On behalf of Provincial Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza-Dimaporo, Executive Assistant to the Office of Provincial Governor, Ms. Sittie Aminah Quibranza Dimaporo on June 4, 2018, personally handed over cash assistance to less fortunate but deserving students whose parents are not members of 4Ps and has an average grade of 85% and above for the last school year.

Students accompanied by their parents happily accepted the cash assistance witnessed by teachers and School Principal who were proud to see their students rewarded for their great effort in sustaining the average score of 85%.

45, 65 and 69 Junior & Senior High students from Dalama National High School, Arsenio A. Qubranza National High School and Teofila C. Quibranza National High School, respectively, received cash intended for School uniform, P.E. uniform, School supplies, Shoes and other needed items for them to continue their education.

Governor Angging sees the need to help these students who has the potential to excel but cannot continue due to poverty. Instead spending for their children’s education parents tend to spend it for their day to day existence which makes education lesser priority.

This is the reason why the Provincial Chief Executive is eager to help these less fortunate students and giving them a chance to change their future by doing well in their studies and maintaining the average grade. Ms. Sittie Aminah encouraged the beneficiary students to continue making good grades and hopes that by next year more students can avail of the cash assistance program of the Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte as part of the Quibranza Dimaporo Initiative.

Provincial Social Welfare and Development Officer, Annabelle S. Mendez spearheads the day’s activity in coordination with the School Principals. More students in Lanao del Norte are expected in the coming days to receive the same cash assistance to ease their school expenses. PIO-LDN
