Day Care students, as young as they are, are also in need of proper school supplies to assist their learning. The Tan Yan Kee Foundation, Inc. (TYKFI) recognizes those needs that’s why the foundation also reached out to Day Care centers in Nueva Vizcaya, as part of the Adopt-a-School Program last November 11, 2014. Bags with notebooks, pad papers, pencils, and pair of slippers were handed out.
Present in the event were Nueva Vizcaya Gov. Ruth R. Padilla, Dupax del Norte Mayor Antonio G. Palugod and Vice Mayor Victorino V. Prado, Jr., Dupax Del Norte OIC MSWDO Mr. Nerio D. Fragata, Dupax del Norte DSWD Municipal Link Mr. Jayjay Zalun, Dupax del Sur Mayor Ruben S. Basconcillo Jr., Dupax del Sur Vice Mayor Luis E. Binay-an, Dupax del Sur MSWDO Mrs. Caridad DV Fregillana, and Dupax del Sur DSWD Municipal Link Mr. Jaypee Aquino.
Gov. Ruth Padilla emphasized how the foundation has been supporting the government objectives: “One of the CSR of the Foundation [is] education (belief in the progress of the nation through education). TYKFI have constructed school buildings, donated computers and educational television infrastructures, concrete path way and even tire path going up to the school. [TYKFI provides] support to the program on education (13-point agenda of the Prayers N Faith).”
Mayor Antonio G. Palugod commented, “These educational materials are of a great help to our pupils and parents and most especially to our teachers (because most of the time our teachers are even providing school supplies to these pupils out of their own pockets). Thank you for the Tan Yan Kee Foundation- to their Chairman and President, Dr. Lucio C. Tan.”
Dupax Del Sur Mayor Ruben S. Basconcillo Jr., also expressed his gratitude towards the foundation, “Malaking pasa-lamat to the Tan Yan Kee Foundation, it’s an early Christmas gift to these pupils. [Pupils], take good care of these materials.” Furthermore, Vice Mayor Luis E. Binay-an, claimed that these pupils will have a fruitful education with the help of these materials.
