Yours truly also donated some of my books, fiction books, novels, magazines, textbooks, researches, and board games with high hopes that they can be beneficial to all the students. I am also thankful to Ms. Nica Mandigma and Ms. Margie Tan because they went to the school to cover my project for a website fund sourcing article at I was very elated to see Ms. Nica’s article and Ms. Margie’s photos of me on the website.

Two computers were also donated by Development Academy of the Philippines as solicited by Sir Paul. Sir Jerson Jolo, one of the new teachers in SHS in June 2017, also became instrumental in the book donations of his former student, Lynard Adrian L. Rivera. He was also able to solicit a set of volleyball (net plus ball). Our gratitude also to the General PTA last school year. The fund collected for the GPTA Project was used to have the wall between the classroom and the Learning Resource Center.

This is how the LRC looks like right now. Big thanks to the creativity of Ms. Racquel De Torres, our volunteer LRC staff. By the way, the flat-screen TV was fixed on my classroom because the Audio-Visual Room we had last school year is now used as a classroom.


Hallelujah! Thank you Lord.

P.S. This is the original post I wrote for this project:Ā

We are still accepting donations in any kind. Feel free to message me. Thank you very much!



Wanted: Donors for LRC/AVR

I am working on a project. This project aims to broaden the perspectives of the learners in different fields as they can explore various learning materials in a place where they can be free to ask and be creative. You might think it’s a library. But I prefer to call it a learning resource center. Plus a flat screen TV and it’s an audio-visual room combined.

But there’s a big problem. I don’t have money for this project. The DepEd fund allotted for CastaƱas NHS – Senior High School would not be sufficient for the expenses in establishing an audio-visual room and a learning resource center. So, I am writing this to appeal to good-hearted donors out there.

You may donate any amount or anything that can help in building this project. Be it a book, a cabinet, an electric fan, a table, etc. Anything that is from your generous hearts would be appreciated.

If you would contribute some amount, the first thing we would buy is a flat-screen TV. Whether it’s 24 inches which costs almost P10,000.00 or 50 inches which can cost from P25,000.00 to P50,000.00 (SOURCE:, the viewing experience is far more satisfying than watching from my 15″ laptop screen or the pale view from the old projector of my new co-teacher (peace Sir Paul!).

So why not a projector instead of flat screen TV? The idea here is to fix the equipment on the wall. The more frequent it is carried around, the more it may suffer from damages. And according to my students, they appreciate the color better from my laptop than from a projector.

It has always been my dream to put up a community library or a place where books are read, ideas are shared, dreams are woven. Now that I am teaching in my community, I really want to pursue this mission to help the youngsters build their dreams and ambitions. In this learning resource center/audio-visual room, our students would find a place where they can explore things beyond the ordinary walls of a formal classroom. Here they can be creative, they can think ideas out of the box, they can make a lot of things.

That’s why I write this post. I am looking for donors for this project. And if you’re reading this, I hope you will be the one I am looking for.

Friends, you may contact me personally to chip in your donations. Or you may contact me through my cellphone # (09305797848). If you wish to send in donations through a bank account, this is the joint account we opened for this cause:
