MANILA, June 23 — The lives of 10 students who belong to the Manuvu Tribe of Libungan, Cotabato are about to change for the better.
They have been accepted as scholars at Tuloy sa Don Bosco School of Tuloy Foundation Inc. (TFI) based in Alabang, Muntinlupa City, through the generous approval of its founder and president Father Marciano Rocky Evangelista, SDB.
This was made possible through the assistance of the Philippine Army (PA) which has a standing partnership with TFI via the Pinoy Batang Bayani Program.
The acceptance of Indigenous People Students would be a record first in the services rendered by TFI since its existence in 1993.
This development came as a breakthrough when Princess Emerjell L. Humabad of Ilelema Council of Timulys visited the PA's Civil-Military Operations Group based here to seek any form of assistance in favor of her constituents.
She also paid a courtesy call on Father Evangelista who has a soft spot for children who are very much willing to sacrifice to attain their dreams of a better tomorrow not only for themselves but for the whole tribe.
The PA is grateful of this collaboration among the Department of Social Welfare and Development of Cotabato, Manuvu Tribe and TFI which proves that concern for the Filipino youth transcends cultural differences. (PNA)
