March 29, 2014. Part of iLearners Inc.’s Phase 2 in our literacy program and reaching out to schools in rural Cebu, the organization initiated an Educational tour to 11 graduates of one of our adopted schools, Lunas Elementary School in Calidngan Carcar.
iLearners Inc., a non-profit charitable organization whose mission is in line with fighting illiteracy and working on projects promoting education to the less privileged children of rural Cebu partnered with Cebu Tourism Office, Greenwich Pizza and Sweet Little Things for iLearners Educational Tour 2014, where the students get to visit the historical places of Cebu and learn more about animals in Cebu Zoo.
The Educational Tour itinerary is as follows: the Basilica Minore del Santo Nino, Magellan’s Cross, Fort San Pedro, Casa Corordo, Cebu Zoo and Taoist Temple.
For most of the students, it’s their first time in the city and the enthusiasm was evident as their eyes wander with excitement as we visit one place to another. Though some students who weren’t used to traveling and commuting for long hours took the toll and got motion sickness. But thank God for oil liniment and old style hilot from the teachers, they recuperated fast and get to learn and at the same time enjoy the Educational Tour. Lunch was provided by our awesome kabarkada, Greenwich Pizza. And the kids were also treated with yummy cupcakes from Sweet Little Things.
And a side trip to the mall before hopping back into their van to the Carcar added an extra inch to those happy smiles. We went to Ayala Center Cebu where they participated in some of the Earth Hour Events. They even left a message on the freedom wall!
The first iLearners Educational Tour was attended by 2014 graduating class of Lunas Elementary School, 6 teachers and 11 members of iLearners Inc. With your support and help, we wish to continue our literacy program to specifically address the problems of the students in rural Cebu.

iLuvCebu and iLearners Inc. would like to acknowledge the support and help of Cebu City Mayor Mike Rama, Ms. Georgia Chionbian-Rama and Cinbeth Orellano, Ms. Charo Baller del Mar of Greenwich Pizza and PJ Lee of Sweet Little Things.
And congratulations to the graduates of Lunas Elementary School
