ANCOP Global Walk
The ANCOP Global Walk or AGW is our annual event conducted to help raise funds for our Education programs such as the Cornerstone and Education Sponsorship Program (ESP). This activity intends to create a move to help our youth in the peripheries to attain an education rightful for them.
CFC ANCOP Canada initiated the walk in their various cities 14 years ago. It was then embraced by other countries were CFC are present. In the Philippines, the annual walk started in 2011.
AGW is held in different provinces around the Philippines and several areas in other countries including Australia, Canada, Europe, Middle East, Asia, Africa and the United States. This is joined by the members of the Couples for Christ community, generous individual, sponsors and partners. The annual event is mainly open for everyone who also wants to help.
The walk for the scholars also aims for the realization of helping the families be uplifted from poverty. We believe that supporting children in going to school can make a difference in their homes. It is an avenue for a brighter path towards their future.
As of September 2017, ANCOP Global Walk has raised over 114 million pesos and supported 2552 scholars around the country.
