one of our supporters are all these characteristics.

We believe that our VISIONARIES believe in similar core values as we do and they strive to make changes in the world. By becoming a VISIONARY and supporting our mission, YOU are making a change and YOU are changing the world.

Become a VISIONARY!!

GEMS!!

Gems Have you ever wondered why we call our children GEMS? Simple. We believe that children encompass every aspect that a GEM signifies.

Let us explain further: GEMS are magnificently created, rare and unique from one another. GEMS are treasured, valued, and admired for their excellence and brilliance. Finally, GEMS are not only beautiful, they are also durable and able to withstand changes in their environment. Are these not similar qualities that children hold? Children are unique and should be celebrated for their differences. They are meant to be treasured, valued, and admired for their unlimited potentials. Finally, children are resilient; they are durable to changes and strong enough to withstand change in their environment.

We believe in the value of every child and strive to assist every child in the Philippines!

As Visionaries we treasure these GEMS? Do you?

Become a Visionary!
