On screen, Cardo Dalisay looks after many children and voluntarily takes on the role of a foster parent. Behind the scenes, Coco Martin is not so different. Back in 2017, it was revealed on his YouTube Channel Coco Martin PH that he will be paying for the tuition fees of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano child stars Dang Ramos, Ligaya Ngujo, and Paquito Sagarino.
“Walang papantay sa saya ko po na makapag-school,” Dang expressed her gratitude. At the time, they promised not to disappoint him. They knew how important the opportunity was.Now, they had the chance to show off the fruit of their hard work. As a special treat for passing their classes, they received a reward from the lead cop.
The three presented their report cards to Coco on set. They boasted about not failing a single class and even earning some awards. So, the Kapamilya actor gifted them each with sneakers of their choice. “Thank you Kuya Coco sa pagpapaaral mo po sa amin,” Dang said. “Thank you rin po sa sapatos na binigay n’yo po sa amin,” Paquito added. They promise to continue working hard on set and in school. “Mas pagbubutihin ko po ang pag-aaral ko, mas gagalingan ko po,” Ligaya said.
In a visit on Magandang Buhay, the three of them talked about how Coco handpicked them to take on roles on FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. Paquito and Ligaya were both chosen when the cast’s tour in Cebu during the Sinulog Festival. On the other hand, Dang auditioned to be part of the primetime drama.
It is moments like these that show how much of a hero Coco Martin is in real life too. Do not miss Dang, Paquito, and Ligaya on FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano! They are only three lives out of the many that Coco has changed.
