• Swinging 60s return to Manila

    2 January 2018

    Lighthouse Manila celebrated their Swinging Sixties Annual Charity Ball last 4 November 2017, with airline partner Etihad Airways, automotive partner Ford, and many supporting sponsors. 230 ladies and gents, dressed to the nines enjoyed the evening, raising close to PHP200,000 for Lighthouse Club Manila scholars. The evening featured local band REPLAY who rocked the dance floor; quirky decorations, games, a live auction, and spectacular raffle prizes to keep the night alive.

    Joining Lighthouse Club Manila graduates is Civil Engineer Paulo Dulay, who graduated last April 2017 from the Technological Institute of the Philippines, and just passed his Board License exam. His story reminds us to why we support Lighthouse Club Manila, and how we change lives.

    Paolo writes

    “Right after my graduation from high school I already determined I wanted to become a Civil Engineer. However, my family is only supported by my father who is a massage therapist, and I was determined to take part-time job to support my studies. Then, I was thrilled to have my application for your scholarship programme approved. During my college years, you provided me with everything that I’ve needed. You paid for my tuition fees which my family’s monthly income could not provide. You’ve given me the courage and determination to do my best on my academics. Though I may not be the smartest among your scholars, I was blessed with the drive to achieve my goals. I am very grateful for all the other things you’ve done for me. I will always be thankful and indebted to you. I wish to repay your kindness anyway that I can”.

    Manila News − A Thank You Letter

Nobody’s journey is seamless or smooth, we all stumble, and we all have setbacks. The point is we should never allow our fear of failure to paralyze us from trying something that challenges our comfort zone. Looking at myself now, I [...]
