Early this year, Yoga+ partnered with ABC Foundation to promote better health through yoga while helping less fortunate but very deserving students get quality education.
From February to March, 2013, participants of the Yoga+ challenge would practice yoga 5 times a week for 6 weeks and have 10 of their friends sponsor P10.00 for every day that they attended. At the end of 30 days, they would have raised P3,000.00 with the help of their friends – enough to sponsor 1 Night High School scholar with ABC Foundation.
The 15 Night High scholars are all in the 7th grade at St. Dominic Academy, Pulilan, Bulacan. The funds raised by the Yoga+ challenge were enough to sponsor them through 1 year of Night High School and to provide each with a bag of school supplies.
On July 22, 2013, a new branch of Yoga+ opened at Salcedo Village, Makati City and ABC Foundation was invited to talk about its Night High School Scholarship program to interested guests, as well as to tell participants of the Yoga+ challenge about the 15 scholars they sponsored for 1 school year.
The event was attended by Ms. Dinah Salonga, Ms. Dina Salang of Yoga+, ABC Foundation Chairman Lew Edwards and Coordinator Ms. Fidji Sundae Sedo, and by yoga enthusiasts, students, friends, family and supporters.
We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Ms. Dinah Salonga and everybody at Yoga+ for supporting our Night High Scholarship Program, and especially to all the participants of the Yoga+ challenge: Ms. Bianca Galapon, Ms. Katrina Gonida, Ms. Dina Salang, Ms. Anne Marie Alonso, Ms. Dina Gomez, Ms. Denden Reyes, Ms. Shermelle Cabrales, Ms. Bambi Flaviano, Ms. Chi Rey, Ms. Carina Silerio, Ms. Justine Tantoco and Ms. Tere dela Torre.
