Be A Yellow Boat

Dear Friends, 

In March 2012, the Center for External Linkages, Alumni and Development (CELAD) of the Office of the Vice-Chancellor for Development and Institutional Relations (DIR) learned of the touching story of children who have to swim in open water to get an education. Located in remote island communities, these children bravely face the perils of swimming through mangroves and changing tides every single school day.

The story was told to us by Mr. Aristopher Lipnica and Dr. Antonio Ingles, Jr. We were moved all the more to learn that, from their own compassion and generosity, some CSB students gave a donation of 4 boats to the children in one of the three identified island communities.  

Known as the Yellow Boat of Hope Project, the story of the plight of these children has been shared through and only in Facebook (FB). Having generated so many clicks and support on FB in such a short span of time, the Yellow Boat story spread and was featured in GMA, ABS-CBN, IBC 13, Al Jazeera, CNN, Yahoo! Philippines, to name a few. Please check the following links:
Our Invitation.

On Wednesday, 22 August 2012 from 1:00-2:30 pm, DLS-CSB through the Linkages Office has invited The Yellow Boat Foundation President, Dr. Anton Lim and Chief Storyteller, Mr. Jay Jaboneta, to tell us the story first hand. Venue is at Room 900, School of Design and Arts Campus.

Aral Pinoy Logo...

Aral Pinoy (AP) Logo painting was commissioned by Antonio Ingles, Jr., Ph.D., AP Founder/President.

The official logo of ARALPINOY.ORG INC consists of the feather pen, the book and the sun rising from the horizon, which all put together symbolize hope for knowledge and education, at the same time demonstrate a true Filipino spirit.

The original design of the logo is creatively done through the generosity of Mr. Eduardo B. Verzosa, a Pinoy Norway-based professional web/graphic designer.

Thanks for the opportunity! I had so much fun in making this!

Spending Independence Day with the Underprivileged Kids of Payatas...

Jecel Censoro, of Check My School Org., said, "What more could I ask for but more birthday to share with others. Thanks to great friends who spent their independence day with underprivileged kids of Payatas. Thank you too for the many sponsors who made this day possible through their donations and support for the kids. Thank you all."

"Thank you also to Dr. Antonio Ingles, Founder of Aral Pinoy, for giving some school supplies to kids and for sharing to them some words of encouragement."
When Dr. Ingles asked the kids about what are the reasons why they should study harder, they give the following important answers: (1) to improve their lives and living condition, (2) to help their parents in their day to day struggle to live a decent life and (3) for them to learn, have better education, be able to stand on their own feet and ultimately become positive contributors to the society.

Support the 2nd Year of Aral Pinoy Project Baon

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). Today, 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 2nd Year of Aral Pinoy Project Baon and is now searching and accepting sponsorships for the school year 2012-2013!

See our Aral Pinoy Scholars here for this school year 2011-2012:

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

Thank you very much and God bless you more!

Pag-abot (Outreach)

Pag-abot sa Pamayanan (Community Outreach) sa 
Munting Salo-salo (through Feeding Activity)

Pag-abot (Outreach) is an initiative of the volunteers, the staff (cooks/salesclerks) of the canteen concessionaire of DLS-CSB who are busy working from Monday to Saturday. Most of them have been with DLS-CSB for more than 10 years already until they saw in Facebook what Aral Pinoy ( has been doing and felt that they would also want to do Pag-abot (Outreach). Then they expressed their intention to Aral Pinoy (AP) Founder, Antonio Ingles, PhD their desire to be of help via community outreach through feeding of 100 children on a Sunday, February 19, 2012.

Aral Pinoy (AP) coordinated through Liza de Jesus (extreme right) and Arnet Teneso (not in the picture) the PSAC representatives, and they generously accommodated and assisted the volunteers who joined the community outreach through feeding of 100 children in Banaybanay, Lipa City. The volunteers did the marketing, cooking and serving of the menu they prepared a day before going to Lipa. All the necessary ingredients and items needed were already bought and all the kitchen wares/equipment needed were prepared.






They left Manila by 7AM for Lipa. Cooking was done in the venue at San Vicente Ferrer (SVF) Parish Church, where PSAC’s representatives allowed the volunteers to use the parish’s kitchen. After the children's fun-filled games and simple feeding activity, the volunteers were assisted by PSAC’s representatives and some members visiting significant members of the community and places in the area. They left Lipa and arrive in Manila by 6PM.

Food cost for feeding, transportation expenses and driver's pay were sponsored by AP.

Calling generous sponsors/donors who would like to support their next feeding mission for the food they will prepare for 100 kids. For Php 3,000 - Php 4,000 pesos you can already help feed 100 kids!

For inquiry please text us: 09178661006

Inspiring story: 

Last Monday Dec 19, 2011, 8 Students from De La Salle - College of Saint Benilde created a FB group called HELP CDO AND ILIGAN - CSB, then they raised Php120,000 (cash & worth of goods just for that day...)

On Tuesday, Dec 20, it was in Yahoo News! A College of Saint Benilde Student Carla Barretto holds a sign as she asks for donations from fellow students for victims of floods in Cagayan De Oro (CDO) and nearby Iligan 

By Wednesday, Dec 21, they made an appoinment meeting with Ayala Malls' representatives...

By Tuesday & Wednesday, Dec 27-28, you would find them in a station in Glorieta 3 where they would do caroling in behalf of the victims of Sendong in Cagayan De Oro (CDO), Iligan and Dumaguete.

Students from other schools, like University of Santo Tomas, Lyceum of the Philippines University and Polytechnic University of the Philippines joined CSB. 

All in all, the group managed to collect about P150,000 in cash and P100,000 worth of relief goods.
