MEMBERS of Quota International-Pampanga Chapter are now in cloud-nine as they have finally found a willing ally in the person of Governor Lilia Pineda, who, with much enthusiasm, formally took oath as honorary member of the all-women club.
President Myra Manabat formally welcomed Pineda into the fold of dedicated women servants from Pampanga's upper society. The event, which was supposed to be an ordinary courtesy call, turned into an informal induction ceremony as Quota members clamored for Pineda's membership.

"The Quota members believe that Pineda personifies the values and traits advanced by Quota International. Here advocacies for improvement of health services to the poor and the empowerment of women in society are major advocacies of Quota. We believe that Nanay Baby could live-up with the objectives of Quota," Manabat said.
Pineda, who was very happy about her new affiliation, expressed her desire to include Quota International in the many programs of her administration in the coming days. Pineda said that she is planning a host of health activities for women like cancer prevention for women and livelihood projects.
"I have so many plans with Quota, just thinking about them makes me very excited. Quota has a reputation for concrete public service. I have also invited them to lead programs for the provincial government," Pineda said.
Quota members are now lining up program proposals for Pineda and drafting proposals for other possible areas of cooperation. Pineda is optimistic that her membership in Quota would result into better cooperation with the private sector, a mission which she willingly undertakes with other Quota ladies.
