supports Pulang Lupa's expanding vision of providing educational,
artistic, and cultural opportunities and a venue for its related
Starting school year June
2001, the foundation launched a program of educational assistance
to the studentry of the barangays of Lumingon and Lusacan in
the town of Tiaong, province of Quezon.
As in many of the barangays
in rural Philippines, chronic economic want has deprived many
families of the ability to continue the education of their children.
Despite the availability of occasional scholarships or barely
manageable affordability of basic tuitions, many are unable to
pursue or continue their education because of the cumulative
costs of transportation, meals, books, supplies, school projects
and other school-related activities and needs.
The Pulang Lupa Foundation's
program of educational assistance will be in the form of scholarships
and/or the Educational Assistance Funds.
In dollars, the estimated
costs of full collegiate scholarchips - which includes tuition,
books, transportation, board and lodging allowance - range from
$700-$1,500/year. The Educational Assistance Fund provides assistance
for allowances, uniforms, books, transportation and school projects
and ranges from $10-20/month or $100-200/year for elementary
and high school students; $60/month or $600/ year for college
students. (2001 Recipients)
Through the foundation, Pulang
Lupa has initiated and continues to support and foster youth-oriented
