The Tan Yan Kee Foundation team brought early Christmas cheers to children (and adults alike) to Barangay Balete in Nueva Vizcaya last December 15. Balete is also the site of a seven-classroom school being built by the Foundation and named Tan Yan Kee Elementary School.
Residents of Barangay Balete, Santa Fe, Nueva Vizcaya, and its surrounding communities have a new reason to rejoice. A new seven-classroom school building is set to rise at the heart of the barangay – just a stone’s throw away from the barangay hall. The said structure will replace the facilities of the Balete Primary School which have long been condemned as unsafe due to massive termite infestation.
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.
