Project Damlag Year 3

Project Damlag turns three as the school year 2015-2016 commences.

The UP Omega Alpha Alumni Association, Inc. is gearing towards providing the school supplies at the beginning of the month of June and turning over the monetary support by Christmas vacation.

In the past two years, the organization had to wait until all students were sponsored and the school supplies were delivered to Napalico Elementary School in December which was more than halfway the school year.

This year, as soon as we complete the budget on school supplies for the whole population of the kids, we will immediately buy the supplies and deliver them before classes start, and we will continue the campaign until we gather the rest of the budget on the school contribution, food, and operational costs.

Alongside UPOAAAI is Switotwins, Inc. headed by Ms. Glorypearl and Ms. Gloryrose Dy, and Mr. Marben Picar who gave a 2-day Digital Storytelling Workshop with 30 students from the elementary school. The digital stories are featured on their site. The students were able to experience how to create a story line, draw their characters, record their voices, and to have fun in the whole process using digital cameras and computers.

UPOAAAI invites you to help promote education and be a prime mover of change.
