Home Apostolates Mission BYOP: Breaking the Yoke of Poverty
About BYOP

Breaking the Yoke of Poverty

“Is it not this fast that I choose to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke.” Isaiah58:6

 

As its name indicates, BYOP or Breaking the Yoke of Poverty Ministry’s main objective is to assist families out of poverty towards dignity and productivity as children of God. As experience has thought us that education is one of the best ways to help people out of poverty, BYOP has focused on the Scholarship of Hope program during these last few years (2012-2015). BYOP believes that participants and donors play an essential role in bringing a better future to the poor families and that great things are possible with the support of caring and generous hearts.


The main recipient of the BYOP Scholarship of Hope program are the needy children of the Immaculate Queen of Heaven Missionaries in Cebu.


Funding for the Scholarship of Hope programs come from four sources:

1) Ancop Walk

2) BYOP fundraising

3) BLD Toronto

4) Individual Toronto donors.

 

Part of the BYOP mandate to help the poor and the homeless is to respond to requests for financial assistance for areas affected by natural calamities. In the recent devastating typhoon Haiyan, BYOP was able to raise $10,500 for disaster relief to the different areas plagued by the typhoon. BYOP is committed to this mission of helping out whenever the need arises.

 

BYOP also spearheads annually a charity drive asking the community to donate school supplies, new and used toys and clothes for the IMHQM benificiaries and the response of the community to these charity drives have been overwhelming.

 

BYOP Ministry Coordinator: Felix & Linda Fullante

Members: Nito & Joni Cruz, Al & Sol Crisostomo

ANCOP WALK 2015 –AUGUST 15


Ancop Walk is an annual fundraising event that helps the poor in the Philippines and other third world
countries by providing shelter, housing and child education programs for the poor living slums and abject poverty. In partnership with ANCOP International Canada Inc., a Christian, registered non-profit charity, founded by the Couples of Christ, Bukas Loob sa Diyos, (Open in Spirit to God) Toronto through the BYOP ministry is again joining this 2015 fundraiser as an expression of our faith in God by helping the poor. As in the past three years, BYOP’s focus is to provide good education to the needy children of Immaculate Mary Queen of Heaven Mission in Cebu. Let us be reminded of the word of Jesus in Matthew25:45, “Whenever you refused to help one of these least important ones, you refused to help me.”


This year’s “Walk to transform communities and change lives” will be on Saturday, August 15.


Participants will gather at David Pecaut Square in Toronto. Please come walk with us to give needy children an education and build homes for the poor. Let us once again help bring a better future to these poor families.


You may register online by going to www.ancopwalk.ca. Please make sure to specify that you belong to “BLD Group”. If for any reason you cannot join the WALK, you can help by soliciting funds from friends and relatives. Please obtain solicitation forms from the BYOP ministry headed by Felix & Linda Fullante.

 


ANCOP WALK 2014

 

The ANCOP WALK held last August 24, 2014 last year was a huge success. BLD BYOP is grateful to everyone who participated, the registrants, donors and volunteers. Because of the funds generated by BLD BYOP in this walk, the educational funding of the current 34 high school scholars and 9 college students is already completed. Indeed, we all have helped uplift the lives of our poor kababayan and have become an invaluable part of the team working to provide education for the poor children in the Philippines.

SCHOLARSHIP OF HOPE – IMMACULATE MARY QUEEN OF HEAVEN MISSIONARIES

It was our BLD Community Spiritual Director, Archbishop Angel Lagdameo who introduced BLD Toronto BYOP to IMQHM and endorsed its cause for support during his 2011 visit to Toronto.


Since then, IMQHM has been the major beneficiary of the BLD Toronto BYOP Scholarship of Hope program. IMQHM aims to fight prostitution through their program called the IMQHM rehabilitation and Livelihood Training Center for Prostituted women and children called “The Home of Love.”


Mission:

To rescue women and children victims of prostitution

To shelter and rehabilitate them in our Home of Love

To give them an opportunity to live a decent life, where Christ is the center of their lives


Photos from Scholarship of Hope

In January 2014, BYOP Ministry Coordinators Felix & Linda Fullante together with Mert & Nimfa Geronimo and Bernie & Belen Consul visited IMQHM. Seeing the actual situation of the IMQHM beneficiaries and talking to them, hearing their own stories truly touched the hearts of the visitors. The dedication and commitment of the IMQHM sisters and volunteers inspired them and strengthened even more their desire to help the IMQHM children through the BYOP Scholarship of Hope program.

BYOP Scholarship of Hope
Written by BYOP & Treasury Ministry   

Brothers and Sisters, as you may recall, sometime in the Summer and Fall last year, the Treasury Ministry spearheaded a charity drive asking the Community to donate school supplies, new and used toys and clothes, etc. The response of the Community was overwhelming such that BLD was able to send 12 balikbayan boxes of goodies to the Sisters of the Mary Queen of Heaven Mission (MQHM) in Cebu, Philippines.
 
