Glenn Ymas July 2009.JPG

Twenty-four year old Glenn Ymas, a fifth year Mechanical Engineering student of the Eastern Visayas State University (EVSU) couldn’t be happier. Pagtinabangay Foundation informed him that he can continue being the Textile Clothing Footwear Ormoc Volunteer Monitor. This means he can also continue his college education for at least one semester.

Glenn is working his way through college doing odd jobs from gathering news to messengerial work.

Last year, Dr. Jaap Poll, CEO of Ottoman Energy Limited granted us P150,000 to pay for the allowances of eight Volunteer Youth Monitors for the Textile Clothing Footwear (TCF) project. For one whole year Dr. Poll enabled these 8 kids to enroll in college and in high school. That money also made sure that the 25 Community Livelihood Sewing Centers were monitored. The money lasted from June, 2008 to May, 2009. raised US$ 296 for Pagtinabangay Foundation which was remitted to PFI in June 30, 2009. Converted to Philippine Pesos this amounts to Twelve Thousand – 3 months worth of allowance for Glenn to be able to monitor/visit all 25 Community Livelihood Centers of the Textile Clothing Footwear Ormoc project. These 25 CLCs are located in 21 barangays (villages) in Ormoc five of which are hard to reach.

With the 296 US Dollars, donors at ammado are helping Glenn achieve his ambition of finishing his dream of becoming a Mechanical Engineer - - - soon, very soon.

With the US$ 296, donors are helping reach out to the 25 CLCs encouraging the garments makers to continue making garments which are providing them with additional income.

This is just great! 296 US dollars! 126 individuals assisted directly and indirectly! THANK YOU, AMMADO. THANK YOU TO ALL OUR DONORS AT AMMADO.COM
