Pagtama, Jr. of Concepcion Elementary School.The donation coincided with the first flag ceremony of the school year attended by students, teachers and parents.

He is accompanied by I-Toti Mo Na Yan Youth Adviser Hester Cheng and I-Toti Mo Na Yan Execom Member Ross Vaness Ramos. The Concepcion event is the last leg of series of donations of school supplies for the poor inititiated by Rex Bookstore, CDM Foundation, Tau Gamma, Skillion and individual partners.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES PARA SA MAHIHIRAP. SK Kgd Esdee Dulay is giving school supplies for the poor from Rex Bookstore to Social Action Group of Our Lady of the Abandoned where he was an altar boy from grade 5 to high school. Now that he is a prelaw student in UP, he does not serve the altar anymore. He was the Prom King of Marist Graduation ball with his partner Luisa Roque winning the Prom Queen. Esdee was an Interbarangay Basketball Player of San Roque and a Varsity Player of Marist. He wants to be a corporate lawyer someday.Together with his causins SK Kgd Catherine Dulay of Marikina Heights and Sk Kgd Melvin John Dulay of Calumpang, they are the next bunch of Dulay Clan members in Marikina politics.

Prof. Toti Dulay talks with around 100 people in a depressed area in Guzman St., in Concepcion Uno after Willy Fred Amacio, Kabayani Parang Chairman and Dennis Alexander Villoso, Magdalo Group leader of Marikina delivered their talks. A group of Batang Coop officers and members are denouncing the city hall for neglecting them. The CDM Foundation provided them food and  some games, bingo social.
GRASSROOTS ISSUES,PICNIC AND BINGO: Prof. Toti Dulay and businessman Willy Fred Amacio  together with  Chris Llabres, Senyong Gonzales, Ricky Khoo and Boy Nepomuceno is embarking on a series of consultations directly with the people in different barangays in the second district of Marikina to hear directly from the masses their pressing concern through picnic and bingo. In this picnic held in a depressed area in Nangka, the concern is the 90 meters rumored easement from the river. Prof. Dulay and Amacio suggested that people should work directly with CMP because it will helped them purchase the lot, deal with the local government and the owners of the lot. Then, Prof. Dulay met with Councilor Boggs Reyes at Chowking Marikina Heights to clear some issues ; before proceeding to the General Assembly of Holy Family Credit Cooperative in Parang where Prof. Dulay pledged to invest P10,000 and encouraged everyone to invest too by transferring their savings from the bank to cooperative where you earn bigger interest at the same time help the community. Then, the group of Prof. Dulay and Amacio went to their HQ in Parang to plan for next activities before meeting with Ofre Yuraba Corpuz, the vice chairman of Herbosa Homeowners Association and Chairman of Holy Family Credit Cooperative.
Descendancy Trust Fund (DTF)
This trust fund is created to ensure the continuity of the tra- ditional leadership and administration of the descendancy. Along side with this is the continuous research and propagation on the history, culture, symbols, artifacts, traditions, legend, myth and practices revolving around Lakan Dula of Tondo and his current descendants. Donations to DTF is welcome from among the descendants and non-descendants alike, however, it does not accept anonymous donations because it is a policy to prepare a list of DTF donors which we is called "founders group". If a donor wanted to be an anonymous, he must personally inform the hereditary leader at the ancestral house in Marikina Valley of his identity before his donation is accepted. Donations may be rejected if it will put the descendancy into a compromised light. The CDM Foundation is not actively campaigning for the DTF Project from sources outside of the clan since for the past years, it had been independently and silently pursuing projects with funds coming from the children and grand children of Ceferino Rivas Dulay.

BE THE CHAMPION OF THE POOR: CDM Foundation President Sofronio Dulay, in one of the affairs in Malacanang Palace in Manila, the Official Residence of the Philippine President. His philosopshy has always been   be the "beggar for the poor", meaning, equalize rich and poor by negotiating resources from the rich towards the poor.

