The magnificent “Mang Inasal” makes the long-time and much-awaited dream of the Ilonggos happen.

It takes Edgar “Injap” Sia II to transform the then proposed Iloilo City Community College (ICCC) to a reality and opens its doors to hundreds of poor but deserving students.

Injap’s generosity paved way for the establishment of P30-M four-storey ICCC building on its 869-sq-m site in Corner Tiolas-M.H. del Pilar Streets in Molo district.

The philanthropist who has the heart and mind for pushing quality public education to greater heights of glory and achievement makes possible ICCC’s aim and goal as the city’s centerpiece of educational development.

“We believe that education is the best way to fight poverty,” the head of Injap Foundation Inc. stressed in giving the gift of knowledge and learning to the Ilonggos.

Injap donated the green-colored college building complete with facilities and fixtures now being enjoyed by its 200-pioneer students, school management, faculty and staff.

Ilonggos who may have found it difficult to finish college because of financial constraints have now found a new home to prepare them for a brighter future.
