TUMBAS Donation Strengthens Children’s Education

TUMBAS Foundation believes that providing for children’s education today will lead to a better tomorrow, not only for the kids but also for their families.

The foundation, otherwise known as Sustamina Foundation, is a strong advocate for the education and good health of children in the communities they support. Based in the Philippines, their key projects include feeding programs, scholarship programs, and medical assistance for those in need, most especially public school students.

For Maria Clarice E. Chavez, TUMBAS Foundation president, one of her motivations for helping these students is the belief that in the future, one way or another, these children will also be able to help their families. She explains, “We help our fellowmen because we cannot live for and by ourselves alone. To be truly successful, we should be able to help those in need.”


In support of TUMBAS Foundation’s initiatives, Pass It Forward introduced them to Stech, a corporate giver that champions children’s welfare programs. Stech’s donation was able to provide school supplies to five hundred children beneficiaries of TUMBAS. As a giveback, cleaning materials were also provided so that the parents can help put the school in order, and just in time for the start of classes too.

The innate goodness of the Filipino is not lost on Chavez. She believes that it is in the heart of the people to help, except that at times they feel limited by their own poverty. “Sometimes the only constraint is the thinking that they cannot help others because they are poor themselves,” said Chavez. “It’s not that. Help comes in many forms, not just in material things.”

The Pass It Forward movement resonates with TUMBAS Foundation because they believe that part of being successful is being able to help others. For Chavez, “Big or small, help is help. It has a huge impact on the person you’re lending a hand to, that even he is encouraged to help others himself.”
