CITY OF MALOLOS - One hundred pupils of Tiaong Elementary School in Tiaong, Guiguinto, Bulacan received new footwear from Provincial Information Officer and Guiguinto Parent-Teachers Association (PTA) President Maricel Santos-Cruz earlier today.

According to Cruz, the free slippers for the pupils is her own way of telling the kids to dream and fulfill those dreams.

“Hindi naman ako lumaki na mayaman. Nangangarap ako palagi kasi ‘yung mga kaklase ko matataas ang mga tsinelas habang ako butas na ‘yung tsinelas ko. Kaya hinihikayat ko ‘yung mga bata na patuloy sila na mangarap dahil ‘yung pangarap na ‘yun ang magdadala sa kanila sa tagumpay,” Cruz said.

She added that the project gives herself satisfaction because she knows that in her own way, she made the kids happy.

“’Yung ngiti ng mga bata hindi mababayaran ‘yan. Iba ‘yung saya kapag ngingitian ka ng mga bata tapos magpapasalamat tapos sasabihin nila sa’kin na balik ulit ako,” Cruz added.

She also said that this is just the first of the series of slippers distribution because she plans to give 2,000 pairs of slipper for the pupils of Guiguinto and nearby areas.
