Programs: High school graduation

Involvement in community activities to promote cultural appreciation, such as, the celebration of town fiestas.

Mission:
To help bright, promising, and academically motivated 8th grade youth who come from poor families get a good high school education at SAS by sponsoring their 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades of high school through scholarship fund donations.
Results:
We have so far graduated six scholars. We have a total of 22 kids in varying grades attending high school. We have successfully facilitated emergency assistance to victims of typhoon Peping with voluntarily donated funds. We have successfully participated in the SAS school centennial celebrations, putting up our own booth to disseminate information, recruit applicants. We hosted a community picnic, crowned the fiesta queen, donated her queen's trophy, and sponsored a centennial ball. We have involved the scholars and their parents in the outreach to the community activities. We held educational excursions for the kids during their school break. We have encouraged members of our board of trustees to visit with the Field Team and the scholars when they go home to the Philippines on vacation from their overseas domiciles.
