We were delighted to be invited to attend the Graduation and Awards Ceremony at Promise Land Christian School at Payatas, Quezon City. Two of our sponsored kindergarten students graduated with top honors.
In addition, the first top 10 ranking in their individual grades from Kindergarten 1 to Grade IV were our sponsored students. Of the total 50 sponsored students, 21 of them finished strong, meaning that 40% of our students are high scholastic achievers!!
This tells us that parents who scavenger in a dumpsite and their children can’t and shouldn’t be defined by their circumstances. They just need to be afforded opportunities for better education and mentoring to make wise choices. And definitely there is such gratitude and joy written all over the faces of both students and their parents as they experience God’s daily faithfulness and provision to each and every need. God took all the praise and worship!!! – Resty & Mel Enguerra. Read their entire newsletter on IM’s website under “about us/our team/meet our team/the Enguerras.
The Philippines – In 2016, the Department of Education in the Philippines mandated all elementary schools offer computer classes to prepare students for 7th – 12th grade education. Having access to a computer is no longer a luxury. Promise Land Christian School, located in the Payatas Dumpsite, was able to resurrect three old computers, but they frequently freeze. Students crowd the computer area and hall waiting their turn.
We are praying for help to purchase eight computers for the school’s Computer Lab. This will allow students to keep pace with technology and allow them access to information necessary for advancing education. It will also motivate these young minds, helping them realize there is a world of possibilities for them.
Please partner with us to impact these children and their futures. Each computer is $500. To donate, click the donate button and select Southeast Asia in the donation drop-down menu.
