Support Aral Pinoy Project Baon (Schooling Assistance)

 
Modesty aside, prior to finishing my doctoral studies in ASI on May 2011 (last year), I was blessed to have my two masteral studies in DLSU (year 2000 and year 2005).  On March 13, 2012 ( seven years later) I got a letter from Br. Narciso S. Erguiza, Jr. FSC, President and Chancellor of DLSU, and offers me this prayer:


May you be as Lasallian as ever,
and your actions be fuelled by faith.
May your heart be aflame for service,
and your life be one in the mission.

May you continue to make
Lasallian education in the Philippines
truly meaningful not only today (present time)
but for a century more (future time).

Let God's blessing for every Lasallian
be returned blessings to others,
and let your work be your song of praise
to the Lord, forevermore.

Aral Pinoy is launching the Aral Pinoy Project Baon and is now searching and accepting sponsorships for the school year 2016-2017 and school year 2017-2018. 

See our Aral Pinoy Scholars here since school year 2011-2012: http://aralpinoy.blogspot.com/2011/06/aral-pinoy-project-baon-scholars.html

The AP scholars are kids of farmers/fishermen in Batangas who some of them have not able to get even an elementary education.

AP is helping them so that in the future when they will have families of their own they will not repeat the same cycle of not being able to send their kids to school.

AP wishes that they will be able to finish at least in high school education and to be able to graduate in college is already so much blessings.

Please help them, share and find generous individuals like you.

You may text me at 09178661006 or email me at ingles.antonio@gmail.com

Thank you very much and God bless you more!

A Reflection by Karen Tan (grabbed without permission from her FB account)


Aral Pinoy goes to Sitio Taguisan on March 26, 2016...


March 24, Thursday, while doing Bisita Iglesia with my cousin, i was looking around the churches and there were tarpauline saying feed the hungry that caught my attention. At the back of my mind, i am already planning an outreach program to celebrate my birthday this coming May. I already know whom to tap for donations and will ask family members and some closest friend to help. Wrote down my plan in a small notebook before i went to bed.

March 25, Good Friday. Woke up, checked Facebook and there the first thing i saw was the post of my former campus ministry [volunteer] coordinator Antonio Ingles that he needs volunteers and donations of 100 cupcakes are also needed for Aral Pinoy's feeding program on Black Saturday. Without any hesitation, I replied to the post and said YES I can make it to the day of the outreach and that the 100 cupcakes is on me. While having breakfast, i suddenly remembered that our pantry is already short of eggs and flour. I just prayed and asked for guidance. Guidance that i would not make any mistakes, that the eggs that we currently have would fit 3 recipes, and that flour would just be exact or enough for the recipe. Lastly, presence of mind in dividing the batter so that I could yield minimum of 100 cupcakes (kahit saktong 100, ok lang kahit wala ng sobra for mom to eat ok lang she would understand). Thank God, I produced more than 100 cupcakes. :)

I have no idea where Sitio Taguisan is, when i got a text message from Sir Toni that we would meet in St. Therese of The Child Jesus Parish Church in Marcos Highway, I was so happy. I am a devotee since i was in high school, and it would be my first time to to this church, I was actually more excited to make a wish more than anything else. :)

Sitio Taguisan, first reaction "o ok pala dito parang exclusive village sa bundok" but no. We just parked somewhere in that village and went to the mountain.

I am so humbled to be part of this outreach program of Aral Pinoy.

To Sir Toni, thank you for the opportunity. Thank you for still believing in me that i still do have a heart of a volunteer. Thank you, that you served as my eye opener that i still can bake even though i was at this point that i wanted to sell out all my baking equipment because i have already lost passion. Thank you for bringing the old me back again. Just like Jesus, i have risen :)

To my new found friends, Kimberly Co, Juvelyn Samson, Andrea Des Dangeros Tria, Sheena Katrina Aragon Orihuela, Crizel Ruth Ghelmae Ricaro, thank you, thank you for your super grand welcome to me. More volunteer work for us! :)

To Sitio Tuguisan, thank you for having us. Hope everyone had a great time. Hope to be able to visit you guys again.

