CFCA scholar success stories: In their words

CFCA 2010 Filipino scholars

A group of Filipino CFCA scholars convene in 2010. The scholarship program gives participants an opportunity to meet regularly for mutual advice and support.

Our scholarship program helps youth and young adults continue their education at secondary schools, technical schools and university programs. Here are some beautiful testimonies from current and former CFCA scholars in the Philippines.

Regina: “Being part of the scholarship program is a dream comes true. I cannot imagine my college life without it. After a year of experiences and opportunities, I know that I am ready to face the challenges of my studies without any hesitation. … In fact, I am the only child [in my family] privileged to have college education and because of that, I feel so blessed.”

Karen: “I already graduated from college. For some, this achievement is just normal. But for me who persevered and really strived hard to reach this goal, I treasure it as a great achievement in life. For my education is worth the hardship of my grandparents in the farm field just to send me to school. The hardship I encountered when I must be in school without any amount of money and borrowed from others to have something to eat when I am hungry; the hardships when I walked from school miles away to be home; the patience in getting a special examination permit just to have the examination on time and the love and passion in doing all the projects and assignments; I surpassed [all these] and I am now a teacher.”

Marco: “The CFCA Scholarship Program has a great purpose as it never fails to conduct ethical and enjoyable activities that have brought positive changes to everyone. … CFCA does not only care for us students, but also for our families.”

Renebeth: “I am very grateful to God because I became part of this wonderful foundation: the Christian Foundation for Children and Aging (CFCA). Through CFCA my life made great changes. I was a young lady with no sense of direction before. When I joined the CFCA Scholarship Program I learned to direct myself for a good life with the help of kind and caring people in CFCA around me and with the help of God. We are one bigger family where you can have friends, brothers, sisters, lots of parents and staff to love and be loved.”
