Project #1: Awarding of Scholarship Grants 2020
Our Purpose: To advance education by providing publicly available scholarship grants to students in need to be used for post-secondary education, within Canada and in other countries.
Our Voice of Carmona Worldwide Society (VOCS) started its scholarship program in 2014 in the Philippines. We have twelve VOCS scholars. Six scholars had graduated. We currently have six scholars remaining. Ever since, they receive Canadian $100 or Philippine Pesos P4,000 every six months, through a cash remittance from VOCS. The remittance fee of about Can$10 is paid by VOCS.
Project #2: Food Drives and Feeding Events 2020
Our Purpose: To relieve poverty by operating a feeding program for individuals or families of low income, within Canada and in other countries.
Currently, we have a food drive and feeding event every six months in a village in the Philippines. We provide an afternoon meal to the poor people and families of about one hundred people. It is being held in a free and covered basketball court in the community. Our Voice of Carmona's (VOCS) Directors and Officers screen and choose our feeding program recipients, (i.e., the village with poor people).