Funds started training on vegetable gardening


Bahay Kubo Vegetable Gardeners October 11, 2014

2011 National Nutrition Survey reported that 23% of Filipino kids claimed to be food insecure. 5 out of 10 are suffering from malnutrition. Nationwide more than 3 million of them are suffering from this health problem.

Moreover, climate change affects all four dimensions of food security: 1. availability, 2. accessibility, 3. utilization and 4. stability. The challenge now is to identify a pathway to achieving food security in the context of climate change. This demands major interventions at local level.

ARALPINOY.ORG INC (a.k.a. Aral Pinoy) is committed to feed 3,000 malnourished Filipino children both from Cavite and Lipa by helping their parents to cultivate sustainable gardening system to address household food security that provides micro-nutrient-rich and fresh vegetables for a year.

Aral Pinoy (Education Philippines) donors  have displayed their generosity to help poor Filipino household to feed its members with fresh vegetables. This demo-project was initiated with a capital of $505.00 from four generous donors.

We need to raise $5,000.00 to feed 3,000 poor Filipino children with fresh vegetables, but we had already made our first disbursement on the ground so that we could immediately begin to provide initial help to the parents of these poor Filipino children in Batangas.




Bahay Kubo Vegetable Gardeners October 12, 2014

On October 11 and 12, 2014, Aral Pinoy (Education Philippines) organized a two-day FREE hands-on seminar/training on sustainable vegetable gardening system among 30 parents to produce micro-nutrient-rich and fresh vegetables. It is an actual demo, hands-on experience and guided supervision on how to cultivate in a 50sqm lot the 18 vegetables found in a popular Filipino folk song "Bahay Kubo" (Nipa Hut): Singkamas, Talong, Sigarilyas, Mani, Sitaw, Bataw, Patani, Kundol, Patola, Upo, Kalabasa, Labanos, Mustasa, Sibuyas, Kamatis, Bawang, Luya, Linga.



Bahay Kubo Vegetable Garden October 12, 2014

With as little as $5 USD (₱250 PHP) you can help provide 18 kinds of fresh vegetables to one poor Filipino household and save their lives.

We will keep you updated on how your donations are being used in the coming months.

Thank you again for your generosity.

Feed 3,000 Poor Filipino Kids with Fresh Vegetables

Summary
2011 National Nutrition Survey reported that 23% of Filipino kids claimed to be food insecure. 5 out of 10 are suffering from malnutrition. Nationwide more than 3 million of them are suffering from this health problem. To 3,000 malnourished Filipino kids from Cavite and Lipa, Aral Pinoy (Education Philippines) will help their parents to cultivate sustainable gardening system to address household food security by providing them micro-nutrient-rich and fresh vegetables for a year.


What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
In spite of all the national government's efforts today, there is still a need to come up with stronger local household-led initiatives and concrete action to address food insecurity. A Filipino household consists of five members. However, many parents from the households of Cavite and Lipa in rural areas have no financial means to cultivate sustainable vegetable garden.


How will this project solve this problem?
Aral Pinoy will organize a FREE hands-on seminar on sustainable vegetable gardening system among 100 gardeners/parents to produce micro-nutrient-rich and fresh vegetables. It is an actual demo, hands-on experience and guided supervision on how to cultivate in a 50sqm lot the 18 vegetables found in a popular Filipino folk song "Bahay Kubo" (Nipa Hut): Singkamas, Talong, Sigarilyas, Mani, Sitaw, Bataw, Patani, Kundol, Patola, Upo, Kalabasa, Labanos, Mustasa, Sibuyas, Kamatis, Bawang, Luya, Linga.

Potential Long Term Impact
The bigger goal is not only to make one Filipino household less hungry but to end hunger for all Filipinos. Through quality EDUCATION, life-giving RELATIONSHIPS and being true FILIPINO, this project ensures that the 100 gardeners/parents cultivate sustainable vegetable garden to address household food security, improve access to a variety of micro-nutrient-rich and fresh vegetables and generate income to improve the quality of life and livelihood specially among those in rural areas.

This project has started accepting donations on Monday, September 01, 2014.
