Thanks to all who helped with our Spring 2022 Balikbayan Collection Drive. With your help we were able to send 7 boxes (filled to the brim) to the kids and families of Payatas. If you missed out, you can still help out when we have our Fall Balikbayan Collection Drive in October 2022.

Dr. Astrid Tuminez

President, Utah Valley University

We were very fortunate and honored that Dr. Astrid Tuminez, President of Utah Valley University, accepted our invitation to be the keynote speaker at our 2020 fundraising dinner. Like our children, Dr. Tuminez grew up in a very poor community in the Philippines but managed to rise out of poverty through the help of sponsors who gave her a hand up.

View Dr. Astrid Tuminez’s dynamic speech about giving hope to impoverished children by providing them with the power of education. Dr. Tuminez was born in a small island village in Iloilo province in the Philippines. Though raised in extreme poverty as the sixth of seven children, she received a scholarship at the age of five to attend a private school run by Catholic nuns. With unshakeable resolve and unwavering support from her loved ones, she has overcome seemingly insurmountable adversities and, to this day, continues to excel in every field she decides to tackle.

A Lasting Legacy
