The Faculty Association spearheads Advocacy Campaign and Gift-Giving Program
The NLPSC Faculty Association (FA) in cooperation with the College of Teacher Education (CTE), College of Business Education (CTE) and the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) sponsored an Advocacy Campaign and Gift-Giving Outreach Program at Sitio Mindanao, Amguid, Candon City, Ilocos Sur on December 22, 2015.
The activity featured lectures on Health Education by Mrs. Amelia C. Antonio, the FA Vice President; Values Education by Mr. Samson C. Nisperos, the FA PRO; Entrepreneurship by Miss Vicky C. Albayalde, CBE faculty; and a cooking demonstration by Mr. Santos Sanchez with the assistance of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) students.
This extension activity was conducted to reach out to the indigent families of Sitio Mindanao, one of the three sitios of barangay.
Sitio MIndanao is located on top of the mountain, a half-an-hour nerve-wracking trip away from Palacapac, Candon City. Since the area is mountainous, folks in the sitio do not have lands to till, thus, they just depend their living in gathering root crops that are available within the vicinity. Because of this depressed condition of the people, the barangay captain of Amguid, Mr. Romeo Del Rosario, expressed his sincere appreciation to the joint efforts of the North Luzon Philippines College as a whole for its benevolence and generosity in choosing the sitio as the beneficiaries of the program. He also expressed his hopes that the group will come back in the next years for the same purpose.
The highlight of the program was the distribution of gift items to the 43 households of the sitio. A simple delight was also prepared for the children by facilitating parlor games for them to play.
Present during the program were the barangay officials headed by Mr. Del Rosario, and the barangay health worker of Amguid. Among the NLPSC team present were the FA officers with the President, Mrs. Maribel C. Ibanez, faculty members of the CBE with the Dean, Mrs. Nora H. Soliven; faculty members of the CAS with the Dean, Dr. Severino G. Alviento; and faculty members of the CTE.
