Welcome Pearl and Dominque!
We are very happy to welcome Pearl and Dominique in our MARIPHIL Family! The two "newcomers" recently graduated at University of Mindanao in Davao and together with Raquel they are now responsible for the area of social work in the Children's Village. At the ages of 20 and 21 they are not only open-minded and bring new ideas to the team but are also keen to gain new experiences and to enhance their skills. Just after a few days one could tell that they are at the exactly right place.
In addition to their work in the Children's Village, our social workers are also responsible for regular community-based programs within our project area. Once a month, they drive to a school in Lower Panaga to conduct a Feeding-Program. The students are always glad about the visit and the nutritious food. During the week they live at the school and every Friday they have to take a 4-hours walk to the mountains to spend the weekend with their families. The school and the Barangay Lower Panaga with about 250 inhabitants will also be supported by MARIPHIL as part of “Share the Rice 2018”. During Christmas time MARIPHIL is collecting donations and will buy as many rice sacks as possible to distribute the rice to indigent families.
