During the press conference last August 7, 2016 at Max Restaurant Araneta Cubao,  Some of the scholars were given the chance to share their experience and how ANCOP change their lives.

ANCOP Global Walk is an ANCOP Couples for Christ's work with the poor initiative.

Two of them were Julie Ann Burio, who is studying at the De La Salle-College of St. Benilde and Anilov Martin, currently enrolled at V. Mapa High school in Manila.

According to Julie Ann,  "Iba po pala ang feeling 'pag scholar ka. Hindi naman po yung hinahabol mo yung pera. 'Yung hinahabol mo po dun yung makakapag-aral ka na, makapagpatuloy ka na..."

She adds, "Para sa akin po, ang education ang foundation mo para sa magiging buhay mo. Ito 'yung tutulong para maging stable ang future mo." 

This is why Julie Ann, like the thousands of scholars who are able to pursue their dreams, are grateful for the gift of ANCOP. It is love in a tangible way. And you too, have that opportunity to give love to an ANCOP scholar by walking for them at the ANCOP Global Walk.
