Two new members were introduced and formally inducted into the League during this first out-of-town assembly of LCF. Lao Foundation, Inc. (LFI), represented by its executive director Mr. Paul Alfaro, is a Quezon City-based organization which contributes in empowering its beneficiaries through three major programs and services – education, values formation, and community outreach. Based in Cebu, Primary Structures Educational Foundation, Inc. (PSEFI) provides ‘opportunities to marginalized out-of-school youths and adults, unemployed and displaced workers’ through educational scholarships and technical-vocational trainings, as explained by Chief Operating Officer Ms. Paulette Liu. LCF now has a total of 85 members with LFI and PSEFI on board.

In its constant effort to provide capacity-building opportunities for its members, the League also offered a learning session featuring two guest speakers – Ms. Marissa Camacho, a member of the LCF Advisory Council and Vice President for Partnerships Development of the Ramon Magsaysay Awards Foundation, and Ms. Fritz Beldad, Cash Solutions Manager of the Unionbank of the Philippines. Ms. Camacho introduced the project on ‘Strengthening the Capacity of Philippine Civil Society Organizations’ while Ms. Beldad presented Unionbank’s ‘U-Share’ campaign.
