GT Foundation, Inc. (GTFI) and Fr. Al’s Children Foundation, Inc. (FACFI) signed a memorandum of agreement on February 10, 2020, at the Metrobank Plaza in Makati City for a six-year scholarship program that will sponsor the education of 100 students currently enrolled at the Sisters of Mary Schools in Silang, Cavite. As a 6-year program, the education of these students starting Grade 7 until they finish Grade 12 will be sponsored by GTFI.

Under its education thrust, GTFI provides access to quality education to financially-challenged yet academically-deserving students by partnering with educational institutions. Under this new partnership, GTFI will finance the secondary education of 50 male and 50 female students. FACFI was founded in 1992 after the demise of Fr. Aloysius Schwartz, founder of Sisters of Mary Congregation in Korea, to assist the charity program of the Sisters of Mary Schools. Today, it provides food, clothing, shelter, medical and dental services, high school and technical education free of charge to over 11,000 students from underprivileged families.
