Handum Sa Paeaabuton Scholarship Programme translates to ‘dream of growth, for the future’. The programme was established in 2009 when Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa began to work with Yapak High School.
Outstanding graduates are given full scholarships to aid their pursuit of a college education. In addition to these scholarships, the hotel supports the enhancement of the school’s facilities and workshops for the local community on topics of hygiene and sanitation.
Recently, the resort’s General Manager and staff visited the Lamberto H. Tirol National High School in Barangay Yapak, Boracay Island for the special reason of bringing new text books.
Last year, the resort supplied 100 books. Since then, 68 books have been added covering various learning topics from history of The Philippines and Filipino to mathematics, science and more. The average student-book ratio is now 1:3, whereas previously, text books were scarce and shared by several students. The new books were bought from the contributions of hotel guests and employees. There is natural joy in sharing and inspiring others to read and continuously learn.
