CFC ANCOP—Beacon of Hope for Poor Students

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 fees, food and transportation allowances, uniforms, school  bags/shoes  and  other  school related benefits. 


As  of  2017, 268 scholars  have  completed  4-5  year  college  courses  in  the fields 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  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 seven years. 


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,  CFC UAE;
  • Sheila Galit (North A), BS in Psychology, La Concepcion College, ANCOP Canada; and
  • Regina Pacite (South A), BS Hotel and Restaurant Management, Cavite State University, AGW.


Raymond  Denver  Buenaseda,  who was  cited  as  one  of  the outstanding students of the UP System, is slated to graduate in June 2017 with a degree in Agricultural Economics,  cum  laude, from UP at Los Baños. Jim Martin de la Cruz, who was in the Honors List when he  completed  Multimedia  Arts  at  the De  La  Salle  College  of Saint  Benilde, now works with ABS-CBN network. The  number  of  Deans’  Listers 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 experienced significant changes in their lives and now look to a better future through the CSP. (Efren Tompong)
