CFC ANCOP Continues to be a Beacon of Hope Among Poor Students
Friday, May 05, 2017

The CFC Ancop Child Sponsorship Program (CSP) has been providing sustained educational support to the poor ever since it was officially launched in 2010.  As of May 2017, a total of 9,065 poor students in elementary, high school, vocational and college levels nationwide have received financial support for tuition fee, food and transportation allowances, uniforms, school bags/shoes and other school related benefits.

For school year 2016-17, 268 poor students have completed 4-5 year college courses in the field of Business/Entrepreneurship, Education, Engineering, Agriculture, Information Technology, Social Work/Community Development, Hotel Restaurant Management/Tourism and Social Sciences, mostly from state college and universities.  The graduates were supported by CFC Ancop through its network of foreign and local donor partners, including proceeds from the Ancop Global Walk (AGW) of the sectoral and provincial teams.  On the average, the scholars received funding support for at least three (3) school years.

Leading the pack of graduates is Lora Catahay of Ancop Negros Occidental, who completed her Elementary Education degree, MAGNA CUM LAUDE, at the Central Visayas State University. Lora was continuously supported by Ancop Singapore for a period of 7 years. Likewise, six (6) other Ancop scholars were honored with CUM LAUDE citations, namely:

Lloyd Christian Calvario (East B), BS Banking and Finance, Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP), Ancop USA;

Mar John Cruz (Bulacan), BS in Information Technology, PUP, AGW;

Sheena Shane Santos (Cavite), BS in Entrepreneurial Management, Technological University of the Phil., AGW;

Christian Louie Quahong (Presentation of the Lord Parish), Bachelor of  Technical Teaching Education, Marikina Polytechnic College, UAE;

Sheila Galit (North A), BS in Psychology, La Concepcion College, Ancop Canada;

Regina Pacite (South A), BS Hotel and Restaurant Management, Cavite State University, AGW;

Raymond Denver Buenaseda was cited as one of the outstanding students of the UP System, he is slated to graduate in June 2017 with a degree in Agricultural Economics, Cum Laude at the UPLB. Jim Martin de la Cruz was in the Honor List when he completed Multi Media Arts at the De La Salle College of Saint Benilde, he now works with ABS-CBN network.  The list of Deans’ Lister among the Ancop scholars is long proving that the poor can excel if provided with much needed financial, parental and community support.

Truly, the urban and rural poor, people with disabilities, orphans, neglected children and youth and indigenous peoples have attained significant changes in their lives for a better future through the CSP.
