Bruno Mars’ Scholars Pass Qualifying
Exam in Don Bosco TVET Center
Unaware of what life may bring after the havoc caused by the Super Typhoon
Yolanda in 2013 and Typhoon Glenda last July, a blessing awaits as a new chapter of
their lives begin.
Arllan Hibero (17), Ryan Norcio (18), Marjun Libanan (19), and Raymart Amigo
(17), became scholars of pop singer Bruno Mars, in partnership with ALKFI-Bantay
Bata 163’s Bantay Edukasyon. Recently, they passed the qualifying exam in Don Bosco
Tondo TVET Center where they will undergo a 15-month training for vocational courses
in automotive, electrical and housekeeping.
The scholars came from impoverished families in Jipapad, Eastern Samar where
their families try to make ends meet every day by farming.
The four boys are truly grateful for the opportunity to have a fresh start. They
look forward to supporting their families after finishing their studies.

The Pandayan Bookshop,

a coin bank donor of
Bantay Bata 163 for more than 10 years donated 50 stuffed toys to be used as game
prizes on October 18 during the Araw ng mga Bata event in Bantay Bata Laguna.

these plushies that the kids will truly love!
