Last week I visited Father Marcianio “Rocky” G. Evangelista, founder of the Tuloy Sa Don Bosco Foundation in Luzon. It’s incredible beautiful what this Father achieved: all homeless and orphans who knock on his door and then are taken into his programme.
The programme comprises of self-realization, sports but surely also discipline. Therefore the use of tablets and smartphones is not allowed for these kids (and we all know how it sometimes irritates us when we see our own kids using these). Father Rocky’s coaches are young adults, who grew up in his community. At this moment 250 kids live in the village and the next expansion is on it’s way; also a new indoor sports hall.
I attended four finals of the Allianz/Liga Eskwela competition and Tuloy won three finals and lost one final! I must admit that Father Rocky has a good football background himself.
I’ve seldom seen such a beautiful project and I hope I have the time to go back some day and conduct a short course.
