Earth WarriorABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc.’s (ALKFI) Bantay Kalikasan recently conducted an Earth Warrior recollection in Dulag, Leyte.
The activity aimed to empower community members and to instill the values of integrity, responsibility, accountability, service with excellence and sharing of talents and resources for the service to others.
Forty-five representatives from Bantay Kalikasan-assisted projects in Leyte and Samar attended the one-day activity. They included community members from Sabang Daguitan Surf Camp, San Jose Skimboarding Camp, San Jose Farm, San Juan by the Bay project and Sohoton Caves and Natural Bridge project.
Former and new staff members of Bantay Kalikasan attended the recollection so that they might be more effective and efficient in providing technical support to the projects as well as to be one with the communities in protecting and sustaining their natural environment.
One of the highlights of the training was the spiritual talk given by Fr. Ramil Costib of Our Lady of Fatima Parish, who emphasized the need for community members to look back on their sacrifices and value the hardships they have been through after typhoon Yolanda struck the area in 2013.
The activity also included group games, team activities and activity reflections which highlighted better communication, coordination, teamwork and camaraderie among members of the organizations.
The participants, most of whom were affected by super typhoon Yolanda, gained a better appreciation of the impact of ALKFI’s programs and projects in transforming their lives and in molding their communities. (Story/Photos by: Democrito Figueroa and Ana Junio)
