Nu Skin Force For Good Foundation Funds $300,000 Building Of New School In The Philippines
Nu Skin’s Force for Good Foundation donated nearly $300,000 via Singapore Red Cross to build a new school for young children in Albuera, Philippines, adversely impacted by Super Typhoon Haiyan. The Nov. 8, 2013, storm killed an estimated 6,300 people and nearly annihilated the provinces of Samar and Leyte.
Nu Skin’s funds helped pay for Calingatan Elementary School that accommodates up to 270 children with 15 classrooms and additionally serves as an evacuation and relief center. The educational facility was constructed to be earthquake and typhoon resistant and is also equipped with solar panels to conserve energy.
The new school was dedicated in a ceremony, Nov. 5, 2014, attended by Nu Skin sales leaders and employees, and Secretary General for Singapore Red Cross Benjamin William, Albuera Mayor Ramon de la Cerna and other Albuera government officials. Students enrolled at the school were also presented with Nu Skin tote bags containing notebooks, markers and colored pencils.
We are very happy for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the people in this community. This project gives the children a chance to better their lives as they and their families move on after the Haiyan tragedy,” said Jasmine Yang, Nu Skin Regional Vice President of Marketing for Pacific and Southeast Asia Regions.
