The Tsinelas Diaries

What is Tsinelas

WHAT IS TSINELAS?
TSINELAS ASSOCIATION INC. is a non-government, non-stock, non-profit organization that gives educational assistance to poor students in mountain barangays and depressed areas in Cebu.

WHAT IS ITS VISION?
TSINELAS envisions a just and humane society where the basic right to education is upheld and where poverty is not a hindrance to learning. It is a society where those who have more in life help those who have less, and where everyone works for the common good.

WHAT IS ITS MISSION?
TSINELAS commits to help in the educational formation of poor students, in the ongoing formation of those responsible for their education, and in ensuring an environment that is conducive to learning.

WHAT ARE ITS OBJECTIVES?
1. To spend for the students’ basic school needs, like tuition, school fees, uniforms and school supplies.
2. To help provide students with holistic formation through values formation and personality development seminars.
3. To help teachers, parents and other members of the community in their task of providing quality education to students
4. To help improve school facilities

WHO ARE ITS MEMBERS?
TSINELAS is composed of students, teachers, social workers and professionals sharing a passion to be of service to others.

IS IT REGISTERED WITH SEC?
TSINELAS was formed in October 2003 and was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission in February 2004 under Registration No. CN200425206. It is also registered with the Bureau of Internal Revenue. It links with other groups that are into similar advocacy and operates alongside local government units and the Department of Education.

WHY “TSINELAS”?
A pair of slippers is a fitting symbol of what the organization aims to do: to provide comfort to children in need and ensure that their right to education is respected.

  1. hi, i read about TSINELAS on one of the local papers and i am very interested in being a part of your cause. i am very impressed with the passion that you guys have and how dedicated you are in making education accessible to those who need and thirst for it.
    i feel exactly the same way. i believe it is our job to make the younger generation and the young at hearts discover just how important education is. there is this inexplicable source of pride and satisfaction when we have shared a part of ourselves to others; and, they have in turn, learned to value their worth, expand their knowledge, improve themselves, and chose to pay it forward…and all because of one experience that we all enjoyed.
    what do i need to do to join? thank you.
