Adopt-A-Child Scholarship Program

“Education is a powerful tool by which socially and economically marginalized children and adults can lift themselves out of poverty”. In 2016 LASAC organized Adopt-a-Child Scholarship Program (AACSP) that provided educational assistance to deserving indigent students from Grade 1 – Grade 10. On its third year, AACSP helped four hundred (400) indigent students from eight (8) parishes of the Archdiocese. Through the help of three hundred twenty-seven (327) generous sponsors, the students were given educational assistance by providing them school supplies. Also, as an advocate of child protection, LASAC conducted Child Sexual Abuse Prevention (CSAP) Sessions to nine (9) different schools where our beneficiaries are studying. By conducting these sessions, we help them protect themselves and become advocates and catalysts of empowerment as well.
