Sharing Our Blessings

St. Francis of Assisi School of Silay City, thru the efforts of Tapulanga Foundation, have been richly blessed for several years already with a constant donation of books for the school library from different donors in the Philippines and for the most part, from U.S.A.

The students have grown to enjoy reading that the Book Lovers Club decided to donate of the older books, those that most students have read already, to a nearby public school which has barely a handful of children's reading books.

Hence, last July 19, 2011, one thousand books were donated to the students of Adela Elementary School. It is our hope that these books will allow more children to develop a love for reading.

In August, another one thousand books will be donated by the club to another nearby public school, Cuaycong Elementary School.
