The Cecilia’s Inn takes part in making the lives of the children in Sta. Lourdes Elementary School better. The school is situated 13 km. away from the provincial capitol. The students here (ages 7 through 12 years old) live in the nearby farm area and most of their parents cannot provide for their school needs. We’d like to help by donating school supplies and other reference materials which will aid the students in their daily school activities. We hope that learning, for these kids, will be an enjoyable journey and a step for a better future.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
