In the second month of my leadership, we at Rotary Club of Imus East is coming up with an adoption of a less privileged community in our city. We have made plans in alleviating the difficulties this community is experiencing. Our projects for the Areas of Focus will be concentrated to this community, however, the time constraints in coordinating our action plan to various concerned establishments to implement our education projects is being hampered by MECQ. Though the coordination of the planned project is underway, the implementation is not happening yet, however, we have other ways to initiate our Education and Basic Literacy projects.
For many years now, we have been supporting various public schools within Imus and Bacoor whether through Brigada Eskwela or other Education-based project request from them. It was our promise to continue in serving them even in this pandemic time and scheduled a visit in one of the schools with the intention to help them in their need.
We, and I mean, myself as the Life Changing President together with the generously kind IPP Myrna Dacanay, defied the odds by going to one of the schools we support last August 10, 2021 which is Buhay na Tubig Elementary School in Imus, Cavite. We may not have given the school anything innovative, but to us, we have given them something significant for the Teachers’ efficiency in producing the modules needed by their students when school starts in September. Most of the students in Buhay na Tubig Elementary School are into the module learning system due to their financial diifficulty and so the Teachers will have a better use of the reams of bond papers we have donated to them because they need it in printing many copies of the modules. Not ignoring the Teachers and Staff’ safety of this public school, we provided them anti-covid essentials such as face masks, face shields and alcohol to protect themselves against the Covid virus and somehow help them work effectively.
We were received with warmth and sincere gratitude for our donation to the school and their incoming students undergoing blended learning system. Somehow, we were elated with this acceptance, a show of appreciation for something so small and yet valuable to them. RC Imus East never forgets a promise which we have made, to continue in assisting our adopted public schools and making a life changing service to them through this challenging year.
