Volunteer Eyeball and Immersion
April 26, 2005 (Tuesday); 1-5 p.m.
UST Engineering Sports Complex
83 vivacious children,
over 60 enthusiastic volunteers, 10 carefully-planned activity
and game booths in one scorching afternoon proved to be a
tedious task. From the giving out of nametags to the distribution
of food, from dividing the children into groups to convincing
them to join the games, everything was taxing. But everything
was well worth it. Sheena and Mars learned all sorts of jokes
from the children; Chezka took her pictures with them; Marie
gave out flaglets and her nametag for souvenir. Above anything
else, it was an afternoon full of unforgettable fun, and for
the volunteers, an experience full of meaningful insights.
April 25, 27, and May 4
inside our rooms for the three-day period reached 37 degrees
maybe, but it was another wonderful opportunity for us all
to see children who were very eager to learn. We had arts
and crafts on the first day, reading and math tutorials on
the second and Filipino games on the third. In the end it
was we who learned to cope with the high temperature and humidity.

Although the most
grueling project for us this summer, the Walkathon, set on
the 21st of May, is expected to raise 1 million pesos for
children’s education. We are all sure we could realize
this goal as all of us hardly lack optimism.
