Our Launch Party on July 31st was a huge success! We are pleased to say that we could not have imagined a better launch for our organization! All of the planning and preparation for our big night was absolutely worth it. We are excited to welcome aboard new Visionaries who can see the good work we want to do and who also want to make an impact in the Philippines!

Monette Gonzalez-Alamares, Bim Bim Adolfo, Susan Panganiban, Julianne Felix, and our Directors Gemma Mechure and Tessie Dantes-Era for the delicious catering of food.
