our mission . . . .
As a charitable organization, PaniqueniansUSA, Inc. has a multifaceted goal to be of assistance to the unfortunate and needy citizens of the town of Paniqui, Tarlac, Philippines. One of its goals is to provide educational scholarship to intelligent and academically deserving students in high school and college whose families are not able to support them due to meager income. This project was initiated in 1989 and is on going until the present.
Since the year 2000, a Medical, Dental and Optical Mission was established to be performed every two years in our hometown of Paniqui. Volunteers from these fields are recruited both from the United States and the province of Tarlac to participate in this noteworthy mission. Our deserving scholars also provide their assistance to this event.
To provide reading materials, books were donated to the elementary schools and the library.
Throughout each year the organization holds income generating events such as the annual fiesta, bus tours and casino trips to help maintain our commitments to these charitable projects.
