At first, the project had its hard time organizing due to lack of manpower and people who are willing to support the program. On the month of May 2012, the organization started to implement the project and the different officers led by our Vice-president for Administration, Sctr. Christine Sarabia, started to look for different children who belong to marginalized members of the society in Dampas especially those children who are working in the dumpsite area. After 2 weeks, we were able to get 16 beneficiaries and most of them work in the junk shop area. When the classes opened last June, the beneficiaries received their free school supplies to support them in their schooling.
Last November 9 - 10, 2012, the beneficiaries were able to experience School Camp and Campfire Presentation. They had an enjoyable night during the campfire presentation. The conduct of the school camp of Dampas Elementary School was assisted by the officers and members of the organization namely Christine Sarabia, Jade Dumancas, Albert Puagang and Roselle Mhae Itong. All of them were invested rover scouts during the Bohol Island State University (BISU) Investiture Ceremony.
The beneficiaries enjoyed the different activities from the skills demonstration, skills tourney and team building activities prepared for them. The school head and school coordinator of Dampas Elementary School was very supported in the implementation of the project and school camp.
What made the beneficiaries more happy is that they were able to receive new shoes and manuals on the afternoon of November 10, 2012. The uniforms were kept for safe keeping. As a gratitude to the person behind in providing them the necessary materials, they made their own "Thank you and Birthday Card" to Sct. Ryan Reyes from California, USA. The different cards were made from the creativity of the beneficiaries of the Cords for Cause Project.
Upcoming Programs of the Project...
On the other hand, a discussion with Sir Datu Raymond regarding the Cords for Cause Project was made and a new partnership was established. With the aim of bringing quality youth development program to far flung places especially those living on islands and hard to reach areas, the organization in partnership with OSY will bridged the gap and will let them experience the project program. (Note: A separate article will be provided once the list of beneficiaries willbe finalized.)
Belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY to SCT. RYAN EDWIN REYES.
