Lao Foundation inked 3 Memorandum of Agreements (MOAs) on September 22, 2016 with ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation (new partner-foundation), Philippine Science High School Foundation, and Maria Lena Buhay Memorial Foundation (both current partner-foundations). The projects included in these MOAs will fall under LFI’s educational assistance/scholarship program.
A welcome addition to the list of LFI partners is ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc. (ALKFI), who visited Lao Foundation last March 10, 2016. The MOA assists, for school year 2016-17, 6 scholars of ALKFI’s Bantay Bata 163 Program under the “Bantay Edukasyon Scholarship Project”. This is an educational intervention to bring back hope for child abuse survivors.
Lao Foundation also renewed its MOA with Philippine Science High School Foundation, Inc. (PSHSFI) for school year 2016-2017, to assist 20 in-need scholars under PSHSFI’s Godparent program.
Likewise, LFI has also worked with Maria Lena Buhay Memorial Foundation Inc. (MLBMFI), an oral school for the hearing impaired, in assisting one indigent student. This month, LFI was able to refer 4 new students from Bagumbayan Elementary School and Camp Crame Elementary School. These children were assessed to be in need of therapy for their speech difficulty. However, due to their families’ financial situation, they could not avail of the intervention needed.
LFI is honored to be working with these partners.
