As soon as the “ber” month starts, Christmas songs fill the air in eager anticipation of the coming holidays. It’s no wonder that Philippines has earned the distinction of celebrating the world’s longest Christmas season. It is indeed the season of gift-giving and we took our cue in sharing our blessings with well-deserving communities. We, at PHILWEBSERVICES, INC, in partnership with one of our valued client VINCENT QUITA DESIGNS, took time to do some little gift-giving activity for pre-school kids in the International Gospel Learning Center at Pier 4 Cebu City last Saturday, October 24, 2009.
The International Gospel Learning Center is a mission school for the kids residing in Pier 4, Cebu City. It is a preparatory learning center as a first step of the kid’s learning process. School supplies were given to the little students as gifts such as pencils, coloring materials, rulers, and of course, some food. The little room was filled with so much joy, tinkling sound of laughters and warm smiles from kids who have received the little presents we have provided. As their way of thanking, the kids were very participative in showcasing their talents. To the delight of everyone, one kid volunteered to sing her version of a popular telenovela soundtrack. Another child also showed her skills in the makeshift dancefloor.
In our continuing commitment to reach out and give back to our community, as well as to support the education of children in the Philippines in our own little way, this is yet another outreach activity for this year, focusing on children.
Here are some shots we took during our community outreach program activity. You can also check all the photos in our photo gallery.