EXTERNAL RESOURCES FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF MARIKINA: the strategy is to network for resources outside of Marikina and bring it down inside Marikina...long term...this is one of the topics discussed at 
the Dulay ancestral house among Prof. Toti Dulay; Prof. Ester Mendoza; Master - Conec, Inc. SVP Ester Susan Dulay (daughter of Quirino Governor Orlando Dulay);
Judge Crisanto Cornejo (former President of Nationalista Party and national president of National Fraternal of Eagles and son of Mayor Miguel Cornejo of Pasay City) and Roger Notarte, Project Director of the CDM Foundation. Before the dinner, we did the "Dine with the  Ancestor Ritual" of red wine and grapes among Dulay Clan members.After dinner, we did bonding in the videokee with old was a nice evening of true friendship...
BE LOYAL TO YOUR INSTITUTION. As a professional consultant of Marikina Mayor Marides Carlos Fernando, CDM President Toti Dulay tried to initiate pro - poor projects  like the Grameen Bank type of savings and loan association, Habitat For Humanity Housing Project, Kundiman Contest,  no placement fee going abroad for poor marikenos, child welfare projects, etc.. As a consultant, he learned his lessons dealing with bureaucratic red tape and kuskos balungos...he maintained his cool and did not push for things that can not be done at the level of readiness of the people around him. He learned to accept the facts of life.

THANKSGIVING: at the height of the Habagat, we posted the Oratio Imperata in all major FB groups in Marikina and requested everyone to pray it. At my house, we prayed to Our Lady of the Abandoned the said prayer. The water level of the river went down. It was well documented in Marikina News including the comments as water level is slowly subsiding. I discussed this phenomenon with Fr. Buco, Fr. Estrada and Fr. Lagrimas and the consensus is that it may help in documenting the miracles of our shrine, needed in its bid to become a Cathedral. In the picture, Kabayani Vice Chairman Marion Andres and Hester Cheng, and others, celebrated the thanksgiving at the residence of Prof. Toti Dulay. Center picture shows Prof. Carmela Ibanez of the CDM Foundation donating to the Kabayani /I-Toti Mo Na Yan Relief Operations. At the third picture, Prof. Dulay holding their family poodle together with other members of the I-Toti ExeCom, during the simple thanksgiving.
The Globalist Manifesto Project
This project is an advocacy campaign for the propagation of The Globalist Manifesto. The manifesto was formulated in a classroom of the Asian Institute of Management. It paints a vision for the future world and prescribed 10 stages towards the formation of a global government. According to a Jewish scholar Avner Falk, in his book entitled "Islamic Terror: Conscious and Unconscious Motives" (2008,pp.46-46), a proactive form of globalization is emerging, spawned by international corporations that wish to loosen trade restrictions. It is the global financial firms that have been the most eager proponents of this expansion. A group of advocates from different parts of the world had been pushing for an integrated global society as envisioned in the Globalist Manifesto which is the foundation of globalism ideology.Globalization is supposed to have shaken up the traditional Muslim world and put it under siege (Ahmed and Donnan 1994; Mohammadi and Saltford 2002; Ahmed 2003). Yet the idealist Globalist Manifesto, created in the Philippines, is a paean to peace and prosperity. It paints an idealized picture of our world. It is wishful thinking at its most glaring.[1]

Dulay Clan values education. To put that value into practice, the CDM Foundation helps and coordinates clan members to pursue education. It also releases an annual ranking of clan members based on education. The ranking only includes the direct bloodline of Ceferino who are in the college level.This is to encourage all members of Dulay Clan and descendants of Lakan Dula of Tondo to study hard. This is in accordance with the teaching of Ceferino Rivas Dulay on education which goes something like this: "Education is a necessity. Securing the education of your children is just like teaching them how to look for food when you are gone. No matter how fashionable or cocky you are, if you have no education, you are nothing. So, the best way to be popular and respected is to have good education. The higher the education, the better is the school, the better is the course - the better. Graduate with honors. Go for masteral and doctoral."

Sarap ng private life, walang atraso sa bayan, kasama pamilya lagi, sagana at walang issue na hinaharap....kung sakaling nasa gobyerno na ako, ganito pa rin gusto kong buhay - simple, modest, honest, walang atraso sa bayan at walang mataas na ambisyon na position at yaman...ok na ako sa simpleng buhay within my means.

