CFC ANCOP Strengthens Partnership with Caritas Manila
Monday, September 04, 2017
CFC ANCOP Global Foundation Inc. and Caritas Manila signed a Memorandum of Agreement last October 27, 2015 to strengthen the Youth Servant Leadership and Education Program or YSLEP. YSLEP is Caritas Manila’s program to help poor and deserving youth, especially those affected by typhoons and disaster, finish their college education.
Caritas Manila Executive Director Rev. Fr. Anton CT Pascual, in his remarks during the signing, expressed gratitude to the Lord for this beautiful partnership. He thanked ANCOP for providing vital support to enable poor students complete their four-year courses. One important aspect of this partnership is community building which would help the parents of the scholars with livelihood opportunities.
The CFC ANCOP delegation at the signing ceremonies, which was held at the Caritas Manila office included Jimmy Ilagan, ANCOP President; Elmer Cadiz, Operations Manager and Ethelyn Balenton, Education Program Head. Caritas Manila was represented by Rev. Fr. Anton CT Pascual, Executive Director and Helen Oreto, Social Development Head.
Caritas Manila is currently supporting 5,000 college students under its Youth Servant Leadership and Education Program. On the other hand, CFC ANCOP has 6,900 scholars under its Child Sponsorship Program (CSP). (Romy M. Medina)
