“Our life before was very hard, and I can still remember my father just made little pesos for our needs, but not enough to sustain it. My parents could not afford to send me to school. Luckily, we have the LCP preschool, so I was enrolled there. LCP continued to support me through high school. Then I was granted a scholarship and graduated with my bachelor’s degree.”
Mikee Beronio, LCP Graduate / LCP Staff
“I was nine years old when my father died. Life was not easy, and my mother tried hard to support our daily needs, but it was not enough. To be able to survive in Dumaguete, I sold peanuts on the streets until one of my relatives suggested I live in the Robert Hanson Home for Boys. Then, I was enrolled in the School on Wheels program until I finished my high school. Now, I am a third year college student through the LCP scholarship program.”
Robert Cadayona, LCP Scholar / SOW and Dorm Beneficiary
“I was a premature baby. I was only 6 months gestation when my mother gave birth to me. My body was not fully developed, especially my leg. My family did not know what to do, because we were just poor. LCP looked for donors for my prosthetic leg so I could be able to walk. I was able to join the sponsorship program to continue my education until they granted a scholarship for my college.”
Ricalyn Vensuelo, LCP Scholar / Handclasp Beneficiary
