Thank you for another Elevita scholarship

Your support of Elevita is doing a world of good!  Thanks to you we are able to sponsor the education of two more young women in the Philippines:  Mariefel Macato and Jeanette Josol.  Here is a little about Mariefel:

In her first year of high school Mariefel was #2 in her class.  She placed #2 in a district level Math Quiz Bee, #2 in a Scientific Competition, and #2 in a grade school district Science Competition and was a class Sergeant at Arms.  She also participated in a Math Teachers Association of the Philippines (MTAP) activity.  Her class adviser reported that she can lead others and do tasks given to her with little supervision.

Goals:  Mariefel wants to be a successful engineer.

Favorites:  In school, she likes math.  Her hobby is studying.  Her favorite food is Lumpia Shanghai (an egg roll filled with meat).

Family:  Mariefel lives with her parents and younger brother.

Income:  Her father is a motorcab-for-hire driver earning $1-$2 per day.

Housing:  The walls of their home are made of nipa leaves, bamboo, hollow concrete blocks, coconut wood, and tin sheets.

Mariefel's determination to improve her and her family's life through hard work and education is an inspiration to all of us at Elevita.
