Hapay na Mangga Elementary School is the smallest public school in Taytay, Rizal which has 811 students coming from the different barangays in the area.
In 2009, LEAP chose Hapay na Mangga Elementary School as beneficiary of our Adopt-a-School Project wherein members of LEAP personally sponsored 27 students. The sponsorship covers payment of tuition fee and school supplies for the whole school year. As of this time, LEAP is sponsoring 40 students from Grade 1 up to Grade 6 level.
Last June 2, 2012, we distributed school bags, school supplies and some goodies for our 40 scholars. We were also able to give some gift items to their Principal and Teachers. We cannot describe the happiness in the faces of these children, they can’t thank LEAP enough for all the blessings shared to them. And all that we ask is that they study well.
Of course, this project will not be successful without the support of those members who willingly shared their financial rewards so these 40 children will be able to go to school. We also thank our partner Ways and Means Committee for raising funds for these children. Thank you also to those members who shared their company products and personal donation. I also don’t want to miss to thank a very special person who is always there supporting LEAP and the scholars, Mang Joe may not be a member of our organization but he will always be a part of LEAP.
From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.”
