This actually isn't the first time that we at AHON Foundation found ourselves in Nueva Ecija to develop libraries. In the past we've opened eight AHON libraries in the Nueva Ecija region. But this didn't mean that we weren't welcomed by our partners with the same enthusiasm and joy that we were welcomed with the very first time we inaugurated a library there.
You could say we were unfortunate since when we got to Nueva Ecija on the morning of our library inaugurations, it was raining hard. But we chose to see the rain as showered blessings from above, and proceeded to start the program at Entablado Elementary School's library inauguration like it was business as usual.
The inauguration at Entablado was well attended by the school community and local government leaders alike. Mayor Baby Congco, current municipal mayor of Cabiao as well as former San Isidro Municipal Mayor Sonia Lorenzo gave inspirational talks, while Councilor Obet Franco who oversaw the development of the library also attended the inauguration. Cabiao's Barangay Captain and the DepEd public school's district supervisor were also present.
After the program, students and teachers braved the rain to watch the ceremonial ribbon cutting and of course, use the new library!
AHON Foundation congratulates Entablado Elementary School in Cabiao Nueva Ecija for a job well done! We hope your new library builds tomorrow's dreamers who will build the nation.
