SSRDF Target Revisited

 

In 1986 when SSRDF was initiated,  part of its aim was to enunciate the Manila Priory’s aim to be of greater service to the poor – in the area of education – was to include 20% of its school population at St. Scholastica’s College, Manila, from among the financially poor.  The financial picture then of the country as well as tuition rates at the time were such that the SSRDF Board considered a fund of P20,000 would generate an annual interest income sufficient to fund a financially poor student through college.  Thus, solicitations for funds were made accordingly.

The situation very soon changed.  Money had been donated by a number of generous donors – but interest rates plunged drastically.  And tuition rates in schools and colleges very soon had to rise just as dramatically to match financial needs of families.

Today the SSRDF is daring to revive the aim.  With the invaluable help of alumnae, friends and other benefactors, it aims to move from the present less than 10% to the targeted 20%!  With prayers for God’s blessings on each and every benefactor!
