How the employee got involved and why
It is because of my actual experience. I consider myself as a revelation that extending hands, sharing love and compassion to others would help them achieve their dreams. In my tender age, I was sponsored by David Dastous, an American charitable organization and that extended assistance helped me stood up from where I started and sustained my studies. As a form of gratitude and as my way of saying “thank you” to the group which unconditionally helped me, I involved myself in this organization. Further, when I was elected as Sangguniang Kabataan representative, I worked in passing resolutions, necessary to carry out programs to stimulate the passion of the youth to pursue their studies. I also initiated programs to enhance social engagement, cultural preservations, intellectual, moral and physical development of our “Kabataan” in our barangay. My advocacy continued, later on, I became the president then the adviser of the organization where I am committed to EMPOWER YOUTH through free education which is accessible to its sponsored students.
What work does the employee do for charity?
I am working for a charity as a LEADER and ADVISER who builds strong ties with other adjacent barangays in our town. I lead the organization to promote the value of education to the youth and encourage their parents to support them on their dreams. I also lead the organization to plan and execute ways in raising funds to support the financial needs, schools supplies and equipment of the covered students.
