There is this ‘sinulbong’ (innovated bottle lamp) which gives light to these Domingo sisters who have full of dreams in life. Shena and Shella, 11, are still studying their notes at night even the school year has already ended this month”, Cabacungan shared. The twins who have bold- spirit, perseveres to finish their education even they are hard up to handle their situation. Although they have lack of needs to support their schooling, the Domingo family help each other to bring these girls in school. The twins are hoping that they can achieve all their dreams in life as long as the blaze of their lamp will continue to light their own paths – he added.
