On January 5th, 2019, Esther Banziger, Hugo Banziger and Jennifer Asuncion attended today the inauguration of the Hijas School for Girls at San Martin de Porres. The Hijas de Esther is part of the San Martin de Porres facility dedicated to serving the needs of girls of school age. The School for Girls has been under construction since early 2017 and provides six class rooms and educational facilities for the 60 girls now living in the Hijas village. Previously, the girls and teachers had been sharing dormitory and living space with schooling space. The Hijas School facility now enables them to have actual school rooms with appropriate equipment to help them continue to achieve academic success.
The Hijas school is run in cooperation with Bulacan State University (http://www.bulsu.edu.ph/). The Hijas School diploma is fully in line with government regulations and allows our girls to transfer to state high schools.
The Hijas Girls designed and ran a beautiful reception for the visitors to celebrate this inauguration.
