La Proteccion de la Infancia as Part of the 29th Annual Manila Studies Conference

Mr. Martin Gaerlan discusses the discovery of the Junta General and Junta Directiva, Gota de Leche’s archives of meetings

In a live video posted last September 19 by the Manila Studies Association Facebook page, host EA Sembrano introduced Mr. Martin Gaerlan, currently a part-time faculty member of the De La Salle-College of St. Benilde and author of “Sampaloc’s Sacred Ground”.

The latter presented his paper called Gota de Leche (A Drop of Philanthropic History 1906-1915) in which he discusses Gota’s history via the webinar. To those who missed the live video, you may fast-forward to his interesting talk between 1:24:30 to 1:55:00 to learn about how generous and forward-thinking donors sustained La Proteccion de la Infancia’s programs.
