"Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile"
Inspired by his late mother, Paz Gaerlan Galarpe, Alfonso founded Enhance a Village Inc and expanded on his late mother's vision to transform impoverished communities across the globe by creating sustainable programs to improve economic prosperity.
His experience in marketing, real estate, and aviation provides a strong foundation background to serve the organization’s mission. Alfonso is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and has good insight in leadership and the importance of teamwork to provide guidance and direction for the positive experience to all stakeholders of Enhance a Village.
