“When I wasn’t able to continue my education, I felt discouraged. I felt empty and hopeless.” This was expressed by Lyca Mae Caminos, 19-years old, who is one of the ten scholars who graduated from a 6-month training course in hotel and restaurant management in Bluewater Academy last February 1, 2016. She also finished on top of the graduating class.
4Ever40 Sisterhood Association, Inc. in partnership with the Cebu Provincial Government, through the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office and Bluewater Academy of Maribago Bluewater Resort sponsored the scholarship program.
The ten female scholars come from San Remegio, Bantayan, Sta. Fe and Medellin towns, which were among the areas affected by super typhoon Yolanda.
In selecting the scholars, Bluewater Academy conducted an exam and interview in the abovementioned four municipalities and picked 10 for the said program.
The scholars, high school graduates with honors, were trained by Bluewater Academy for six months with free accommodation, monthly allowance, and a guaranteed job after the training.
