San Luis, Pampanga.

A total of 854 students which belong to the 4P’s of DSWD were bright-eyed as they each accepted a bag with notebooks, pad papers, pencils, and pair of slippers from the foundation last August 30, 2014.

“True generosity has no strings attached. Generosity is giving more than you can and pride is taking less than you need. The manner of giving shows the character of the giver more than the gift itself,” an excerpt from the opening speech in Hampipila Elementary School, Leyte during the school supplies giving ceremony last August 5-7, 2014.
Tan Yan Kee Foundation, Inc. joined in the “Adopt-a- School” program in providing school supplies to pupils and students of disadvantage schools. This project aims to provide pupils and students basic school supplies for them to attend schooling continuously.
