Apl De Ap Foundation’s continuing efforts in helping Filipino students through We Can Be Anything campaign
August 27, 2013
Recently, Black Eyed Peas’ Fil-Am member Allan Pineda also known as Apl.De.Ap unveiled his latest project for his foundation, Apl de Ap Foundation.
Despite his busy schedule, he devoted his time to lend his hand for those who needs help. Last year, he launched an education campaign called We Can Be Anything, in partnership with Ninoy and Cory Aquino Foundation (NCAF) and Apl De Ap Foundation. As Apl expressed his desire to help improve the education situation in the Philippines. He said that education is the only long-term ticket to a better life.
There’s a lot of NGO’s launched programs besetting the Philippine educational system. In 2011, NCAF appointed him the special ambassador for education of the iamninoy-iamcory Movement.
With his successful career, he wants to give back to his fellow Pinoy all the blessings that he have via this generous advocacy.
In the recently concluded event last August 22, together with selected bloggers, he said: “I am willing to share my talent and time to give to the community. It is important to give back, given the opportunity, I would do the same thing all over again. What goes around, comes around.” Kudos to Apl for his community works, despite the fact that he’s busy doing The Voice of the Philippines as one of the coach of the said reality show.
