Aquino Prechool Donation Page

Two hours drive from our UU Church of the Philippines headquarters in Dumaguete on the island of Negros there is a little village, a barangay, named Aquino. Our 27 other churches all have Sunday Schools, but only Aquino has a weekday preschool, with about three dozen kids, three teachers and a director.

The school has done so well that Rev. Rebecca, Director of the UU Partner Churches of the Philippines, applied for a $10,000. grant from the UUA to build a new cement building for a classroom and a Learning Resource Center.

The UUA put $8,000 into the bank for her, saying it would be released when she raised the last $2,000. But Philippino UUs are poor.  She has only been able to $400 for the school.

So this is the "nail" that is keeping the kids in a thatched hut, with no real classroom; $1,600. If you would be willing to donate $5, $20, $50. or $100. or whatever you or your Sunday School could contribute, we'll give those kids a headstart to their education.

They're trying to get ready to cope with the 21st Century. Will you lend a hand?
