[Report] 2014 Brigada Ayuda Skwela Project

Posted on July 8, 2014 by


We had our 1st Brigada Ayuda Skwela last year in support of the Blue Moon Concert in the Philippines. Since we would like to continue what we have started, here comes the 2014 Brigada Ayuda Skwela and we are planning to do this yearly as long as we could.

This time, this project is in celebration of CNBLUE members’ birthdays (Jonghyun – May 15, Yonghwa – June 22, Minhyuk – June 28, Jungshin – September 15). Coincidentally, the start of classes here in the Philippines is in June.

Last year, we gave financial assistance to our beneficiaries as well as school supplies to 30 plus students residing at GK Baluarte. (Please see the photo on the left)

This time, we have given ₱ 1,500 PhP to our Blue House Project beneficiaries’ children as financial support for their school supplies or educational needs. The Lobo family has 2 children, Paul Sidney and Phoebe Jane (College). The Dela Cruz family has 3 children namely Maureen (Preparatory), Margarette (Grade 3), and Maxzinn Faye (College).

Beneficiary: Barangay Ampid 2 Day Care Center

 The Day Care Center, located at Salamat Ext. Ampid 2, San Mateo, Rizal, Philippines, is a one story building that can accommodate 20 – 30 students. It may be crowded, but, Teacher Lovely will never say NO to parents who would want their kids to learn for free. Teacher Lovely is a volunteer teacher in the Day Care Center who does not receive salary but the Barangay Captain gives her monetary allowance. Volunteer assistants, who are mostly parents or relatives of the children enrolled, assists her.

D-Day (Distribution Day): Fun and Activities

The day started with invocation given by Teacher Lovely who was also the emcee. Then, one of the volunteer boice, Claire Carupas made the welcoming remarks. Officials of the barangay, the captain and one of the councils, also gave a message.

Afterward, to liven up the day, Teacher Lovely prepared games. Special thanks to her for such fun activities! We are pretty sure that it was not only the kids who enjoyed the activities but the parents as well. It was followed by distribution of snacks (donuts & juices) we prepared for the kids.  They were so behaved that they lined up and grouped themselves according to their shifts.

With this project, we hope to encourage fellow boices to spread the goodness of being a CNBLUE fan and to inspire many children to bring the beacon of being the hope of the future.

Once again, thank you very much to all who contributed in making this project a success.

 Da Juk Ja Boice!
