|Tiwala Kids & Communities believes that education is fundamental to a bright future. Many of our programs are geared towards instilling the love for learning among children in need, helping them improve their academic skills, and providing educational assistance. We find great joy in seeing children embrace and enjoy the value of education in their lives.
One of these children is Mabeth, one of the eight Tiwala full scholars graduating from elementary school on April 6. Mabeth and her mom were from Rapu-Rapu Island and migrated to Legazpi City in 2010 because of domestic violence. When Tiwala first met Mabeth seven years ago, she had dropped out of school and was just attending Tiwala’s supplemental classes in her village. Her mother said she could not afford to enroll her in school. Thus, Tiwala awarded Mabeth a scholarship grant which covers fees, uniforms, supplies, projects, snacks, and other incidental expenses.
