JSF lights Tribal School through Panasonic Corporation Solar Lanterns

Panasonic Corporation donated a number of solar lanterns to a total of 15 NGOs in the Philippines for 2016 as part of their global 100 Thousand Solar Lanterns Project which aimed “to help address social issues and provide a better life, a better world to people around the world.” (Panasonic Corp Website, 2015)
Josefa Segovia Foundation, Inc.(JSF) was chosen for the second time among the thousands of NGO’s in the world to be a partner of Panasonic Corporation. This year, the solar lanterns were given to Salagaan Ta Ananaso(a tribal school) in Sitio Ananaso, Brgy Dumalaguing at Impasugong, Bukidnon. The place can be reached by foot in three hours passing through the rivers seven times including the Pulangi River, climbing the rocks along the way and finally conquering the steep climb to the sitio. JSF is now constructing a school building through the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Toshihiro Yogo of Japan.
