PUSONG PINOY SUMMER READING CAMP


Pusong Pinoy is supporting an exciting Summer Reading Camp initiative to improve "readership" in Pit-ao Elementary School in San Clemente, Tarlac.  This camp is a wonderful community effort which will run during the school holidays.  Thanks to CLAUDIA TOLEDO, School Head, who paved the way to make this happen. The teachers of Pit-ao ES created an interesting two-week reading module with the aim of uplifting reading proficiency in their school. The PTA offered support by volunteering to cook delicious meals daily for the 80 children who are attending the camp. 

We would like to thank PP Hero MAYO MUNAR, who initiated fundraising in Hong Kong. His aim was to raise awareness of the plight of children in the Philippines and to raise funds to support these children. Thank you to all the Hong Kong Heroes who offered support. You are all incredible! 

The funds were used to provide groceries and other items to support the Reading Camp. Other items from donors were also handed over on the same day.  Thank you also to all Pusong Pinoy Superheroes who made this exciting initiative possible! Together, we can make a difference.

LITTLE LIGHTS' MESSAGE TO PUSONG PINOY


 
 
 

Little Lights shared these photos to Pusong Pinoy with this message:

"Thank you so much, Pusong Pinoy, for all the educational materials! This meant a lot to our ministry work for these children. God bless you for all that you do to help our marginalized children in the Philippines!" 

Little Lights Ministry has been a Pusong Pinoy recipient since 2010.  It planted its humble beginnings in February 2010 at Sitio Tawi-Tawi along the riverbanks of the Pasig-Cainta boundary where drug dealing, drinking sprees, gambling, and street brawls are a way of life. Out of this concern, Little Lights was born. As the ministry continued its mission, they came across out-of-school and never-schooled children, which led them to start "Learning Lessons," a progressive Montessori-type learning system for ages 2 to 15 years. Little Lights currently serves more than 1,000 underprivileged Filipino children and their love ones to have a better way of life. 

Deeply inspired and motivated by the works of Little Lights Ministry, Pusong Pinoy has been sponsoring their feeding and learning program since 2010. Click HERE to read about other PP projects for Little Lights Ministry.

PHOTO CREDIT:  ARNOLD MELORIN

We are thrilled to launch our annual Christmas gift-giving project, PROJECT PAMASKO NG PUSONG PINOY.  On its 6th year, we need kind-hearted HEROES to help us provide comfort to financially-challenged children in the following rural areas:

PAMPANGA
Lubao Elementary School

BATANGAS
Parish Social Action Committee

BENGUET
Kabuyao Elementary School
Besong Saddle Elementary School

Together, let's collect tsinelas (slippers) this Christmas so that 2,000 children would not have to go barefoot and to make sure that each kid have a brand new pair of slippers this Christmas.

We are also hoping to raise funds towards the purchase of food items to 300 disadvantaged families in Batangas so that they may have a MERRY CHRISTMAS this year.

PP HERO PAT KEDSLIE'S
BIRTHDAY BLOWOUT AT LITTLE LIGHTS

PAT KEDSLIE of Newton Mearns in Scotland, celebrated her birthday the Pusong Pinoy way! It was such a great day as 100 children from the Little Lights Ministry in Pasig gathered for an afternoon of fun, games, storytelling and treats.
 
Pastor Joseph Casaje and his wife, Sister Jeanette of Little Lights, along with volunteers organized Pat's birthday celebration at the Rovihas Covered Court, Tramo St., Barangay Rosario, Pasig City. Our very own PP Team Leaders Douglas Inness, Florence Temporal and Marty Goitia also joined and helped in the celebration. Rey Bufi and Mary Grace Soriano of The Storytelling Project also attended the event for an interactive storytelling and warm-up fun.
 
The party started with fun songs organized by master storyteller, Rey Bufi, followed by an interactive story.  It was a wonderful activity which kept the children enthralled as it unfolded. The children had so much fun - singing, listening and laughing.  They also played games.  Happy faces all around. The egg and spoon race proved to be popular.  The children had an opportunity to thank Pat by signing her birthday banner.  They were also treated with delicious meal - spaghetti, chicken kebab, cake, donuts, juice and treats. It was a fun-packed day for children and adults alike.

We are truly grateful to Pat for celebrating her birthday with the children from Little Lights.  Thanks to Little Lights and The Storytelling Project for their untiring efforts to make Pat's birthday blowout  a success.  Such an event only works with teamwork and commitment.
 
If you would like to celebrate your birthday the Pusong Pinoy way, bringing smiles to children as they share your celebration, please email us at pusongpinoyorg@gmail.com.
