It was a very special day for Princess Bautista — she finally finished college.
Princess is a daughter of a farmer and has six siblings.
“Wala po silang kakayahan na paaralin po ako sa college po… pero salamat po sa Dios kasi may isang institusyon na nagbibigay ng libre sa katulad naming gustong mag-aral (They have no financial capability to send me through college… but thank God, because there is an institution that provides free education to people like us who want to study) ,” Princess said.
She is just one of the 79 scholars who graduated on Tuesday at the La Verdad Christian College in Caloocan.
The school provides free education to indigent youth.
Aside from the free tuition, the students are also provided with free uniforms, food and books.
More than 500 students of La Verdad Caloocan were able to finish their studies since 2012.
Prominent election lawyer, Atty. Erwin Garcia graced the event as guest of honor. He said he salutes the school for teaching the students various lessons.
“You’re all very lucky because aside from the free education, you are also taught how to develop your character, and your love of God and your nationalism,” said Atty. Garcia.
Last week, more than 200 students graduated in the main campus of La Verdad in Apalit, Pampanga.
The La Verdad Christian College was founded by Brother Eli Soriano and Kuya Daniel Razon in 2000. It serves as a part of their advocacy to help the poor. — Leslie Longboen | UNTV News & Rescue
