ANCOP Edmonton, partners, holds groundbreaking rites
Friday, November 09, 2018
MANILA – A groundbreaking ceremony was conducted on May 30, 2018, for the joint housing project of the Rotary Homes District 3830 Development Foundation Inc, City of Parañaque and ANCOP-Edmonton Canada.
The new site will be accommodating 32 houses for families of Parañaque.
The ceremony was attended by partners and the people of Brgy. Moonwalk, Parañaque City where the site will be situated. Messages expressing their gratitude to the people who have been in one way or another helped in the project were given by Past District Governor Sid Garcia of Rotary Homes Foundation, District 3830 Governor Edwin Afzelius, Capt. Obet Olano of Brgy. Moonwalk, GP Chris Bracamonte of RC Parañaque East, Land donor PP Angel Tong, Bro. Lito Tayag and Bro. Ricky Cuenca of CFC ANCOP.
Representing CFC ANCOP – Edmonton, Canada who, in partnership with the RHDDF Inc, and the City of Parañaque, will fund the project, Cuenca in his message said: “Napakalaking blessing na magkaroon kami ng opportunity na maging bahagi nitong napakagandang gawain para makatulong tayo sa mga nangangailangan.”
He shared that the present housing project will be made as the model community which would mean that donors from the different parts of the world who will be interested to know more about the ongoing projects of CFC ANCOP will be brought there. He also shared that scholarship programs for the chosen beneficiaries are already in the pipeline.
“Ang aming layunin ay makatulong at mapaganda ang pamumuhay ninyo and for us, as members of Couples for Christ, is to bring Christ’s transforming love to all of you,” Cuenca tells the residents of the housing project.
The ceremony ended with a closing rite participated by the donors and partners present. (Yvonne Grace Dolorosa)
After the success of the pilot roll-out of Mobile Training Center in Salcedo, Samar last September 17-21, the second batch of trainees were set to undergo another Technical and Vocational Education Training for Parents (TVET-P) on the Mobile Training Center (MTC) on November 20-24. This was made possible with the partnership of SM Development Corporation (SMDC) and CFC ANCOP Global Foundation, Inc. (CAGFI) and is being facilitated again by skilled trainers from Don Bosco ONE TVET Philippines.
To further support this year’s ANCOP Global Walk, CFC Metro Manila East A Sector initiated a “Bowling for Education” activity, which aims to gather more funds in order to help more poor but deserving students through AGW. This was held last October 21, 2018 at Q Plaza Bowling Center, Cainta, Rizal.
