2016 Orientation and General Assembly

Last July 16 and August 20, 2016, the PFI Team held its annual Orientation for New Scholars and PNS General Assembly. The orientation aims to welcome the new PNS scholars, their families, and their volunteer Big Brothers and Big Sisters (BBBS) from the PHINMA HERO Network. During the event, graduates of the PNS Program and BBBS shared their personal experiences and learnings to the new batch of scholars and parents.

“Napagtanto ko po na ang PHINMA ay hindi lang po tumutulong sa isang mag-aaral na kagaya ko financially, ngunit mas iniisip nila ang ‘Bigger picture’ iniisip nila mismo ako at ang kinabukasan ko, na para silang kapamilya ko.”
– Maryrose Sanchez, 2nd Year Student, UP

“Lubos po akong nasiyahan ng naging kabilang ako sa pamilyang ito na hindi lamang ‘allowance’ yung makukuha mo kundi aral na manggagaling mismo sa kanila, yung tuturuan kaming maging isang lider at huhubugin ang aming sarili para sa tunay na kahulugan ng buhay.”
– Delaelah Medillo, 1st Year Student, PNU