For your information, also before last Christmas 2011, BLD Toronto, through our Scholarship of Hope (SOH) Program spearheaded by the BYOP Ministry and in partnership with the sisters of MQHM, was also able to provide a one-year educational sponsorship to 25 poor children of Barangay Tuburan also in Cebu. Another 25 needy children from the same Barangay were sponsored for one year by individual members and families of BLD Toronto. Our BLD SOH  Program, therefore, was able to provide educational sponsorship to a total of 50 very poor children who would otherwise be without education and be victims of rampant prostitution.
 
Attached please find a Thank You/Acknowledgement Letter from Sister Corazon Salazar, the Mother Superior of MQHM. Please continue to support BLD's SOH Program. Your generous response  can change the lives of many poor children in the Philippines.
 
And for those of you who wants to know more about the mission work of  the sisters of MQHM, please CLICK and see the following short video clip:

ANCOP/BYOP WALK
Written by Administrator   

Let's all praise and thank the Lord for a successful 2011 ANCOP/BYOP WALK held last Sunday, August 28th. The honor and glory in this victorious fundraiser belongs to our  Lord alone who made it happen for the benefit of the poor and the homeless.

Thank you all for your prayers and participation in this WALK. We are, most especially, grateful to the participants and generous donors. Thank you for being part of the cause, for believing in it and sharing your blessings.

Initial report indicates that BLD had collected about $13,000....enough funds to support at least 34 young children in their  education for one year.

Thank you to the 32 BLD Walkers including 7 from BLD St. Catharines.

We hope to see more BLD Walkers next year and please pray for the continued success of our work with the poor.

WE have MADE A DIFFERENCE
Written by Bernie & Belen Consul   

Brothers and Sisters In Christ,

In last Sunday's (Feb 6) First Reading, Isaiah 58.6-10 it is written:

"Thus says the Lord: Is this not the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice;......to let the oppressed go free,.......and to break every yoke?

Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover them............?

.........If you remove the yoke from among you,........if you offer your food to the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted, then your light shall rise in the darkness and your gloom be like the noonday".


It is in the spirit  of and inspiration from the above scripture reading that we are happy to report to you the turn-over of the first 18 GK homes to the beneficiaries of our Mahayag Project located in Davao City. Attached for you information, is a signed note from all the 18 recipients expressing their heartfelt gratitude for giving their families their own home to dwell. Twelve more houses will be completed in the very near future to complete the 30 homes planned for this GK Village. Please click here to see view the letter of gratitude from the recipients.

On behalf of the 18 beneficiaries and in general, our poor kababayans, thank you for your continuing support and generosity.  

God Bless,

Ang mga kabahayan ay naipatayo sa tulong ng pondong kinalap ng Gawad Kalinga Foundation mula sa mga distrito ng BLD sa Estados Unidos (New York-New Jersey-Detroit) at sa Canada (Toronto).  Ang mga “beneficiaries” ay nag-alay ng mga araw ng trabaho at pagdalo sa mga values formation seminar para mapasama sa mga nagawaran ng pabahay.  

Sinabi ni BLD Mission Steward Dr. Dion (Amie) Morales  na ang pag-aayos ng lugar at pagtatayo ng mga bahay ay isinagawa sa tulong ng mga kaalalay ng BLD-GK sa programa.  Kasama rito ang Lucena Bankers,  mga Rotary Clubs, Philippine Air Force, Boysen Paints at mga empleyado ng City Hall.

Ibinalita ng mga pinuno ng BLD GK Ministry - Bro. Romy (Sis. Yvonne) Asegurado, Bro. Raul (Sis. Mitzie) Villanueva, Drs. Junjun at Chuchay Diamante, Bros. Ernie (Sis. Minda) Villareal at Bro.

Winner of the GK Walk 2009 top prize

(Article Source:  www.ancopcanada.net/communities)

The GK Walk 2009 event held last August and September 2009 gave ANCOP International Canada a donation and pledge result equivalent to over 100 units of Ancop houses to be built in the proposed villages of the groups who participated in the event. There were over 2,000 solicitors who participated in the event coming from Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Victoria, Lethbridge, Winnipeg, Calgary, Fort McMurray, Montreal and Edmonton.


The draw of the prizes was done at the Casa Manila last December  and the winner of the first prize, a return ticket to the Philippines was the BLD Toronto group who in turn made a draw to award the winnings to a solicitor of their group. The BLD draw's winner is Mrs. Patria 'Pat' Lazaro.


The winner of the coveted First Prize is also one of the topnotchers in the solicitation of pledges during the recently concluded GK Walk 2009. Pat, together with husband Eric is a member of the Bukas Loob sa Diyos Toronto (BLD), a covenanted community composed of over 500 married couples in Greater Toronto, Ontario. In the GK Walk 2009, the BLD group raised enough pledges and donations, coming from various parts of the world including the USA, to a level of almost 20 housing units. This would be the group's third village. Pat is shown here in the picture receiving her award from Temi Pangilinan, President of ANCOP Canada, sponsor of the GK Walk annual event. Looking in are Pat's spouse Eric, who himself is one of the top 5 solicitors of the event and two of their lovely grandchildren.


