Last October, 2012, was the groundbreaking ceremony for the Mottainai Reading Center in the Paaralang Sentral ng Cabuyao, sponsored by Office Busters Japan and our foundation. Top management of both sponsors, as well as the teachers, administration, and local government officials attended.

 

Mrs. Josefina K. Limcaoco, Mr. Kotaro Adachi, Mr. Masayoshi Kumagai, and Mr. Felix K. Limcaoco, sit in attendance.

A simple blessing. The gentle rain shower was looked upon as a sign of good luck.

The Reading Center is scheduled to open in the summer of 2013. Our storytelling sessions and remedial reading lessons will be held here.

Mottainai means “no wasted resources” in Japanese.
