As incoming grade 8 students, twenty-four ESTUDY (Educational Support and Training for Underprivileged Deserving Youth) scholars from the National Capital Region and Bukidnon of the Rebisco Foundation, Inc. (RFI) were provided with a summer enrichment activity. Known as HABIT (Honing the Attitudinal Balance of Intelligent Teens), the training and workshop was held last April and May.
The workshop gave the scholars a better grasp of the real meaning of habit, and the importance of developing positive paradigms, attitudes and habits that will help them attain their goals in life. Also designed to maximize the scholars' participation, the training was given with a healthy dose of humor, singing, dancing, relevant interactive exercises, videos and real-life scenarios.
A regular offering for the scholars since 2009 under ESTUDY's Kumustahan Program, HABIT aims to hone the scholars' full potential and assist them in coping with challenges brought by their new school environment and the demands of adolescence.
ABOUT THE ESTUDY PROGRAM
The ESTUDY Program provides opportunities for deserving children of the financially challenged employees of Rebisco. These scholars get the chance to finish their secondary education from reputable educational institutions for free. A Kumustahan Program is implemented where the scholars and their parents meet with RFI for updating on scholarship milestones and concerns.
