Filipino Institute’s founder to mark 37th birthday by giving 500 meal packs to displaced OFWs


To mark his 37th birthday on Sunday, June 14, Filipino Institute (FI) founder and president Mr. Gabriel John Rimando is giving around 500 meal packs to displaced overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who have recently registered at the ‘Tulong ng Filipino Institute’ online portal. 

Mr. Rimando said that in the first phase of the ‘Tulong ng Filipino Institute’, which will be launched on his birth date, they will distribute 500 hot meals around Dubai. 

“The initiative was conceptualized not only to celebrate my birthday but also to celebrate my wife’s birthday, Camille Rimando, which happened just last week,” he said, adding that this is also a ‘great time’ to mark their fifth wedding anniversary which falls on June 23.

According to him, he plans to extend help to as much as Filipinos in need by delivering food packs at their doorsteps in the coming weeks for the next phases.

FI is also among the companies that have suffered due to the economical effect of Covid-19 in face-to-face schooling. Come e-learning system and lifting of movement restrictions, the company is gradually surviving amid some challenges.

Rimando has introduced FI in the UAE and in some parts of the Middle East in an effort to provide uniquely designed professional programmes and to make a difference in the growing number of Filipinos abroad. 

He arrived in the country in 2007. He established the training facility on November 19, 2015 after feeling the need to help empower Filipinos by providing access to high quality yet affordable education.
