Kanlungan Filipino Consortium events for 2016

Lalaine Magnaye, Project Officer at the Kanlungan Filipino Consortium would like to promote their events for 2016.

I work for a charity called, Kanlungan Filipino Consortium, which consists of four community organisations including Campaign for Human Rights in the Philippines, Filipino Domestic Workers Association, Bahay Kubo Housing Association and Philippine Theatre UK. We help Filipino migrants have a better life in the UK. More recently, we are moving towards helping second generation and other young Filipinos embrace and participate in the community. We have a number of events that members of Phil-UK might be interested in, please do check them out.

Our first event is a free leadership programme which aims to develop participation in the Filipino community by bringing people together and empowering people to address issues that affect us – more info at http://bit.ly/1NjWRHk.

Our second event is a free workshop series from August to December that aims to celebrate Filipino culture and heritage – more info at http://bit.ly/1OdJYPz. The workshops will include a walking tour of London with Philippine Generations, a cooking class with Mae of Pepe’s Kitchen, a language class with the teacher of Philippine Generation’s current run of language classes, an arts class exploring indigenous fabrics and traditional tattoos, and music and drama classes run by 2 young professionals.

Finally, Campaign for Human Rights in the Philippines are holding a fundraising event for the benefit of Lumad children in the Philippines. All proceeds will go towards building 2 new school building and school supplies – more info at http://www.chrp.org.uk/.

Survey to understand the banking needs of Filipinos in the UK

Chance to win a free round trip ticket to Manila!

On behalf of a client, Elixirr are running a survey to understand the banking needs of Filipinos in the UK. Please see link here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/bankingneeds.

This will help us to understand what products and services would best help people to manage their money better, send money home and save more.

There will be questions about the person, their current banking activities and what they would like from their bank. Completion of this questionnaire should take no longer than 15 minutes. All responses are anonymous and will be confidential. We will not share details of responses with any 3rd parties. Upon filling in the survey, there will be a chance to win a round trip ticket to Manila!

Survey open until Saturday 18 June. For any questions, please email: Hannah.Rothery@Elixirr.com
