A total of 482 scholars from four schools received their school materials from the Insular Foundation’s Adopt-A-Scholar Program. Adopted students from Itaas Elementary School, Alabang Elementary School (AES) and Bayanan Elementary School (BES) from Muntinlupa, and Balili Elementary School from La Trinidad, Benguet received school materials consisting of school supplies, uniforms, shoes, and storybooks.
“The students are adopted by Insular Life (InLife) employees and financial advisors who commit to donate a certain amount each year to help the students finish their elementary schooling. Each year, the donations given to scholars are based on the requirements of their current grade level. This way, we are assured that the school materials will be fully used. The top 3 scholars from each school also receive cash awards during the turnover ceremonies,” said Insular Foundation Program Manager Teresita Melad.
During the turnover ceremonies in Alabang and Bayanan Elementary Schools, InLife also presented its “Maperaan” TV commercial featuring Actor Coco Martin, and child wonder Ethan Hariot, who distributed the storybooks to the scholars. The Adopt-A-Scholar Program is one of several educational programs administered by the Insular Foundation that seeks to improve the quality of education in the country and help fellow Filipinos achieve a lifetime for good.
