TCF Volunteer Monitor Passes Mechanical Board Exam

Engr. Reinheart R. Malate

Reinheart R. Malate, 22, passed the recent Board Exam for Mechanical Engineers. Reinheart is now a licensed Mechanical Engineer!


Reinheart volunteered for a year, to the Textile Clothing Footwear Ormoc project. As a volunteer, he received a food and transportation allowance provided by Dr. Jaap Poll, CEO of Ottoman Energy Limited who granted us with 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 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.

Reinheart was one of those kids who benefitted from Dr. Poll's grant. Now, Reinheart is reminded how his allowance helped him and his family for a year. He is very grateful to Dr. Poll.
