Share an alumni success story.
Armenio Gallardo graduated from its basic education program in 2001. His family in the southern province of the Philippines is so poor that they cannot afford to send him to school. Armenio had no choice but to find a work and help support the family. In Manila, he found a job as house helper to a college professor who happened to teach in the college department of Miriam College. He enrolled Armenio in the ungraded elementary of M.A.E. and did not stop supporting Armenio until college. Today, he is a professional Filipino language subject teacher and a volunteer teacher also in M.A.E.
