Ang awiting ito’y para lang sa’yo
(This song is just for you)
At kung maubos ang tinig, di magsisisi
(And if my voice runs out, I won’t regret)
Dahil iyong narinig , mula sa labi ko
(because you personally heard, from my lips)
(thank you, thank you)
-A line from the song Salamat by Yeng Constantino
Truly the day was filled with gratitude and smiles as ten (10) scholars of Sta Catalina College Binan Laguna was personally visited by their sponsor, the AON Philippines.
The children rendered a song and dance number to show their appreciation and while some personally promised to study hard. With a generous heart and life example, Sir Andrew Minnitt, CEO of AON Philippines gave a message, he shared his personal stories when he was studying and inspired the children to balance fun (playing) and education (studying). Before the meeting ends, the children received additional school supplies and grocery care packages for their families as they go home.
Springboard Foundation is thankful to have partnered with people and companies that share’s their resources, time and talents but more importantly their personal experience in life as well. Their involvement and touch with the scholars shows their commitment to change and uplift lives of these children and their families in the future. Thank you Sir Andrew Minnitt and AON Philippines team!
