Helping ICTSI Foundation T.E.A.C.H.

“Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth.” ~Helen Caldicott~

Colayco Foundation for Education, (CFE) supported International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) Foundation’s endeavor to (T.E.A.C.H) Teacher Empowerment and Capability-Honing Program.

Five (5) successful seminar runs of PISOBILITIES were given to teachers of Rosauro Almario Elementary School (R.A.E.S.) and Tondo High School last April 12, while last April 18, Day Care Teachers from Manila Department of Social Welfare District Office and the last sessions were given last June 1, 2012 for the teachers of Rajah Soliman Science and Technology High School and Dr. Juan G. Nolasco High School.

According to the teachers, all the topics were beneficial. They appreciated the value of planning their finances, saving what they can and making their money grow the best possible way they. Through this seminar sponsored by ICTSI Foundation, the Public School Teachers were inspired to take control of their personal finances; were enlightened to avoid getting into debts or pawning thier ATMs; were provided with alternatives on what to do with their hard‐earned money other than spending and were empowered to create a worry-free financial environment for themselves.

ICTSI Foundation is committed to helping people who are influential in the lives of the young people. They believe that other than helping the youth themselves it is equally important to whet and empower the people surrounding these young people. As such, they educate the parents as well as the teachers who benefited from the Financial Literacy Seminar by Colayco Foundation for Education (CFE.)

To ICTSI Foundation, thank you very much for helping us help more! May you continue and never get tired of making a difference to the lives of these people! More power!

Mommies Day in Lipa, Batangas





M” is for the million things she gave me,

O” means only that she’s growing old,

T” is for the tears she shed to save me,

H” is for her heart of purest gold;

E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,

R” means right, and right she’ll always be,

 Put them all together, they spell MOTHER — A word that meant the world to me.

Howard Johnson (c.1915) 

The NESTLE Lipa Factory through its Human Resources’ Learning and Development Department invited Colayco Foundation for Education (CFE) Inc. to be part of their day out with the wives of their employees.

A whole day was created to be easy and fun for mommies in a special Total Health and Wellness Fitness Workshop. Aside from the values of physical wellness, video snapshots from Dad as part of their Father’s Day Special were showed to the mommies to emphasize their husband’s value and importance. Thanks to HR Learning and Development Team Head, Ms. Michelle Tapirre, Colayco Foundation was invited to conduct the segment on Financial Wellness.

Mr. Armand Q. Bengco, Executive Director of Colayco Foundation for Education (CFE) and General Manager of Kapatiran sa Kasaganaan Multi-purpose and Service Cooperative joined the mommies in Nestle Lipa Factory’s Learning Center in Brgy. San Vicente, Banay-Banay, Lipa City last June 9, 2012.

The moms claimed that they learned a lot from Mr. Bengco’s talk. They were reminded of their important role and worth as partners to their husbands in making their family’s finances grow. Other than spending, the mothers said, they will now plan for their expenses, save and invest that can give their family’s fund for each purpose (tuition fee, vacation, emergency, etc.)

Nestle Lipa Factory’s HR Learning and Development Department expressed their gratitude to Colayco Foundation for Education for guiding the moms to be ready and on the go to their journey towards Financial Wellness!

Thus, the Colayco Foundation is happy that over 50 participants were empowered with the Right Stock Investing and with Stock Investing Techniques provided by Colayco Foundation Managing Director Guita Gopalan and Stock Market Specialist MM Silona.
