This fund raising project, where donation boxes will be placed in different business establishments around the city, is spearheaded by Mayor, Gene Eclarino, head of City Social Welfare and Development (CSWDO) and Alay Lakad Foundation chair Gerry Bada are leading the leg work.

This project was made possible through an endorsement letter by Mayor Gordon addressed to the Olongapo Business Club which immediately approved. The collected funds will be used for the scholarship program of Alay Lakad and other various activities.

“We are promoting this good project dahil ito ay for a good cause. Ito ay para sa mga scholars ng Alay Lakad Foundation at magiging permanent ang mga donation boxes na ito sa mga establishments na nakisama sa fund raising,” said Mayor Gordon.

“Sa ngayon, may mga naging scholars ng Alay Lakad na may mga trabaho na. Sila ay naging mga achievers, cum laude, at board passers tulad ng mga nurses na napagtapos ng Alay Lakad. Sa katunayan, ang mga nurses natin ay meron nang nasa USA, Dubai, JLGMH at iba pang mga private offices sa lungsod,” explained Eclarino.

“Ang prioridad ng Alay Lakad Foundation ay ang mga out-of-school youth. Nais ni Mayor Gordon na magkaroon sila ng magandang edukasyon at alisin ang kahirapan bilang hadlang sa magandang kinabukasang nag-aantay sa kanila,” Eclarino added.

The scholars goes through a screening committee before they are finally chosen to ensure that only the deserving are given the chance to continue their education and pursue their dreams. Ninety nine (99%) percent of Alay Lakad Scholars are enrolled in Gordon College.
