Last May 30, the Memorandum of Agreement between Gawad Metronian Educational Foundation, Inc. [GMEFI] in support of Childhope Asia’s project MOBILE MUSIC SCHOOL for STREETCHILDREN was signed. GMEFI shall fund the supplies needs of the children. Childhope is GMEFI’s 2017 recipient of the P30K grant annually given by GMEFI under its Community and Educational Program Fund Assistance. It hopes to help sustain Childhope Asia’s programs and services this year among the street kids participants of the Mobile Music School. The year-long project benefits the street children of Metro-Manila.
Dr. Herbert Carpio in behalf of Childhope Asia, and Dr. Evelyne Dominguez in behalf of GMEFI signed the MOA in the presence of Metro-Manila College President Eleanor Agapito, Board Member Erlinda Dal’ag, GMEFI Executive Director Gil Reoma and Ms. Mylene Lagman of Childhope Asia.
Mirana Medina, GMEFI Board member and Head of the Committee on Fund Support for Community-based projects who searched for possible partners found Childhope Asia’s work as laudable, and eventually linked them with GMEFI.
