New Year. New Bright Start Partnerships. New Bright Start Angels.

“To the world you may be one person, but for one person you may be the world.” ~ Heather Cortez

Bright Start was born out of our advocacy to promote early detection and to provide early intervention for children with special needs. Bright Start patients were duly referred by the medical staff of Barangay Apas Health Center. The patient and their families were then provided occupational therapy services including evaluation, therapy and home instruction programs. Apart from this, they also had Bright Start Angels who would sponsor much-needed vitamins, milk, and medicines such as anticonvulsants for those with seizure disorders.

Our Bright Start babies have grown and what they need now is special education services. We are overjoyed with Kite Strings Developmental Center’s offer to provide discounted special education services to Bright Start patients. Sandry Sy and Carlina Roa of Kite Strings have always been Bright Start Heroes by donating toys for Bright Start beneficiaries. Now, they are donating their resources, time, and effort. Much appreciated! They will start with one child for the month of January. The arrangement is for Bright Start to shoulder P100.00 per one-on-one session and to instill a sense of responsibility; the special student will pay P50.00 per session.

This new partnership has brought new Bright Start Angels as well! Charise Cooper, Perty Luciano, and Yadell Mondares will be sponsoring the special education sessions for Bright Start patients.  Thank you so much!

The first student will be little boy J.P. (we can't place real name for confidentiality), a Bright Start baby since he was 6 months old. He has Cerebral Palsy and Seizure Disorder. He is now 3 years old and his mother has expressed utmost gratitude to everyone for supporting their family. J.P.'s mother actively helps Bright Start when we have to distribute donations such as books to Barangay Apas Day Care centers.

We're looking forward to updates on how he is doing in school. A dream come true for the family and for Bright Start!
