“Rigålu,” translated from Chamorro means “gift,” a theme that gives First Lady Calvo a conduit to support a wide range of community initiatives. Drawing from her intense connection to family, faith, compassion and service, the first lady is one of the Guam’s most vocal advocates for foster children. With foster care initiatives at the forefront of their work, the Rigålu Foundation has created a multi-faceted mission to strengthen the community through these main areas: Foster care, Early Childhood Education, Sports Tourism, The Arts & Humanities, & Literacy.
With each of these goals and her enthusiastic support for so many others, the First Lady’s Rigålu Foundation truly lives up to its name with the many gifts they share throughout the community. Beyond their accomplishments, First Lady Calvo is most proud of all those who have answered the Rigålu Foundation’s call to serve others. “We’ve helped so many people these past four years and with this momentum, I see the Rigålu Foundation being there to support future generations of Guamanians,” First Lady Calvo said. “But this success wouldn’t be possible without the miracle workers who help us make a difference in the lives of those who needs us most.” From the construction of permanent bus shelters; to providing hundreds of school uniforms and shoes to foster kids every year, the Rigålu Foundation’s initiatives are inspired by children and our collective need to strengthen their future. Along with sponsorship of important sports tourism-related activities such as the International Table Tennis Federation World Cadet Challenge; and the successful operation of the Government House Peace Festival for two years in a row, First Lady Christine M.S. Calvo sees each day as a new reason to nurture, build and inspire.
