Covid 19 had shaken our peaceful lives! Everyone is experiencing different levels of fears and anxieties, and our Gawad Pangarap Scholars and families are no different!

Everyone worries about themselves, their families, and friends getting ill with COVID-19. We at Gawad Pangarap leadership has been reaching out to them to help them understand and to make sense if what they hear in a way is honest, accurate, and what actions to take so to minimize their fears and anxiety.

As part of COVID 19 Awareness Initiative, we have asked Scholars to participate in “Our Message to the World” "Stay Home" poster making and “Wear Mask” photo shoot. We also have encouraged parents to make Cloth Masks just to inculcate in their minds that wearing masks is a simple way of minimizing transmission of the virus.

Through Internet and social media (Facebook), we will continue to reach out to these children and their families, and teach them actions to reduce the spread of germs. Reminding children to wash their hands frequently and stay away from people who are coughing or sneezing or sick. Also, reminding them to cough or sneeze into a tissue or their elbow, then throw the tissue into the trash - reassuring them and their families that they can do simple things that can keep them safe.

 

Truly, Covid 19 had changed many things in the way we deal and see things. Unfortunate for the Foundation to not able to add additional Scholars to the Scholarship Program this School Year 2020. We will shift our focus to helping and providing school supplies to other families that were displaced financially with Covid 19 while continually supporting the already Scholars of Gawad Pangarap Foundation.

Please support us in this endeavor. With your financial help and donations, Gawad Pangarap Foundation, Inc will continue to support families for increasing awareness of this dilemma and to combat fears and anxieties. Your donation will also help pay for their school expenses and fare. Monthly contributions are a great way to budget. GlobalGiving is giving a 100% match for new recurring donations – which can double your impact!

“Be Better Tomorrow than we are today” is almost a unanimous chant from our Scholars when asked “what do you want to be when you finished High School?”  

Nostalgically looking back 5 years ago, when we first choose our first 5 Scholars for this Program, we have witnessed tears overflowing from parents who can’t afford to send their children to High School due to financial incapability. Next year, we are expecting these Scholars to graduate from the K12 Program and soon will be on their own!

Every year that Gawad Pangarap representative goes home to the Philippines and meet with these Scholars, we are always reminding them of their “Dreams” – of not letting go of such and not to waste the opportunity that was given to them by the Foundation thru Donors like you. Thank you for the over-whelming support!

Creating Leaders and Leadership has been our on-going mentoring to these young minds. As quoted from John Maxwell “How to Become Better Tomorrow than You are today”, we are imparting to them about Learning, Talking and Practicing their Craft. And we will continue to reinforce this mantra one Scholar at a time - encouraging them to participate in Community Activities, Lead in small groups; Be vocal on what is in their minds; and most importantly, to be able to Lead thru examplenary examples..

One of the goals of Gawad Pangarap Foundation is to create future Leaders from among our younger generations. The notion that Leadership is reserved for only a few and only for those that are priviledged, is yet to be proven true!

Gawad Pangarap Foundation, Inc  believes that Leadership could be learned - that each individual has the ability to lead!  With the financial support from Donors and Sponsors like you, Gawad Pangarap Foundation has opened a vast horizon of opportunities to these financially, underpriviledged students to sharpen their skills and abilities. Allowing them to be in school and get educated, to develop their confidence, and discover their ability to lead. 

Every year, it has been our goal to offer fiancial support to selected intelligent students continue their pursuit of higher education. We believe in the saying: :Knowledge is Power".

   Molding children to be better individuals, it is best to teach them how to care for the environment and for others. Recently, Gawad Pangarap Foundation Scholars joined hands with the members of Sangguniang Kabataan of Tagudin, Ilocos Sur to do Coastal clean-up. It is a common knowledge that garbage and refuse that are improperly disposed of is the major cause of flooding in the Philippines.

Tagudin and its neighboring coastal towns are fishing communities. These children participating in such activities creates in them awareness of the importance of maintaining discipline upon their actions and understands better the implications of their actions. As the saying goes, we have a responsibility to make the world a better place, and each one of us in accountable.

For Gawad Pangarap Foundation Scholars, this is an opportunity to pay back, while paying the effort forward of the help that others have provided to achieve their merits. Please continue to support us with our long term project. Monthly contributions are a great way to budget.

2019 Scholars
2019 Scholars

As Gawad Pangarap Foundation Scholarship Program pursues its 5th yr implementation, 4 kids were luckily selected last May 2019 to join the already existing 15 scholars the Foundation currently have. 

Gawad Pangarap Foundation, Inc. is a fully registered, non-profit organization based in San Diego, CA, USA.  The Foundation aims to sponsor highly intellectual, indigent elementary graduates go thru 6 yrs in High School. The number of Scholars admitted to the Scholarship Program depends on how much the Foundation is able to solicit and fund raise for the year.

To be chosen as a Scholar, the applicant's family should belong to the low-income category as indigent by DSWD. They will also need to pass the School Entrance Test, the Interview and Essay. As a chosen Scholar, the student will enjoy a fullly paid  Scholarship; to include 3 sets of school uniform, 2 sets of PE uniform, school supplies,  and allotted money for Projects and fare.

The Foundation is very grateful for all our Donors and Supporters. All the benefits these students enjoy are made possible because of your generosity.  We truly appreciate you!!

We envision that thru supporting these intelligent students pursue higher education, they will be able to uplift their lives and be out from poverty.
