The Ateneo de Davao University Arrupe Office of Social Formation launched its annual Christmas Outreach Project Pagbabahagi 2017 last December 3.
Arrupe, in partnership with the SAMAHAN Central Board, the student government of Ateneo, will conduct Pagbabahagi in St. Therese School of Miarayon, Brgy. Miarayon, Malaybalay City, a Jesuit mission area in Bukidnon. Pagbabahagi is a social formation and engagement project which strives to respond to the urgent and varied concerns of community partners.
They will raise funds which will be used to implement projects and activities for the development of the students most especially the Lumad scholars.
During the launching at the St. Therese of School Miarayon Gymnasium, Arrupe Director Lilibeth L. Leh-Arcena presented the Pagbabahagi year-long engagement plan. Workshops on Financial Literacy, Agribusiness and Entrepreneurship, Microsoft Office application literacy, and Journalism and Public Speaking will be done. There will also be training on First Aid and Emergency Response, Personality and Anti-Bullying Campaign, and Youth Student Leadership.
The Ateneo de Davao Computer Studies Cluster will also donate personal computers; the Natural and Sciences and Mathematics Cluster will give science laboratory apparatus; the School of Engineering and Architecture will donate school supplies, and School of Nursing will provide first aid kits.
“It was a heartwarming experience for me, knowing that I embodied the vision of the Ateneo for me to become men and women for others and a Sui Generis Leader for Mindanao,” Lyd Ejira Ducusin, SAMAHAN Executive Secretary said.
