By Leah Custodio  JUNE 2014

CFC Canada Leaders meets CSP Beneficiaries and their parents.

During the Pastoral visit of CFC Leaders from Canada last May 2014, they were able to meet the scholars, the Parents and the local organizers lead by Rev. Fr.

Running the Race: CFC ANCOP Cup Spring Relay Run 2014

Jon Javier, Vancouver

Earmarked as one of two major ANCOP Vancouver events, the revamped CFC ANCOP Cup Spring Relay Run 2014 rallied over five hundred individuals from Couples for Christ and its Family Ministries to the Holy Cross Regional High School Track in Surrey, BC during the final weekend of April. Scoring its third year, the Spring Relay Run highlighted the importance of helping those in need particularly in the housing sector where affordable shelter continues to be a dilemma. The fund-raising event was aimed at bankrolling 12 modest houses in the Philippines. After taking a one year hiatus, this year's relay run came with salient modifications and improvements over race mechanics in order to promote cooperation, harmony, fairness and collaboration with the Singles for Christ, Youth for Christ, Kids for Christ and the Handmaids of the Lord. The revitalized affair showed promising feedback as participants and spectators alike had a better appreciation of the sport. Among the refinements introduced was the concept of the Cup where the winning chapter would have their name etched on the plate. The same Cup would then be awarded to next year's winner and so on, and the victors would be honoured for years to come.


Four (4) Cum Laude and Seven (7) Valedictorians Lead 2014 Ancop Graduates


Thursday, May 15, 2014

The high drop-out rate among students from all educational levels is a growing concern with dire and domino like consequences, affecting a large segment of the country, if left unmitigated. The affected students cited lack of funds for educational expenses was the main and prevalent reason for dropping out of school.

Within this framework, CFC Ancop took the challenge and pursued Child Sponsorship Program (CSP) for poor and qualified students. In 2010 the operation of similar programs by Ancop Canada, Ancop Australia and HOLD Adopt a Scholar were integrated in one education program for all Ancop donor partners and implementing sectors provinces, under the umbrella of CFC Ancop. Subsequently, Ancop USA supported by providing funds for 500 students for one (1) year and since then new donor areas grew the numbers of Ancop scholars. Ancop Global Walkers raised funds every year since 2010. Partnerships with corporations, the academe, NGO’s and civic organizations were forged and by April 2014 about 6,412 poor students were (...CONTINUE READING)

Ghana Sponsorships now available.

ANCOP International Canada is excited to anncounce the availability of sponsorships of children from Ghana.





In the photo, Gabby Consulta of ANCOP Canada, Inc. speaks before members of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce-Toronto (PCCT), inviting them to join the ANCOP Walk 2013 in Toronto.
The fundraiser will be held in major cities across Canada.
In Toronto, the ANCOP Walk will be held on Sunday, August 25, 2013. Meeting place will be at the Nathan Phillips Square, 100 Street West in downtown T.O. around 12 noon. The 5-kilometer walk starts promptly at 1 P.M.
Organizations joining the fundraiser will have the option to choose to have their members' registration fees go toward the construction of houses for marginalized families from among the villages being built and developed by ANCOP Canada in the Philippines and other Third World countries, or go towards a scholarship fund for poor, but deserving students.
The PCCT Board of Directors, through PCCT President Oswald Tugadi, gave word to Temi Pangilinan, President of ANCOP Canada, that members of the board are joining the fundraising effort. The PCCT leadership continues to campaign among its members to join the charitable event.
After Gabby Consulta's talk at a PCCT event, a Toronto-based travel agency and corporate member of the PCCT signified its interest to be a sponsor of ANCOP Walk 2013. 
Another corporate member of the PCCT pledged to donate $500 and will likewise join the walk.
Hard at work during the PCCT event for more participation among the members of the premier business organization in Toronto were PCCT Administrative Officer Isa Tugadi and Front Page Philippines Program Host Gie Plazo Alvarez.
While this will be the first time that the PCCT is joining ANCOP Walk, some will recall that shortly after ANCOP Canada, Inc. was given its license to operate as a charitable organization, it was the PCCT which pledged the funds for the construction of its first community. Today, 20 poor families are the beneficiaries of the PCCT-funded village, located in the Multinational Village complex in Paranaque City.
As of this writing, the PCCT Board has not met yet to decide whether fees and other monies generated by ANCOP Canada Inc. from PCCT's participation in the forthcoming ANCOP Walk should go to another housing village or go towards the scholarship fund of ANCOP for poor and deserving students.
Another organization joining the ANCOP Walk, Sunday, August 25, is the Philippine Canadian Charitable Foundation (PCCF) -- founded by Tobias Jun Enverga, Jr., now a Senator in Canada. 
According to Mr. Pangilinan, the PCCF has, todate, deposited with ANCOP Canada $18,500 starting from last year to fund the construction of houses. The PCCF pledged for the construction of 20 houses at the 120-unit site that ANCOP is developing in Paranaque City. 
Mr. Pangilinan said the amount represents so far funds for six houses at the current cost of $3,000 per unit.

Ambassador Gatan Pledges Support for ANCOP

ANCOP Canada President Bro. Temi Pangilinan made a courtesy visit to H. E. Philippine Ambassador to Canada Leslie B. Gatan last May 18 at his official residence in Ottawa. Together with Bro. Philip Tang, CFC Chapter Head - Ottawa and Bro. Rico and Sis. Gina Tingin, CFC Provincial Leaders - Ottawa, they were warmly received by the Ambassador.
The supposed 30-minute appointment turned into almost 2 hours of lively exchange. Bro. Temi presented ANCOP and the many projects and initiatives that we are doing for the poorest of the poor. Ambassador Gatan was very impressed with our work-for-the-poor model in ANCOP as shown by his interest; he not only listened and asked question during the open exchange of ideas, he also expressed interest to personally participate as a donor. 

When briefed about our CSP (Child Sponsorship Program) for seminarians, he told us about his youth when, as a young seminarian, he was likewise sponsored by a generous individual. Unfortunately, the sponsorship ended abruptly hence, he was not able to pursue his dream of becoming a priest. It was then that he decided he preferred to sponsor one of the seminarians in our CSP program to ensure that at least one of them will not experience the same fate. This sponsorship is on top of his desire to donate for a shelter in one of our ongoing community projects.


Although he mentioned that as a government official representing our country here in Canada, he is not allowed to endorse a charity organization, he however committed to help and support ANCOP in his personal capacity.
