Our founder and chairman

After graduating from college experienced one of the biggest unforeseeable challenge in his life, hunger. From that point, he was helped by his family, their local foodbank, the King County and WA State DSHS (DSWD in PH). After being able to lift himself out of poverty and hunger he experienced himself, Apollo wanted to pay it forward.

Inspired by this very hardship that he went through, he started The Be Good Project Foundation a.k.a. BGP along with his friends back in 2012. 

Today with the help of their selfless volunteers, BGP not only provides limited soup kitchen/feeding programs and youth leadership workshops but they are also a staunch children’s education advocates as Apollo believes that education combined with and the use of technology are the two keys to ending children’s hunger and poverty.
