PREPARATIONS FOR AGW 2019 HAS NOW STARTED
Friday, March 08, 2019
After a successful and fruitful ANCOP Global Walk 2018 with the theme “One Nation Walks for Education,” AGW 2019 was now officially launched to the CFC Metro Manila Heads last February 27 to formally start its preparations, and to excite everyone to walk once again for the education of our poor brethren.
This was spearheaded by Bro. Barry Tad-y, CFC MM South B Sector Head, as this year’s AGW Overall Event Head, assisted by Bro. Jojo Solis, CFC MM East B Sector Head, and Bro. Lay Laya, CFC MM Central A in marketing AGW. This year’s theme was also introduced to the attendees, which is “Light-Up My Life,” consistent to CFC’s theme this year, “Awake, Arise, Fulfill: Live as Children of Light.”
The kick-off meeting was also made productive with an open forum focused on the strategies that each sectors made during AGW 2018. This was to help the team improve, and to inspire other sectors on how they will raise more funds to surpass Metro Manila’s record last year, which reached Php30 Million out of the Php49 Million raised nationwide. With this, the 5% admin fee for each sector was also released.
ANCOP Global Walk 2019 will happen on November 17, 2019, alongside the celebration for the World Day of the Poor.
ANCOP USA, a generous and dependable partner of CFC ANCOP Global Foundation, Inc., through its various programs, made another valuable mark by responding to the call of Pope Francis to help save Mother Earth (Laudato si’). They agreed to finance the installation of a 3.24 kW OFF-GRID Solar PV System of the Our Lady of Banneux (OLB) ANCOP Multi-purpose Hall. Included also in the solar power provision are the street lighting and park facilities.
