In a three-day writeshop session, 20 selected grantees of the Expanded Students’ Grants-in-Aid Program for Poverty Alleviation (ESGP-PA) who are also beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program wrote their own inspiring stories. These stories will be compiled in the second edition of Coffee Table Book entitled “Achieve”.

Hazel H. Achuela who graduated Magna Cum Laude with the degree Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from the Mariano Marcos State University leads the writers in the publication of the “Achieve” Coffee Table Book this year.

With the assistance of the Social Marketing Unit, these grantees were taught on the fundamentals of writing.

Hazel mentioned, “I am grateful with the opportunity and honor I have now. This is due to the ESGP-PA. As a way of giving back, I want to extend my help and encourage other struggling students to have the firm determination, willingness to learn, and work hard for their dreams. Success is to be shared.”

“Achieve” Coffee Table Book tells the personal story of ESGP-PA grantees who have kept on fighting to realize their aspirations in life and holding their head up high after winning every struggle faced as students, children, community members, and Program beneficiaries. It will be launched this year. (by: Jaesem Ryan A. Gaces, Information Officer II/Pantawid Pamilya)
