NEW EAST, INC. dissolution

To our dear Donors and Supporters of New East, Inc.:

Peace and blessings !

We regret to inform you that as of February 28, 2022, New East, Inc. (NEI) will be dissolved, and the US Secretary of State (SOS) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) would have been informed of said dissolution.

For EIGHTEEN YEARS since 2004, you have supported us ungrudgingly and continuously. We cannot tell you how grateful for this we have been and will be for as long as we live. So do our recipients of your help, namely, the people of Brookside, Bagong Silangan, Quezon City, Philippines.

We are closing NEI, our and your nonprofit after these 18 years with a heavy heart ! On the other hand, we are happy that those years of your support have borne fruits helping the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary’s dedicated sisters’ work on their programs such as:

Moral Formation, Livelihood, Homebuilding Project, Feeding program, Free Quality Private Elementary Education, Scholarship program, Consumer Membership Cooperative Store, Free Healthcare and Pay It Forward program (www.neweastinc.com).

It is with much pleasure to let you know that most, if not all, of the above programs have been quite successful, thanks to your financial help and prayers over the years. Most noteworthy have been Moral formation, Homebuilding, Feeding, Scholarship program and the Cooperative.

Both youth and adult programs in moral formation have been continuously manifested in the community since they were transferred to Brookside (www.newastinc.com). Homebuilding program continues over the years that most of the 300 families now own their individual homes, including the OFFICIAL HOUSE TITLES to them (Isn’t that just wonderful?!) And this means that most, if not all, the 300 families have stable jobs to sustain their households’ necessities.

Sadly, for lack of financing and necessary administration, the Free quality private education was afforded to the community only from 2004 to 2014. At present, only the prep-school is continuing with two teachers. However , most of the products of the 10 years’ graduates of the elementary school continuously went on to high school and to college.

My heart is overwhelmed to let you know that the Scholarship Program was very successful !! There were many college graduates from the community of Brookside, Bagong Silangan, who have been supported by you and other donors such as Ateneo de Manila, etc. , our youths have graduated with titles of BS Education, BS Pharmacy, BS Accountancy, BS Medical Technologists, BS in Entrepreneurship Hotel/Restaurant Managers, BS Criminology, AB History, AB Management & Human Resources, AB Philosophy, and other degrees from various well-known colleges and universities in Manila and Quezon City.

With this Scholarship program also, there are several successful candidates who passed their specific Philippine Government Board examinations such as pharmacists, medical technology, teachers, etc.. Let us thank and praise God for these youths.

When we honored these young graduates of Brookside last year, we charged them to “PAY IT FORWARD” and we got their promise to do so, being the honorable and wonderful youths that they are !

Another success which I am proud to announce, through the Leadership Training given, the community ably established a community association. The named this “Kapatiran San Jose Homeowners’ Association”. Leaders are elected every two years and/or if when necessary. They had the association legalized and is therefore easily able to obtain help from the government of Quezon city. The City government helped improve the community’s drainage system which was mostly causing the flooding of the community during rainy season. the government also provided the community with a covered basketball court for free.

The community established a legal Consumer Membership Cooperative Store. The cooperative is managed by the present president of the association and manned by paid community persons. It sells various necessities the prices of which are pegged to a minimum for its members’ benefit.

Without your continued support over the years, none of this would have tome to fruition. We sincerely thank you, from the bottom of our hearts !!!

Brookside Community Pantry

Another AYUDA at the community of Brookside, Bagong Silangan was introduced by the community’s organization called “ Brookside Youth Servants of Christ”(BYSC).

It is called the COMMUNITY PANTRY which CHARITY is the mechanics behind the flow of FREE goods, mostly everyday foods.

In essence, it brings back the “barter system” which was prevalent way back in the 1700’s and 1800’s, although this time, foods freely change hands

There are two signs either in the Pilipino or English, behind the foodstuffs and can be interpreted as
(1) ”Give according to your ability”
(2) “Take according to your need”

The first sign is addressed to anonymous donors and/or takers
And the second is to everyone in need of whatever foodstuff is on the table.



New East, Inc. (NEI) thanks its supporters for their donations. It distributed much needed rice to 300 families in Brookside, Bagong Silangan and some of their neighboring barangay where some former Brookside teachers are residing.


Gift Giving 2020!

Media Noche in the Philippines is New Year’s Eve celebration which everyone looks forward to the large spread of food to feast on. The late Sr. Cora, fmm wants every family to gather in one table where values and stories are shared and that is the reason behind why we continue the tradition of gift-giving. Each family received two big black boxes which includes goods for every families’ medianoche and we are forever grateful for your unending support.


Happy New Year!


Ending the year with a heart full of gratitude. Despite the typhoon Ulysses that drowns the community of Bagong Silangan with up to 8ft flood, the still on going pandemic – we are able to celebrate Christmas and New Year. Thank you for being the instrument to remind us that the lord will never forsake us. We just have to remain faithful and steadfast.



To our dear DONORS this year 2020:
With grateful hearts, we at New East, Inc. join the community of Brookside, Bagong Silangan, for your valuable help this year despite the downfall in the economy of the world. Despite the hardships encountered during this year of the dreadful pandemic, you stuck it out helping our dear brothers and sisters in Christ. Really, for this, we are ever thankful !!!! You must have heard that the entire community of Brookside went under water last month, when the series of super typhoons (Quinta, Rolly, Siony, Tony, Ulysses) stormed the Philippines’ largest island, Luzon. The last typhoon Ulysses was the strongest one that flooded all the houses in the community up to and including the second floor. Almost all of the houses consist of one-storey, so the residents were evacuated for several days at higher grounds and donated cooked food was served. Despite their hardship and lost clothing and house belongings, the people were grateful nobody drowned unlike in the year 2008’s big flood caused by typhoon “Ondoy”. Really, THANK YOU, our BIG BROTHERS and SISTERS:
