Walking you through ALQ Foundation's Vision for 2020
Recently, we posted a photo of our vision board on our social media pages. We mentioned what we hope to achieve this year in bullet-form as part of that post.
While the visual representation may seem enough, we feel that we owe it to our supporters to get a walk-through of the things we envision and hope to achieve this year.
Since 2015, the Alexis Louise Quiza Foundation has become an instrument of love, hope and healing — not only to the children – but also to families in need.
And this is just the beginning.
In the following years, ALQ Foundation hopes to launch medical and dental missions in the Philippines.
A livelihood program is also in the works for 2020, where families would have a shelter and access to crop and vegetation as means of income; a place for them to thrive and build a better future for their children.
Our goal is to provide sustainable growth to children and families by equipping them to lead healthier and better lives.
We are also hoping that our “Back-to-School” and “Feeding-our-Future” program would expand enough for us to be able to provide full scholarship or shoulder a child’s medical treatment until completion.
For our feeding programs, we remember starting with over 200 children back in 2015; then the numbers doubled (and tripled) collectively in the years that followed. Last year, we have fed 573 children in one feeding program. It was also the first time we held a Christmas feeding event for the residents of the International Children’s Advocate Inc. in Olongapo City which allowed us to serve 40 people.
Our hope for 2020 is to work with more organizations and institutions with the same goal of providing hope, love and care for children.
Under our CHAMP Program, we are hoping to hold more fundraisers and other events to raise more funds in order to achieve these plans.
--- All of these started with a dream which later became our vision. But with countless support and encouragement, our vision can turn into goals and before we knew it, our vision board would be a goal-board packed with more photos of smiling children, stories of lives that were changed and names of people who were divinely sent to us -- to remind us that ALQ Foundation has a worthy cause and that somebody believes in it... in US.
As we close this post with hopeful hearts, we think of the years that have passed us by where we were surprised by how much God has strengthened us physically and emotionally and financially provided for us. We look forward to the years ahead of us starting this year. May the year 2020 be another great year for all of us especially for all the children who are destined to come our way and be part of our lives forever.
