Christmas is for children. The season of giving came early for 50 kids of TSPI farmer clients at Sitio Poultry, Barangay Magsalisi, Jaen, Nueva Ecija, when TSPI Gapan Branch arranged a play-and-learn day on December 7, 2019. Starting off with prayers and Christian songs, the children played games through which they learned healthy habits and proper hygiene, like hand-washing.Christmas is for children. The season of giving came early for 50 kids of TSPI farmer clients at Sitio Poultry, Barangay Magsalisi, Jaen, Nueva Ecija, when TSPI Gapan Branch arranged a play-and-learn day on December 7, 2019. Starting off with prayers and Christian songs, the children played games through which they learned healthy habits and proper hygiene, like hand-washing.

As Christmas gifts, the children received hygiene kits containing towel, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, comb and slippers. The wife of a TSPI client farmer, apparently moved, said, “Ang buti ng Dyos, masayang-masaya po ako kasi nakikita ko masaya ang mga bata (God is good! I am happy because I see the children are happy).” Another parent said, “Sana po wag po kayong magsasawa (I hope you won’t tire doing this), referring to TSPI.

The activity was supported by the Magsalisi Farmers and Growers of Calamansi, Pangkabuhayan, Inc. (MASIFAGCA) and the barangay chairman.  MASIFAGCA Pangkabuhayan Inc. is a group of farmer-clients organized by TSPI in partnership with the Jollibee Group Foundation (JGF). 

Gracing the children’s event was TSPI Executive Director, Ms. Alice Cordero, who led the gift-giving; TSPI Vice Chair Dr. Abe Pascual and BOT member Mr. Lito Fider.  Dr. Pascual and Mr. Fider also took the opportunity to fellowship with the farmers, sharing their experiences as businessmen and hopefully inspiring them. They also led the prayer.
