AA for Singles for Christ
Hello! My name is Qwayne. I am the 2016 SFC ANCOP Ambassador Australia.
I was born in the Philippines and moved to Australia as a one year old, with my parents hoping for my brother and I to receive a good education. Their sacrifices have helped me understand the value of education. Without the opportunity to be educated my life would be very different.
I fly back to the Philippines often to visit family. Whenever I visit, I struggle most when I witness the realities of living in a third world country.
Good education, for many children, is simply a dream - too far to reach.
The Year of Mercy ,declared by Pope Francis, calls us to something deeper – to conversion in our own lives so that we can bring the face of God’s mercy to the world. How good it is for us for our generation to be called to be more merciful and generous!
CFC ANCOP (Answering the Crying of the Poor) is an organisation I wholeheartedly believe in. Their work paves the way for disadvantaged children to receive an education and as such opportunities for a better life for themselves and their family.
I am confident that education creates hope – a hope that changes the world. Education is a gift that is so vital in a child's development, but on a grander scale, so necessary in creating a world that is good, true and beautiful.

I am fundraising money to support the wonderful work that CFC ANCOP (Answering the Cry of the Poor) Ltd does.
ANCOP helps less fortunate kids have access to education which can open up opportunities for these children and their families.
I grew up in the Philippines and I know that this could mean the world to a lot of people. This is a pathway that could give them a life that they would not have even dared to dream of.
I am currently studying to become a Teacher myself, so this cause is really close to my heart. I have also been part of teaching programs when I was still living in the Philippines and the hope and light in these children's eyes that education has brought for their future is priceless.
'Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.' Who knows - together, we might send the next Nelson Mandela to school, or maybe the next Marie Curie!
Helping out is easy! You can sponsor a child in elementary (primary), high school (secondary) or tertiary studies (either vocation, similar to TAFE, or university). You can also give whatever amount you can and it can be pooled together with other donations to sponsor a child. There's no such thing as a big or small donation, we only recognise and see big hearts, here. 🙂