The projects aims to develop consciousness on pre - hispanic aristocracy among modern Filipinos. It creates awareness  on this identity and efforts are being initiated to identify and communicate individuals and families whose family history includes connection with Lakan Dula of Tondo, in one way or another. The Philippine history would say that the Spanish persecutions of the descendants of Lakan Dula continued and intensified, but a lot of descendants loyal to the  Lakan maintained their native surnames like lakandula, dula, dulay, gatdula, dulayan, abdullah, rebadulla, dulatre, duldulao, dulayba, lakandola, lacandalo, lacandola, lacandula, dula - torre  and many others revolving around the root word “dula”. During the intense persecution of the Spaniards on the native aristocracy, some descendants have to disregard the “dula” root word and adopted totally different native sounding surnames for disguise, like magsaysay, lontoc, agbayani, acuna, salonga, gatchalian, bacani, macapagal, guingona, gatpandan, pangilinan, sumuroy, dagohoy, kalaw, salalima, soliman, pilapil, mabini, pagdanganan, macalintal, angara, bamba, datumanong,  panganiban, katigbak, macarambon, sakay, aglipay, kasilag, salamat, karingal, kiram, daza, lacanilao, lacanlale, gatchalian,  manalo, lagumbay, tamano, ilagan, bunye, pangandaman, maliksi, silang, badoy, puno, lapid, ziga, nalupta, binay, gatbonton, sinsuat, capulong, puyat, gatmaitan, macuja, dagami, ablan, capinpin, punongbayan, madlangbayan, gatlabayan, batungbakal, cabangbang, sumulong, gustilio, calungsod, capangoy, kapunan, etc, but continued fighting for the liberation of  the natives from Spain. Some of the descendents hid their Lakan Dula heritage by changing their names into the likes of  guevara,  aguinaldo, legaspi, aquino, mendoza, osmena, de Leon, estanislao, laurel, fernando, ejercito, delapaz, mercado, santos, bonifacio, de guzman, etc, while some adopted chinese surnames of their mother like lim, uy, go, tan, etc, but they continued to pursue a belligerant posture against Spain.

Descendants of Lakan Dula: CDM Foun dation President Toti Dulay was invited as a witness to the graduation of Fr. Blas Dula Lagrimas, as a priest at the Recoletos School of Theology. Fr. Blas is one of the Descendants of Lakan Dula. I am happy and relieved. Happy because our family has produced another priest. Relieved because our regular financial assistant to his studies will be over and channel them to other people who may need assistance. Thanks God for everything.

Fr. Blas Dula Lag rimas, just finished priest hood.He wants to pursue his masteral.The Dulay Family will continue supporting him. I requested him however to make his masteral thesis about the evangelization of Lakan Dula and his descendants. Was he baptized into Catholicsm? Is there a baptismal certificate to show? If yes, what was the Christian name he used? What is the history of Isla de Batag and Candawid in Samar and Samara, in Aringay. What was the name of the son of David Dula y Goiti who left Candawid in Samar, and married a pretty girl from La Union which started the Dulay Clan in Samara, Aringay and spread out to became the Dulay of the north.
DESCENDANTS OF LAKAN DULA: Fr. Blas Dula Lagrimas is explai ning to Prof. Toti Dulay his initial indings about his Masteral Thesis in San Sebastian about the "Evangelization of the Descendants of Lakan Dula". Fr. Lagrimas has been supported by the CDM Foundation on his study of priesthood and now, masteral degree. One of his findings is that former Mayor Hilario Dulay, father of Mayor Eleuterio Dulay of Laoang, Northern Samar inherited tracts of land from the estate of David Dula y Goiti in Candawid (Kan David), Isla de Batag, Laoang, but he gave it back to the estate later controlled by the the family of Candawid Barangay Kap.Macario Dulay. David Dula y Goiti is a grandson of Lakan Dula and the financier of the Sumuroy Revolt. This is a proof that the Dulay of Laoang, Samar all came from Candawid. Another findings is that Lakan Dula of Tondo is different from Carlos Lacandola of Arayat, Pampanga, because they have a different set of children. Carlos Lacandola is the great great grandfather of PGMA.

Copies of the book on Lakan Dula is available at the CDM Foundation office at the Dulay ancestral house for the  members of the Dulay Clan who visits their ancestral house.
Revisons will be done defending on the findings of Fr. Blas Dula Lagrimas.


The CDM Foundation will help you review your family history and accredit it if its within the Lakan Dula Kingdom. If the family history does not seem to be related with the kingdom, our clan historians will suggest further research. Once your history was declared accurate or logically probable, it will be included in the central files of family histories of the Lakan Dula Kingdom.
