Industry and Donors talk about Anihan

The Palms Country Club held a Gala Night for its 2nd Charity Drive, "Lucky 8: Help & Educate", on 7 August 2010.

It was truly heartwarming to hear testimonies from the sides of the industry and of donors with regard to the quality training imparted by Anihan and to its graduates' hard work.

Atty. Aniano Bagabaldo, Executive Vice President and CEO of the Philippine Exporters Confederation, Inc., has been sponsoring scholars in Anihan for more than ten years now. He was a guest speaker at The Palms' Gala Night and in his speech he expressed his satisfaction over the benefits of helping Anihan:
...I recall it started sometime in 1997 when my close comadre, the late Mrs. Mameng Manabat, a staunch supporter of Anihan, personally called me and requested if I could donate some funds to the school. I did not have any idea what Anihan Technical School was all about. We gave our donation because I could not say no to my comadre. I received a thank you letter from the school and a letter of gratitude from the student we sponsored.

...It is inspiring to learn that graduates of Anihan are in demand and have a high employability in establishments like The Palms Country Club, Tagaytay Highlands, Red Ribbon, Sugar House, Hotel Vivere and many others... Naniniwala ako na hindi ninyo kukunin sila kung wala silang sapat na kakayahan or skills (I believe that you would not hire them if they did not have sufficient skills)...

Because of the very good track record of Anihan in educating young women and providing them with skills, good work attitude and moral values, plus Anihan's involvement in community activities, my family continues to support Anihan, and I also encourage other prospective donors.
Afterwards, Atty. Gonzales of the Filinvest Corporate City Foundation, explained why they chose Anihan as beneficiary even when The Palms already supports the school by hiring among its graduates:
This year, as we celebrate our 8th year anniversary, we launched a new charity drive called Lucky 8: Help & Educate. This is a scholarship program focused on helping the underprivileged but deserving women complete a degree at the Anihan Technical School.

...We chose to send our scholars to Anihan Technical School because it provides the kind of education that does not only focus on the skills and intellgience of its students but more importantly on their morals and spirituality. It is a holistic approach that helps guarantee a brighter future for the individual and her family.

...I am very happy to announce that Filinvest Corporate City Foundation will match the funds raised by The Palms scholarship program.
The industry, donors, patrons, and the many other people who support and help Anihan in continuing to achieve its vision of being a leading technical-vocational school can expect a more intense commitment from the school's staff and students!
