Sorsogon City, Philippines – Niles and Meleneus Perlas, a Filipino couple residing in New York, USA recently donated $5,000 for The Lewis College (TLC) in their desire to support the needy but deserving students in Sorsogon. Half of this amount was donated by KDP Foundation, a foundation set up by Mr. and Mrs. Perlas named after their daughter Kristine Perlas.

This scholarship from KDP Foundation is for students who are poor but have exemplary performance in studies and passed the screening of the TLC Executive Committee. The other half will be for an evergreen loan fund, the Niles and Meleneus Loan Fund which will be made available to qualified TLC graduates who lack funds for processing their papers but are already scheduled to work abroad.
