Sponsored child receives Best Pupil award
Late last year, Beth Marinelle “Bechay” P. Pacaldo received a very nice Christmas gift from one of CERV’s former volunteers. Australian Rebecca “Bec” Snell offered to support her studies with some financial assistance—specifically, to help her with the fare and lunch money as well as some school supplies like books, bags, uniforms and shoes.
The girl just made it all worthwhile for her benefactor.
Bechay finishes the current school year at the top of her class. She was awarded a certificate and a gold medal for being the “Best Pupil” in her class. She is a grade four pupil of Camarin Elementary, a public school in Caloocan City-North. In June of this year, she enters as an intermediate Grade 5 student in the same school.
Bechay is just one of the several bright Filipino students who are being supported by former CERV volunteers in Iloilo, Romblon and Manila.
