Officers and Members of Gawad Metronian Educational Foundation, Inc. [GMEFI] and
the Soroptimist International San Jose del Monte-1 [SI of SJDM-1] met for the third time, at the latter’s turf last July 13. The meeting was held in a very cozy place located at the Robes’ compound in Bulacan. The Soroptomist group led by its founder Natividad Villano and Corazon Flores, its President with some of their other members sat down with GMEFI group led by Dr. Evelyne Dominguez, its President.
Sole agenda was the possible partnership between the two groups aimed at raising
funds to benefit their respective Foundation and beneficiaries. It centered on the film benefit showing of a historical documentary on Apolinario Mabini to help raise historical awareness, promote nationalism, and spark patriotism in the hearts of schoolchildren of San Jose del Monte, the target audience. Nowadays, the Filipino youth are quite unaware of the sacrifices of our heroes.
A memorandum of agreement was discussed, contents of which will be subject to further study by both groups before finalization. Members of the Executive Committee that will handle the project has been formed.
The meeting ended at around 2.30 pm.
