Lapis at Papel Project @ San Roque Elem School

What: Lapis at Papel Community Project
Where: San Roque Elem. School, San Roque Bato, Catanduanes
When: May 22, 2017

We traveled by land, left Manila @ 4pm and arrived Tabaco Port  4am, then we waited for the Ferry Boat first trip at 7 in the morning. It was a very tiring journey but worth our time. Seeing the happy faces of elementary pupils, the very accommodating teaching and non teaching staff, and the appreciation of the parents make me believe that it was mission accomplished. 264 pupils were given school supplies, each students received: bag, pad paper, 2 pencils, 2 ballpens, crayons, art paper, 10 notebooks, glue, ruler, eraser, and plastic envelop.

Women's Month Celebration @DAWN

 The Women and Children of Development Action for Women Network (DAWN) witht the Executive Director Carmelita Nuqui


 Simple token given to all women of DAWN


Volunteering is a way of giving back to your community while developing important social skills, and gaining valuable work experience all at the same time. I always shared to everyone how blessed I am to be a volunteer of the organization. The endless lessons and learnings cannot be describe in words because it has a depth meaning in my life. It has given me the opportunity to see life in other perspective.

There are so many beneficial ways of getting involved in and giving back to community. Not only is volunteering a rewarding experience, but it helps me realize to live my life with sense of meaning and purpose. The happiness I felt will always play a role in pursuing my advocacy.

Ang bukas ay hindi natin hawak,
Maaring lumigwak sa kisap-mata,
Kaya ang bawat oras ay mahalaga,
Gamitin ng tama at tulungan ang iba.
