To celebrate the start of a new school year, MicroMissions launched The Waterproof Project to provide 363 public school scholars from Payatas Orione Foundation and Young Focus with rain gear – raincoats and umbrellas.
Twenty-one MicroSourcing volunteers journeyed to Payatas to join the scholars for the annual Back-to-School party and gift-giving ceremony. The morning began with a word of thanks from the Executive Director of Payatas Orione Foundation Fr. Julio Cuesta, FDP. He expressed gratitude to MicroMissions for the valuable contributions and community partnership since 2013.
The volunteers were then entertained by the scholars who had prepared two presentations. A group of elementary school scholars sang Paraiso, then the high school scholars danced to a mash-up of May Tatlong Bibe and the Running Man Challenge. Later, the volunteers joined the scholars for the Stomp Balloon and Paper Dance games.
MicroMissions is grateful to all employees who participated in the Back-to-School appeal and donated rain gear. Your act of kindness will ensure that our public school scholars stay rainproof this rainy season. We are also thankful to MOA Operations Manager Jico del Rosario and his team who also donated school supplies to Payatas Orione Foundation. The donation was gladly received by Education Program Officer Sheila Mira. She expressed her gratitude on behalf of the scholars and parents present.
Apart from the in-kind donations we received, volunteerism is the strength of MicroMissions and we are appreciative of all employees who extended a hand in the days leading up to the Back-to-School party. Your valuable contribution led to the success of our outreach activity:
Karen Cayamanda, Celso Trinidad Jr., Jenina-Rica Cortez, Joannah Kris Aguas, Jan Cyrill Dimaranan, Finella Panlilio, Daryl Dabatos, Abegail Rodriguez, Mary Grace Manalo, Marvin Tenoria, and Sharon Cabujat
It is amazing how a simple act of kindness can bring so much joy to a child and we are humbled by the experience.
