Starting the Year with two ANCOP Canada Scholars

The current Service Program of Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) included a visit to the ANCOP Canada Village in Our Lady of Banneux site in San Mateo, Rizal. This was a great opportunity for Bernie Consul, ANCOP Greater Toronto Area East Sector Head, to have a reunion with their scholars, who reside near the village.



Spending time with the scholars was quite an experience, according to Bernie, who lamented that his wife Belen was not there to share it with him. “It was a touching and memorable bonding experience not only for the scholars but most especially for me”.During his visit, he was able to meet Donald, who dreams to be in the hotel and restaurant industry, and Angelica, who wants to take up Architecture after high school. Both scholars are being sponsored by the Consul family. The two young students likewise expressed their gratitude to Bernie and Belen for their trust in them.



Consul encouraged all education sponsors to get in touch with their scholars. “If you have a scholar and happen to be in the Philippines, do arrange to meet your scholar. It will be a life-changing experience not only for your scholar, but for you too. Getting to know your scholars will make you feel good about making ANCOP your charity of choice.”



The ANCOP Canada office can arrange meet-ups through the CFC ANCOP office in Manila. Consul advised, “I always say to people I meet: “If you save one poor child from poverty and if you are able to give hope to that one poor child, our Lord Jesus Christ will reward you with a passport to His heavenly Kingdom where we will all end up one day.” [Bernie and Belen Consul currently hold the position of ANCOP Canada GTA East Coordinators. Their son, Michael, leads the Service Program of TCDSB. (www.ancopcanada.org)
