Do you want to know what we did this summer?

Grand Volunteer Eyeball and Immersion
Three-day immersion and workshop with children of the Bantay Bata sa Komunidad Center.
Project management workshop


Grand 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.

Three-day Immersion
April 25, 27, and May 4
BBK, Pandacan

The temperature 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.

Heritage Park, Fort Bonifacio

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.
