Heartfelt greetings from GFF HELPS Philippines!
It is our great pleasure to finally present to you the GFF HELPS Philippines successful and on-going projects in the year 2020 in Aklan, Philippines. Aklan, as the oldest province in the Philippines, which is known for her rich culture and history, wonderful nature and people, keeps withstanding the challenges that pandemic brings. The Philippine Team has embraced the new normal setting of volunteering activities in Aklan, despite all the overwhelming adjustments, we have been able to serve and continue what we have started since the start of the year. This year has been a roller coaster to all of us but we have gone through it all – and will cope with what the future brings – through the GFF HELPS unity and God’s love and grace.
Just before the Philippine Government announced lockdown, the GFF HELPS Philippines conducted a number of projects including Reading Workshop and Mobile Library, Adult Natural Science Learning Program, Women’s Empowerment Program, Vegetable Garden Project, Digital Literacy Program, Free Webinars, Online Storytelling, Online Sports Project, Online Sewing Project Webinar Course and Solar Project. These projects are carefully executed with collaboration to Aklan Local Government and the GFF HELPS Philippine Team with observance to COVID-19 Protocols.
The GFF HELPS Philippines Team has always been inspired in accomplishing these philanthropic deeds through the guidance and dedication of our Sir Saom and through the selfless love and unending support of our Sir Owen Glenn.
Our sincerest gratitude to our local partners, our International Team, everyone behind the Glenn Family Foundation and most importantly, Sir Owen.