The BLD leaders who spearheaded the group's efforts during the event are Bernie and Belen Consul, who are also among the leading solicitors for this event.

The Story of Antero Ely
Written by Gawad Kalinga Ministry   

Brothers and Sisters,

This material and link below was provided to us by ANCOP International (Canada) Inc, BLD's main partner in our work related to Gawad Kalinga here in Toronto. Please take the time to watch the video.

Please remember that BLDs participation in Gawad Kalinga has directly impacted the lives of many poor kababayan in the Philippines.

For many of the poor in the Philippines going hungry is a daily fact of life. It is common for them to just have a meal of rice and salt, or even nothing at all. This was a daily reality for Antero Ely and his family until GK changed their lives.

Click here to see how GK has helped Antero and his family.



From living in a dilapidated pig pen, Antero and his family are now residents of   GK Nuestra Senora dela Soledad , one of 85 Canadian GK villages. Not only were they given shelter but through the GK Bayan Anihan (National Harvest) program, the entire village now grows a variety of vegetables and fruits to supplement the daily needs.

Through Gawad Kalinga's multisectoral approach, local assistance was also provided by other partners. This includes Globe Telecom who provided capital for the vegetable farm, the Department of Agrarian Reform who provided seedlings and supplies, and Central Luzon State University for the farming know how, technology, and follow up.  

The Bayan Anihan food sufficiency program, combined with the shelter of GK homes and ANCOP-GK child education sponsorship shows that GK is not only about houses but providing the poor the means to uplift themselves.


BLD have been a part of this in a very special way. We are grateful to GK Walk participants and generous donors who have given to build GK homes. In the coming months, we will also be embarking on the Child Sponsorship Program.

Thank you for being part of the cause, for believing in the GK-spirit and for sharing your blessings.


We hope that you will continue to support the efforts of the BLD GK Ministry and please pray for the continued success of our work with the poor.

Mabuhay Po Kayo!
May you be blessed always!

Coordinators, Toronto, GK Ministry

From the GK Ministry
Written by Bernie and Belen Consul, GK Ministry Coordinators   

Thank you all for your on-going commitment to the Gawad Kalinga. Each poor and homeless family we save and each milestone we reach, is only possible with your generosity and commitment.

The final figure is in from the recently held GK Walk: BLD was able to raise $28,000 which is equivalent to 11 homes.  

We want to especially thank the following GK registrants and advocates. They solicited pledges and a number of them joined the GKWalk. Some of them even walked as an ME Class, a good example of what we should all be doing next year. These GK Heroes have been the key elements to our many successes.  We salute you.

Thank You For Supporting the 2009 GK Walk!
Written by Bernie and Belen Consul   

Brothers and Sisters,

Let's all praise and thank the Lord for a very successful GK Walk last weekend. The honor and glory in this victorious GK Walk belongs to our good Lord alone who made it happen for the benefit of the poor and the homeless.

Thank you all for your prayers and participation at the GK Walk. We are, most especially, grateful to the participants and generous donors. Thank you for being part of the cause, for believing in it and sharing your blessings.

Initial report indicates that the BLD Group had exceeded our donation target by 45%. Total pledges collected as of last Sunday amounts to $21,750 which is about $5,000 more than what we have raised last year. There are more pledges coming in the mail  and from the on-line solicitation and we anticipate that we will reach the amount of $27,500 when all the donations have been recorded and accounted for. This is about 80% above our target of $15,000.

Brothers and Sisters, with the funds that we anticipate to raise from this GK Walk, i.e. $27,500, we will be able to build 11 GK homes for our homeless kababayans.

We are also happy to report that there were 40 BLD members and BLD supporters who actually participated in the Walk which is double the number compared to last year. Thank you Walkers for representing the BLD Community in this years GK Walk.  

We hope to see you all at the next GK Walk and please pray for the continued success of our work with the poor.

Mabuhay Po Kayo!

Thank you and may God continuously bless you and your families always.

US group embraces GK vision
Written by Patricia Esteves   

Gawad Kalinga’s commitment and vision to uplift the lives of the poor continues to transcend faith, creed, background and wealth, as it inspires an outpouring of support from different Catholic organizations and Filipinos abroad.

One of them is the Bukas Loob sa Diyos (BLD), a Catholic organization with members all over the world, that has made GK a part of its ministry and poverty alleviation program. “Because helping the poor knows no boundaries — in creed, faith, background or wealth, the BLD found a common goal and has embraced the vision of GK in giving dignity and hope to the poor and homeless,” said Richard de la Fuente, BLD executive in the Newark-New Jersey district.
