Our SSAP JPIC SCHOlars in our Partner Schools
We thank the Santuario de San Antonio Parish, through its SSAP Foundation Inc., for generously allocating a budget of Php1.3 Million for the JPIC Outreach Ministry’s SCHOlarship Program.
EDUCATION, coupled with faith in God, determination and hard work, is one of the most effective tools that offer equal opportunity for all.
However — the high cost of education and cost of living — limits the number of deserving students from marginalized families who could benefit from this worthwhile program.
The approved budget covers 26 Vocational-Technical scholars who hopefully will become productive Kristianong Mamamayan — and benefit not only from the tuition (partial or full), food and transportation allowances, but more particularly from the Spiritual Moral-Values Formation Program which the SSAP JPIC SCHOlarship Program offers on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month.
Vocational Technical training, skills and conduct development will give the son or daughter of the unemployed, the minimum wage earner, farmer, fisherman, a construction worker, janitress, driver, traffic enforcer, canteen helper, garbage collector and dishwasher a beacon of hope and opportunity that will allow them to uplift their families from the clutches of poverty and despair.
Our partner schools — Don Bosco Technical Institute in Makati for male and females, Manila (formerly Maligaya) Institute for Culinary Arts and Institutional Services (MICARS) in Manilafor females, Punlaan School in San Juan (2nd Year) for females, Monark Foundation in Laguna for males and females, Our Lady of Guadalupe College in Mandaluyong for males and females -produce capable automotive,fitter machinists/seamen, electromechanical technicians, chefs, restaurant staff, and caregivers.
We appeal for sponsorships for an additional ELEVEN (11) Vocational Technicalscholar applicants who have been interviewed and highly recommended by the JPIC SCHOlarship Committee. Our approximate cost for each scholar is Php48,000. Donations to the SSAP Foundation Inc. – FAO JPIC SCHOlarship Fund are pooled together. Any assistance is most welcome – no amount too big or small.
JPIC Socio-Pastoral Worker Ms Jackie may be reached at 843-8830. Members from the JPIC SCHO Committee are available to meet with you should you have any questions or concerns.
The effects of your generosity are far reaching! Helping the youth in one way or another makes a difference in the lives of a family, a community and ultimately, our country.
Help us, kind readers, fellow parishioners and churchgoers, by sharing your abundant blessings with those who have the talent but were not blessed with the means to attain their goals for themselves and their families.
With gratitude and prayers,
The SSAP-JPIC SCHOlarship Committee / MC / MVR
