Cebu City Frontline Services Project: Aug. 2007 – 2009
We are currently working with Cebu City Mayor, Tomas Osmeña, who started a project called Cebu City Frontline Clusters. Under the direction of Dr. Alice Utlang, who is also FAMFI’s OIC, CCFC is composed of different city government services. They travel to the remote and mountainous areas of Cebu to provide free services such as medical, dental, legal – even garbage service. Every month (since August 2007) FAMFI has helped support this project by supplying medicine and vitamins. Our contribution has already helped hundreds of needy people
Our first frontline outreach activity was done last Aug. 3, 2007 from 9 a.m. to 3p.m. at the barangay Pardo gymnasium in Cebu City. Several residents in the area availed of free services like veterinary, laboratory testings and hairdressing.

Organized FAMFI Youth and Young Adult Club here in Napa County and Contra Costa County - Hecules
FAMFI Youth and Young Adult Club program is about making positive change happen for our communities, and for the environment across the globe. We want to connect to youth of all ages who share a desire to create a better world through service projects like youth-led campaigns.
FAMFI members will be making a difference across the globe by informing everyone that "every individual matters, every individual has a role to play and every individual makes a difference" (Dr. Jane Goodall) by their actions of community service.
We want to prove that young people, when informed and empowered, can indeed change the world. Our program—dedicated to inspiring tomorrow’s leaders of today—not only motivates young people to learn about pertinent issues facing our local and global communities, but also helps them actually design, lead and implement their own projects as a means of solving them.
