ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / May 22, 2011) – Local party organizer By Gems Party Kingdom and the Culianan Learning Center have signed a memorandum of agreement to jointly support outstanding and deserving students by providing them school supplies and uniform.
In a ceremony held recently at the Culianan Learning Center, By Gems handed over writing paraphernalia, bags, school uniforms, shoes and sacks, and tee-shirts to ten students who were also awarded certificates of scholarship.
The ceremony was witnessed by Dr. Josefina Lacastesantos, the school principal, and Eloisa Bernardo, who is in-charge of the learning center, and parents of the new scholars.
