The University of St. La Salle through the Institute for Negros Development (IND) received 2 special citations during the Jollibee Group Foundation (JGF) Partners Learning Workshop in Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ortigas, Pasig City last May 5. 

USLS was recognized for having the most number of managed schools (122 BLT schools) for SY 2014-15 (University/NGO/DepEd category).

Another citation was given to USLS for being the implementing partner of Buenaventura V. Rodriguez Elementary School, one of the Top 10 Regional Finalists to the 1st BLT Excellence Awards.

The partners learning workshop is the national gathering of the BLT partners to celebrate the successful implementation of BLT this school year and to commemorate Jollibee Group Foundation’s 10 years of existence – a decade of sharing joy to the various communities in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

USLS and JGF have been partners for 6 years already and have served more than 15,000 public school children, their schools, parents and teachers.

The USLS-JGF partnership has survived years of learning curves and championed numerous best practices in school feeding program and special feeding for the communities hit by calamities.

USLS and JGF will continue implementing the BLT school feeding program in Negros and will extend stronger ties with the Department of Education for the School Based Feeding Program (SBFP) this coming school year.
