Work It Out


2016-03-17 22:19:29

Life is full of ups and downs. We struggle in this world to overcome obstacles toward success. For this, a lot of hard work is necessary. During my childhood, up until now I still remember the phrase that my parents used to tell me. ‘’ To become a better and a successful person, you must have to sacrifice and always think positively so that the result of your sacrifices would be fruitful.’’

Success has always been my motivation during my stint at the Center of Industrial Technology and Enterprise (CITE) Technical Institute, Inc. I always made sure that I put my best foot forward and never give up on my dreams. Inspired by the generosity the people in my school showed me, I never entertain the idea of not finishing a course; I know with God there is always a way.

The Juanito I. King Foundation, Inc. (JIKFI) played an immense role during my trying times. The scholarship it had granted me wasn’t just a mere sponsorship; it was a ray of hope. For three (3) years of my study, I never had to worry about tuition fee and it enabled me to focus on something else. I started to do odd jobs like working for a canteen to get free lunch and dinner even doing deliveries just to cover my daily expenses and school projects. By spearheading various curricular activities and school events, I learned to lead by example, stressing the importance of hard-work and perseverance. I also become an officer of some organizations and was awarded with distinct leadership honors. For me, it was an achievement, even more so when I graduated with honors from my Electromechanics Technology course last November 2015. I was able to prove to myself and to my family that I can do things aided by hard work, dedication, gratefulness and faith in God.

I am thankful to God because He has always guided and strengthened me to accomplish tasks no matter how challenging those may be. My teachers, the Opus Dei Congregation played a role in encouraging me and my colleagues to never stop learning. The trust and the confidence that JIKFI gave motivated me to become an achiever and to do ordinary things extraordinarily well.

Thank you Juanito I. King Foundation, Inc. for making me a scholar, giving me a future and a hope for my family! Rest assured, now that I become a CITE staff, I shall continue to impart the values the school and the foundation imparted and inspire other by sharing my story. - Melijandyl Delatina, JIKFI Scholar

PCNC awards a 5-year ‘Donee Institution’ certification to JIKFI


2015-07-31 19:39:11

The Philippine Council for NGO Certification (PCNC) has recently awarded and accredited the Juanito I. King Foundation, Inc. (JIKFI) a five (5) year-certification for the ‘Donee Institution Status’ until 2020, after successfully passing a tedious evaluation last April of the same year. JIKFI is also licensed and registered under the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Region-7 and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

An important consideration for PCNC in awarding a certification is not only in passing the standards, but rather the demonstration of improvements in organizational functioning and its sustainability. This year’s accreditation was the second application of the Foundation as a ‘Donee Institution’. In 2012, JIKFI’s first application earned a rare three (3) year-certification and our proved performance earned us five (5).

The 5-year period as “Donee Institution” given to the foundation, allows us to continuously implement our programs, strengthening our transparency and credibility by which our vision and mission is founded. Our sustainable programs geared toward Education, Health and Special Advocacy include helping Children with Special Needs coming from the marginalized sector through its DREAM project, College and Technical-Vocational Scholarships, the Mobile Dental Van Project catering more than 20,000 beneficiaries with dental needs, Meal-Sharing Activities and Tree Planting among others.

JIKFI is accepting requests for dental missions to any point in Cebu City and Cebu Province. Interested parties may contact 415-5963 loc 107 for more information and look for Zhea, or visit JIKFI office at 6F RKF Holdings, Cebu Holdings Center, Cebu Business Park, Cebu City. (PR-Roca)

Bridging Digital Divide in Tabunan Integrated School


2015-03-05 03:47:40

When Juanito I. King Foundation Inc. (JIKFI) launched the Bridging Digital Divides (BDD) Project in Tabunan Integrated School, the community welcomed the project with great anticipation. The students and teachers alike were excited to know that Tabunan was one of the lucky schools to benefit from the project.

The first year of the project was a struggle. Most pupils had no idea what a computer looks like or how they function and what they are for. Over time, the students became more eager to learn and it helped us get out from that scenario gradually. They were indeed grateful that they would no longer be left out by other students studying in the city. Even the parents were glad to know that their children were given the chance to be taught with the modern technology in spite of being far from modernization. I myself, as the computer teacher, was challenged to meet the objectives of the project. Because of BDD, I was sent to different seminars on ICT that equipped me. (Well, I cannot give what I don’t have.) Not only were my teaching skills in computer developed, but also the value of commitment to my task as the computer laboratory manager. Undeniably, these students’ learning experience would not be the same if not for the BDD project. Though there were organizations and government units that had given the same project to the school, it was only JIKFI that was able to sustain it until now. On the other hand, the installation of the LED monitor and the air-condition unit helped the students to focus on the lessons/topics being taught. The computer laboratory provided by BDD also serves as an asset to invite more students to enrol in our school. Likewise, I can observe that my students are very much excited to have their computer classes every time. Now, you can see these kids in front of the computer doing their assignments and projects with enthusiasm. I can say my efforts are not in vain. Praise God!

In behalf of our school head, teachers and parents, I would like to thank the foundation for choosing Tabunan Integrated School to be a beneficiary of the BDD project. I hope you will multiply your generosity to other beneficiaries/schools. The facilities you have given to us were a great help in our school especially to the poor children of our farmers. Your kindness left a footprint in our hearts. Thank you so much. God bless and more power!

-Michelle Pador, Computer Laboratory Manager

Bridging Digital Divide - A Computerization Project


2015-03-05 03:39:25

Through the Juanito I. King Foundation, Inc. (JIKFI) Bridging Digital Divides Project (BDD), the Nito’s International Ventures, Inc. (NIVI) joins the Adopt-a-School program in partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd). The launching was done last July 19, 2013 together with representatives from current partners, the Center for Industrial Technology and Enterprise(CITE) and the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Cebu City. The opening ceremonies commenced in the venues of the beneficiary integrated schools in Brgy. Tabunan, and Brgy. Buot on the same date. The event was attended by Mr. David Ian King, General Manager of NIVI; Mr. Kenneth King, Executive Director of JIKFI; and JIKFI Board of Trustees, Mr. John Philip King and Ms. Kristine Gaisano. Also in attendance were Hon. Vice Mayor Edgar Labella, Dr. Rhea Mar Angtud of DepEd, Mr. Joey Baclayon of Cebu City Agriculture Dept., and Mr. Marlon Valencia of CITE.

BDD is a two-year project under JIKFI’s education program that focuses on the computerization of public schools in the mountainous barangays of Cebu City and Mandaue City. With a holistic approach to improving Information Technology (IT) awareness among school children, JIKFI is committed to the provision of trainings for teachers from the beneficiary schools and donation of brand new computers. Basic computer trainings for teachers were conducted by CITE two months before the formal opening of the laboratories. Monitoring and evaluation for this project will be done by JIKFI quarterly for the next two years.

Prior to the turnover ceremonies, JIKFI provided major modifications to the existing computer laboratories in each school before the new computers were provided. Each laboratory was also equipped with a 32” LED TV setup to assist the teachers in classroom instructions and air conditioning units to make it more conducive for learning.

During the ceremonies, school administrators Mr. Ricardo Aman of Dr. Emilio Osmeña Integrated School and Mr. Nathaniel Flores, former principal of Tabunan Integrated School, expressed their gratitude towards the involved institutions in choosing their respective schools. Citing the lack of computers to aid the IT education of the students, they said that projects like these are essential for the schools in the mountainous barangays. `Through this project, the children are looking to a brighter future ahead of them.’
