45 Mangyan Children Need School Tuition Funding for 2014-2015 - only $5/month

Posted: Fri, September 19, 2014 | By: Philippines



The following 45 poor but deserving Mangyan children need tuition money - so that they can attend the school year 2014-2015 at San Lorenzo Ruiz Academy in Oriental Mindoro, The Philippines. Additional information on the school can be found on the Facebook page HERE and at Brighter Brain’s archive HERE.

The total number of students at San Lorenzo Ruiz School, which serves the Mangyan indigenous people, is 140 children from Kindergarten to Grade 8. The school requires four (4) teachers: 1 teacher for Kindergarten, 1 for Grade 1-3, 1 for Grade 4-6, and 1 teacher for Grade 7-8. San Lorenzo Ruiz Academy is, by necessity, a private school, so it has to pay the teachers.

Tuition is USD $5.00 per month per each student. This sum goes entirely to teacher’s salaries/honorarium.

(Brighter Brains Institute recently raised enough money from generous sponsors to pay school tuition for 35 pupils. The generous contributors were: “Anonymous” from San Rafael; “Anonymous” from Salt Lake City; Kittredge School; Allison Carpenter and Marina; Hank Pellissier; Melanie, Mark, Mia, Sayla and Ivy; and Zenobia Pellissier Lloyd.)

Many sponsors contributed more than $5/month, to pay for their sponsored child’s lunch. Truly it is very difficult to teach children with empty stomachs.

All sponsors are able to communicate as often as they wish with the child they sponsored via emails to the director, Sally Melendres - sally_melendres@yahoo.com. Sally will print the email letter and let child read it, then she will scan the child’s reply and email that back to the sponsors. Sponsors will also receive quarterly progress reports from their “foster child” plus initial Thank You letters, and Christmas and New Year’s cards. Sponsors are also encouraged to visit the children on Mindoro Island, or to send them clothes, or to buy them a hen (eggs are excellent for nutrition) or to help with medical costs, like the recent de-worming project.

Below are the 46 children that need sponsors. Only $5/month guarantees them an education. Questions can be sent to brighterbrainsinstitute@gmail.com:
