Manila Bulletin August 28, 2018

The Philippine U19 National Rugby Development Team defeated Hong Kong for the first time recently in the opening match of the International Development Series.

The future batch of the Philippine Volcanoes, better known as rising stars, put together a stellar performance to outplay their opponents 36 to 12 in sunny conditions at the Southern Plains Sports Field, Calamba.

It was the visitors who opened up the scoring 5 points to nil early in the match, however it wasn’t long until the local heroes put together some teamwork of their own. Lyndon Adlao, an experienced member of both the Eagles RFC and previous National Youth Teams, continued to show why he was force, as he lead from the front, on all facets play. Adlao broke the defensive line early with a barnstorming run for his first try.

A strong display from the Philippine backline kept the Philippines in the match, pressuring the Hong Kong Warriors and capitalizing on their strong defense. It wasn’t long until Adlao swooped again, finding loose ball and open space to score his second try and take the Volcanoes to a 12 to 5 lead after 20 minutes of regular play.

The Philippine forward pack continued to provide strong go forward from Marco Xavier Tan and Fausto Eizmendi. Coach Carlito Abono opted for an early injection for some fresh impact. Abono called upon Reymarc Faller Bustillo of the Makati Chiefs who proved to be a notable difference.

“This is the first time I have seen our local development team play this outstanding, to put on 36 points against a team like the Hong Kong Warriors, it’s tremendous to see. Reymarc Bustillo for me was outstanding, strong runner and very fast off his feet, he had an outstanding game” said Jake Letts of Philippine Rugby

“Proud of the guys, proud Coach and mentor. We still need to be ready on Monday, so our game face is still on,” said Abono.

March 4, 2018.  Insular Life Theater, Muntinlupa City.  The cast of Lion King came to watch a production of the Musical Jesus Christ Superstar by Tuloy Foundation.  They could not believe  "how amateurs could be so professional" and they gave  our kids a standing ovation  which moved many of the JCS cast to tears. "We  did not waste our time coming here. And enjoyed every minute of it."   they said.  And to express just how happy they were  the Cast of Lion King gave free front-seat tickets to our kids and on May 8 the cast would come to Tuloy and give acting/singing/instrumentation workshops to our children. Yes Oh Wow.

Miss World 2017 bestows Humanitarian Award to Fr. Rocky and Tuloy Foundation, Inc.

Fr. Marciano 'Rocky' Evangelista SDB of Tuloy Foundation is given the Humanitarian Award at the recently concluded Coronation Night of  Miss World 2017  held in China last November 18, 2017.

The woman who redefined Beauty Pageants, promises to always make Tuloy a part of the Miss World brand.

The ever inspiring Julia Morley has left her heart in Tuloy.  It was she who rediscovered the soul of beauty contests by promoting "Beauty with a Purpose."   Although Ate Cory Quirino was no longer directly involved with the Brand, it was heart warming to be assured that the Miss World franchise will never abandon our abandoned kids.  

What truly touched us deeply however was when she, on live TV, rallied  support for Fr. Rocky and the mission of Tuloy during the  Miss World Philippine Contest. 

Thank  you Ms Julia not only for acknowledging the extraordinary beauty you saw in our kids  but also for encouraging all those who have made Tuloy the reality that it is.  

Nelson Mandela's grandson visits Tuloy and shares meaningful memories with our Kids

Last September 2, 2017, the grandson of  Nelson Mandela, Zwelivelile Mandlesizwe Mandela Chief of the Royal House of Mandela and Honorable member of  the Parliament of South Africa has honored Tuloy sa Don Bosco with his presence. In  his inspiring message he recalled how his grandfather left open the gates of their home for any person to come in ("Tuloy po"). It was therefore normal for him so see total strangers walking around their compound. Having been embraced by our street kids was very humbling for him to remember how street kids in South Africa used to walk up and embrace his grandfather.

The Chief was amazed to once again relive the bond that South Africa has with Tuloy. In March of 2010 our kids participated in the First  Deloitte Street Child World Cup (SCWC) held in Durban South Aftrica. The Shield trophy, the only award given out in the event apart from the championship crown, was given to the RP team for their hard-earned 2-1 win over host South Africa. But what everyone could not forget about that day was how our victorious kids took the flag of South Africa and ran waving it around the stadium to the warm and emotional applause of the home crowd. 

We are sure that Fr. Rocky could very well relate with Nelson Mandela who once said that "Sports has the power to change the world."
