Upon donation, the Foundation asks all donees to submit a profile of the schools and students that will be using the books as well as documentation to support that the books were properly received.

    I’m Ms. Rechel D. Grefaldio from Quezon City. I’m a public school teacher and at the same community youth leader. I’m the founder of History Makers Youth Organization in Barangay Bagong Silangan, Quezon City. We are now currently looking for an organization who will help us for our upcoming project Books for the Day Cares because we strongly believe that we need to become part of strengthening barangay day cares and provide access to quality education far all children, especially disadvantaged children in the community. We strongly believe that bringing quality education resources will help to break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy. We also conduct Peer Mentoring Program for less fortunate children in the community every summer. We will be having A Children’s party and part of the said program is book donation, feeding program and
    storytelling activity.

    In line with this, may I request from your good office to become one of your recepients of books this year. We really ask for your support to make our projects possible. I hope that you can help us. We’re looking forward for your immediate response. God Bless Bato Balani Foundation

    Ms. Reich Grefaldio
