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.

We are hopeful that our scholar takes full advantage of the generosity of all who donate to the SAS Ai scholarship fund. It is a good program. The best among the many being offered in Tagudin right now. The big difference that sets SAS Ai's program apart from all other scholarship programs is their integrity. This is the main reason why we support the mission of SAS Ai.

SASAi is a nonprofit organization, with funds and programs managed by its own trustees or directors, established to act educational, charitable, religious and other activities serving the common welfare. It's work is carried on by its own staff or individuals to whom grants of money are allocated for use in specific projects. SASAi programs developed many new educational initiatives to assist poor but talented students. It donates scholarships to deserving students. SASAi serves as a symbol of true kind-hearted Tagudinians. And I'm very proud to say that I am a part of SASAi.
I love you SASAi and God bless!!!!!!

Before, I, Mariella Stephanie Lyne C. tacho is only dreaming to study in SAS. I was just like a crazy girl because i am longing for something which is impossible to happen. I don't know what is really the definite reason why I want to set my foot in SAS. Maybe, it can provide me a quality education or better future.
Nowadays, many poor yet bright students wants to continue their studies in SAS. That's why, I consider myself a fortunate one because i received a blessing that can help me a lot and move forward.
THANKS SASAI. Thanks to the people behind this. I salute you. Just continue your good deeds Sir\ ma'am and the Almighty will reward you.
The word thank you is not enough to express my overwhelming gratitude. I promise, I'll do all to repay your unconditional support and assistance.
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!;)

For us, we are so lucky as an scholar because they give us chance to study in a very known and a private school SAINT AUGUSTINE'S SCHOOL (SAS). all of them are very supportive for all of us as an scholars,they give all the things that we need and always giving us inspirational advice that can help us in our studies and also to become a better person.the also serves as our mentors and they are the reason why i and other scholars experience life as an students of SAS. that's why i can say that I am so lucky and thankful because i was chosen as one of the scholars of SASAI.
So the word thank you is not enough to pay all of their sacrifices for us..:)

I am so thankful for the great opportunity that SASAi had given to me, this scholarship helped me a lot. This helped me study in a private school, provided our needs in order for us to make our studies well and they are always there for us to advice, help, support and monitor our performances in school.
