Eight 7th Grade scholars were treated to artisan inspired, create-your-own pizza at Project Pie in Eastwood last Wednesday, April 15. VP of PR&Marketing Nona Tajanlangit-Kooijman and I accompanied Gail Dpe and the scholars from ABC Foundation.
The eight students are MicroSourcing sponsored scholars from ABC Foundation, a non-profit organisation that specializes in the provision of preschool, elementary, secondary, and college education opportunities to promising and yet financially challenged Filipino children. MicroMissions acknowledges that for a young person to have a brighter future, good education is vital.
Our scholars thoroughly enjoyed the experience of creating their own pizza followed by a delicious Banana Nutella pizza for dessert. They were spoilt for choice trying to decide on whether they wanted parmesan, mozzarella, feta, or gorgonzola cheese on their pizzas. It was even a harder choice deciding on which toppings they wanted, with some cheeky brave ones requesting both green and red pepper. The boys even ordered a second pizza to fill up their bellies!
Overall, it was a lovely experience with even bigger smiles when the 7th Graders discovered a photo booth in the restaurant area and began taking numerous photos of themselves. They even performed and recorded a delightful dance number.
MicroMissions will continue to build a stronger partnership with ABC Foundation to support more children through education by bringing young people back to school.
