CLARIN, Misamis Occidental (PIA)–The Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) of Barangay Pan-ay distributed back-to-school kits and hygiene kits as part of its “Werpang Kabataan Youth Project” among 433 learners of Pan-ay and Masabud Elementary School.
The program is in partnership with Gitib Inc., and Consuelo Foundation together with the Barangay Pan-ay and Masabud, Clarin, here.
Gitib Inc, as the resource center for sustainable development, taps local government units (LGUs) and youth council to discuss and take steps on issues and concerns, injustices and challenges that are affecting various groups and sectors in the community most especially the most vulnerable children and youth.
The back-to-school kits and hygiene kits for elementary learners were turned over by the CSO partners, November 7 at Working Congressman Community Center, Purok 3, Pan-ay, Clarin, Misamis Occidental.
Sangguniang Kabataan Chairperson of Pan-ay Aljon Mariquit said, “Wala namo damha na ang among damgo- nakab-ot gayud. Dako kaayo ni ug tabang sa mga kabataan uban sa ilang mga ginikanan kay tungod magamit kini sa modular classes. Ang akong pasalamat sa tanang mga tawo nga nahimo nga instrumento aron mamugna kini.”
(We did not expect that our dream will really be achieved. It will be a great help for the children and parents because these can be used for modular classes. Thanks to all the people who have been instruments in realizing this program.)
Werpang Kabataan Youth Project is just one of the many programs of Barangay Pan-ay SK implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic. The council also has a pending proposal with other organizations to give support as well to the college learners who are currently experiencing challenges on their online classes.
