For some kids, it's already back-to-school, but for others, it's not.

My friend, Bea Ledesma of YStyle emailed me this, if you're looking to help children in need, here's something to look into:

Dear Friends,

We write in behalf of the students of St. Vincent’s Academy (SVA).
SVA is located in Kauswagan, Lanao del Norte – a poor, war-torn area in Mindanao. SVA, together with the Religious of the Assumption, strives to educate the children of Kauswagan academically, emotionally, and spiritually. The children are taught the importance of seeking and keeping peace through various activities such as the yearly Peace Camps.

Keeping children in school gives them the education and skills they need to succeed in life. However, it is important to send children to schools such as SVA because there they are taught the values they will need to grow into good, peace-loving adults.

For Php 3,500, you can send a child to school in SVA for an entire schoolyear. Your contribution can change a child’s life and put him or her on the path to a peaceful, well-lived life.

Many of the children in Kauswagan are desperate to go to school but lack the means to do so. We hope that you will consider sponsoring a child. If you are interested, please send us a message at

Thank you very much, and we hope to hear from your soon!

Much love,
Assumption College High School Batch 1999

Just thought I let you know that the Kiwanis Club of Vienna, Austria in cooperation with the former Kiwanis District Governor for Philippines South is now starting to sponsor scholarships for initially 4, later for 10 students of this school. We channel funds to the school and to somebody that organizes transport for these kids in such a way that there will be no admin charges i.e. 100% of the funds go towards the scholarship. If somebody would like to avail itself of this channel to sponsor additional kids and at the same time would like to be sure about the proper use of funds then Kiwanis offers itself as an alternative vehicle to help this cause. Interested parties may write without any obligation to and check out the Kiwanis Vienna webpage at
