Thank you for sharing your blessings to support our residential, home study, and farm programs. May your generosity be blessed with all the graces you need as you continue to support those who are in need, especially the poor young people.

Here is the short photo documentation of our various activities.

God bless you!

Brigada of the Parents of our Learners

As the families of our learners’ counterpart contribution for the free home study boarding school of their children, the Laura Vicuña Center – Palawan welcomed the voluntary services of their parents which we call “gulpemano or brigade”. Before the opening of the school, the fathers & big brothers of our resident-learners repaired the termite-infested double deck beds of the female resident-learners, the toilets, the basketball goal, and the clearing of the perimeter areas of the Center.



Completion Ceremony of YS 11 Learners

On June 4, 2022, nineteen of the learners graduated from junior high school under the REAP Program of UST Angelicum College with the theme "Persistence, Determination, and Excellence Amidst Adversities." The entire LVF Palawan community, headed by Sr. Catherine T. Urgello, FMA, and FMA Sisters, wish congratulations to all those who completed and to the parents who were extremely supportive and loving all throughout their journey in the Center. They attended the virtual completion rites together with their parents at the Laura Vicuna Center and some of the members of the community.
