Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan and Vice Mayor Yul Servo Nieto of Manila joined hands in the distribution of the Educational Assistance Program to selected students of public schools in the city. A total of 922 beneficiaries from the six districts of Manila were awarded Php 5,000 each on Tuesday, May 16, to support their educational expenses, including school supplies and materials for school projects.

The initiative led by Mayor Lacuna-Pangan and Vice Mayor Nieto aims to alleviate the financial burden faced by students and their families in meeting the costs of education. Recognizing the importance of education and its role in shaping the future of the youth, the program seeks to provide assistance to deserving students who may require additional support.

The distribution of the Educational Assistance Program is a testament to the commitment of the local government of Manila in promoting equal opportunities in education. By providing financial aid to selected students, Mayor Lacuna-Pangan and Vice Mayor Nieto hope to empower them in pursuing their academic aspirations and unlocking their full potential.


During the distribution event, Mayor Lacuna-Pangan reminded the parents of the students that the assistance is specifically intended for their children's educational needs. She emphasized that the funds should be utilized for school-related expenses, such as purchasing school supplies and materials, and not be diverted to pay off loans or household expenses.

By directing the funds towards educational expenses, the local government aims to ensure that the students can fully engage in their learning journey without financial constraints. The assistance program serves as a catalyst for fostering a conducive learning environment and nurturing the intellectual growth of the students.

The presence of Mayor Lacuna-Pangan and Vice Mayor Nieto during the distribution event underscored their hands-on approach and commitment to the welfare of Manila's youth. The leaders personally handed over the financial aid to the beneficiaries, expressing their support and encouragement for the students' educational pursuits.

By prioritizing education and supporting students' needs, the local government of Manila aims to nurture a generation of empowered individuals equipped with the knowledge and skills to contribute to the city's growth and development.


In the years to come, the impact of the Educational Assistance Program is expected to reverberate through the lives of the beneficiaries, enabling them to pursue their educational goals and reach new heights of achievement. Through the unwavering dedication of Mayor Lacuna-Pangan, Vice Mayor Nieto, and the entire Manila local government, the city continues to pave the way for a brighter and more prosperous future for its young citizens.
