is expected to join and participate in the launch of the DA's Metro Mango Marketing Program on June 10, which seeks to attract buyers of mangoes produced in Luzon.
According to DSAPI

The 12th Tee-Up for Down Golf Tournament, a fund raising campaign organized by DSAPI in partnership with Canon, also took place earlier in February at the Tagaytay Midlands Golf & Country Club.
"Being accepted by the society and being treated with dignity help people with Down Syndrome develop their self-worth and enjoy a full and decent life," says DSAPI parent member and volunteer Agnes Lapena.
At the event, DSAPI president Elmer Lapena lauded this year's Happy Walk attendees, noting the value of their continued participation.
On the other hand, DSAPI chairman Tony Pasia called on participants to also look beyond their own concerns and at other people with disabilities, as well as to parents who have already lost their children with Down Syndrome, who have also contributed to the continued success of Happy Walk.
The program has also sponsored the Autism Society of the Philippines' Angels Walk alongside DSAPI's Happy Walk.
