There's a hero in all of us. This is what we at YesPinoy Foundation have been advocating for the last nine years— heroism for young people, heroism with young people, and heroism by young people.
Through partnerships and collaboration, we help in building a SUPER nation by promoting resilience, education and volunteerism. And we witnessed all of these during our #IamSuper activity in Villa Maria Integrated School, a school serving an aeta community in the hills of Porac, Pampanga. Kaya naman, isang pagpapasalamat sa mga kabataan, guro at magulang ng Villa Maria at sa Local Government ng Porac sa pagtanggap sa aming hamong gawing 'way of life' ang paghahanda sa anumang disaster.
Isang karangalan ding makasama si Norman King, ang unang Aeta na nakatapos sa University of the Philippines, upang mas marami pang kabataang Aeta ang ma-inspire ng kanyang kwento, mahikayat na mag-aral nang mabuti at maging handa sa anumang hamon ng buhay tulad ng kalamidad.
We are also blessed to be supported by the Rotary Club of Makati, led by Governor Al Montecillo, President Alfredo Pascual and Past President David Ackerman. Their generosity has allowed us to make a difference in the lives of young Indigenous Peoples.
Our other partners have also lent a hand in ensuring this project's success including Mrs. Liza Timbol, AIR21, Oddefy, Sterling Paper Group of Companies, Thera-OTC, FYT.PH, Drugstores Association of the Philippines-Pampanga Chapter, Project Kaluguran, Resorts World Manila, Vamos, RunRio, MVERT, DongYanatics, our volunteers, and the Local Government of Porac and Pampanga.
In times like this, we are reminded that we can all be SUPERs in our own little ways, and we can help create Young, Empowered and Service-oriented Pinoys for a better and resilient nation.
Maraming salamat sa inyo, aming mga heroes! At happy 9th anniversary sa lahat ng miyembro ng pamilya ng @yespinoy !
