Osmeña promises school buildings, too

The 60 pre-schoolers of the Antipuluan Elementary School in Bago City will no longer have to use musty dilapidated classrooms with roofs about to cave in and rickety desks that could give them splinters.

That is because Aklat Gabay at Aruga Tungo sa Pag-Angat at Pag-asa Foundation, chaired by presidential sister, Pinky Aquino Abellada, turned over a fully furnished two-room preschool building cum library complete with books and learning materials to the Antipulan school yesterday.

Abellada turned over the P700,000 preschool building funded by the San Miguel Corp. to the Antipuluan Elementary School in the morning and another one at the  Crispino V. Ramos Elementary School in Bacolod City  funded by Dr. Vicki  Belo’s Ike and Nena Belo Foundation  in the afternoon, which  were built under the supervision of  the Negrense Volunteers for Change.

Belo stresses
importance of education


“My father believes in teaching people how to fish rather than giving them fish. He always told me not to give money, give an education that will last a lifetime,” celebrity cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo said yesterday.

Belo was in Bacolod for the turnover of a two-room preschool building, funded by her Ike and Nena Belo Foundation, to the Crispino V. Ramos Elementary School.

She made the donation through Aklat Gabay at Aruga Tungo sa Pag-Angat at Pag-asa Foundation chaired by presidential sister Pinky Aquino-Abellada.moremoremore
