Transforming Communities Together

As one of LFI’s Success Stories, the Lao Foundation, in partnership with Don Bosco Agro-Mechanical Technology Center (Legazpi) Inc., puts the spotlight on one of its scholars from Batch 2020 that continues to serve as a model and inspiration in his community. The story of Ryan Timog is about determination, collaboration, and working together to achieve a common goal.

In this video feature, Ryan, who is from Oas, a rural area in Albay, shares the different challenges and difficulties that he had to face in his journey. Though there were moments of self-doubt and wanting to give up, Ryan emphasized the importance of staying committed to yourself and your goals in order to achieve them.

This story also features the significance of the effective partnership of Lao Foundation and Don Bosco Agro-Mechanical Technology Center (Legazpi), Inc. Through collaboration and a shared objective, the two organization’s interventions are more purposeful and impactful to the students and the community.

LFI would like to thank Ryan Timog and his family for welcoming the LFI and Don Bosco Legazpi team with open arms, allowing us to share their story, and treating the team like family.


LFI would also like to thank Don Bosco Agro-Mechanical Technology Center in Legazpi, Albay for the constant guidance and support that they provide for our scholars. LFI hopes that you continue to play an active role in the formation of your students.
