Eyeglass Project at San Antonio Elementary School

Our second Eyeglass Project for the school year was conducted once again in partnership with the Rotary Club of Makati.

The beneficiaries of this second Eyeglass Project were the students of San Antonio Elementary School in Parañaque City.

On September 1, ABC Foundation, along with Dr. Jeson and Ms. Anne Viñas visited San Antonio Elementary School to check the eyesight of students suspected by their teachers to have poor eyesight.  Dr. Jeson and Ms. Anne Viñas were assisted by the teachers and administrators of San Antonio Elementary School and by Mr. Paul Villegas of the Ateneo Center for Educational Development (ACED), who has been working closely with the Rotary Club of Makati and different public elementary schools in Parañaque.

San Antonio Elementary School headed by Principal Mr. Gerry Lumaban did a wonderful job arranging the distribution program for the 150 eyeglass recipients and their parents.  Some of the other students of San Antonio Elementary School also participated in the program by performing a Filipino folk dance as an intermission number.
