In a significant stride towards community development, Virlanie Foundation together with Ayala Foundation has recently expanded its outreach by opening a community partnership in Pandi, Bulacan on November 15, 2023.
The opening of the community partnership aligns with the Virlanie Foundation’s overarching vision of empowering communities and creating sustainable change. It also recognizes that community involvement is crucial for the success of any development initiative, and their approach involves active collaboration with local residents to identify needs, strengths, and opportunities for growth.
A skills training session was conducted as the highlight of the event which focused on the production of dishwashing liquids. This practical and valuable skill equips community members with the means to generate income, fostering economic independence and self-sufficiency.
According to HOA president Prof. Roque Dela Cruz, The Virlanie Foundation provides a huge help, since some members of the community cannot be served. Moreover, Virlanie Foundation gave hope to those who really have nothing, giving livelihood programs to the families here. Thank you very much for giving us and the people here the aspiration that every family will also prosper.
In a gesture of support and encouragement, the program culminated in the distribution of gift bags and rice sacks among the beneficiaries.
The event marks a significant milestone for Virlanie Foundation in its pursuit of creating positive and lasting change. To learn more about Virlanie’s Community Program, visit https://virlanie.org/community/.
