Time flies so fast! Another quarter has passed, and the girls of Tahanan Sta. Luisa are more than happy with their different activities during this time.
Many students from different colleges expressed their interest in visiting the shelter. The center gladly accommodated them to make them better understand the hardships and the joys of the girls who are living in the shelter. The students learned a lot and enjoyed the time spent with the girls.
Also, during this time, there were a lot of reports sent to different donors as the quarter has ended, and some of the projects has already ended. The staff were very busy completing all of these to comply to the donors.
Lastly - the center has moved to another place! Will be posting photos as soon as averything is settled.
But for now, this is one major happening from the center.
The first quarter of 2015 is a very busy one for the center.
They had many inquiries of volunteers wanting to visit and help in any way they can. There were also inquiries for on-the-job trainings for college students; as well as inquiries from friends who would like to conduct activities in the center.
This first three months was also a busy one for the staff of Tahanan Sta. Luisa - as many reports for donors are being completed.
We were recently visited by Ms. Erich Gonzales, actress and one of the recurring visitor of TSL.
If you wish to see more of the girl’s day-to-day activities, kindly visit their official facebook page:
We hope to hear from you! Please email us at email@example.com and let us know your thoughts about the center’s program and activities.
Summer is already here in the Philippines – our next report will be about it! Stay tuned!
This December, the girls of Tahanan Sta. Luisa were very thankful for all the gifts they have received this year. Their joy overflows specially during the time when they will be giving some of the gifts they received to their loved ones – during the center’s “Family Day”.
December indeed is a month of giving – the center have felt it with an outpour of activities from volunteers, friends and supporters who wished to celebrate the Christmas with the girls.
The girls were busy with school, practices and attending to activities planned by different volunteers and organizations. We all could not ask for more.
We would like to sincerely thank everyone for their tremendous support to help the center. We all could not do it without you.
We wish you will all have a prosperous 2015... Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
One more month – and then, it’s Christmas!
Every year, Tahanan Sta.Luisa conducts a Christmas Program / Family Day to the girls and their relatives (if possible). This is regularly arranged so the girls are able to celebrate the holiday season with their loved ones.
Usually during this month, individual or group donors would ask the girls a list of what they would want to receive as gifts this Christmas. And what they answer will amaze you – they almost always ask firstly that they will have a Christmas food package that they can give to their families. They all do not ask for any new personal items (like clothes) before making sure they have enough to give to their family. Indeed, their selflessness is very inspiring.
During the Family Day, the girls are presenting song and dance numbers to their visitors. After that comes the lunch or snacks with their relatives – and updating each other with what’s happening with them. The last part of the program is the gift-giving – when the girls are giving their gifts to their families (the ones they requested to receive as a wish list). We will update you with what’s happened during this year’s Family Day next month.
On other notes, one of TSL’s donors, Korea Foundation for Women visited the center on the first week of November. Ms. Lee Hae-ri, Chief Manager and Ms. Hyoung Cho, Chairperson of Korea Foundation for Women, were very delighted to meet the girls; and they enjoyed their stay in Manila.
Lastly, TSL recently ties up with Lamido through its “Lamido4Charites” campaign. Lamido sells TSL products and ships it for free. All sales will proceed to the center / the girls who made the personalized accessory. To see the products, please visit this link:
Happy November, everyone!
It's almost Christmas - how time flies so fast!
The lovely girls of Tahanan Sta. Luisa had a productive and fun October - besides visitors and volunteers coming, they attended a network of NGOs event to overcome extreme poverty, held at the Rizal Park last October 17.
We also have been receiving email inquiries, asking if they could hold their birthday celebrations at the center. The girls of Tahanan Sta. Luisa loves parties - so the following months will be filled with laughter and fun - for both the girls and the volunteers.
TSL is still continuously striving to look for partnerships with different organizations to extend networking and to seek out for funding.
On other updates, the girls are still having fun creating accessories!
The photos of their cute jewelries can be seen here:
With the help of donors, staff and friends of TSL - we all hope that the girls will get better and better.
