ICTSI-FI feeding program: Nourishing and nurturing lives By Marie Bernadette de Guzman

ICTSI Foundation, Inc. (ICTSI-FI), in partnership with the Manila Department of Social Welfare and Development and the Philippine Business for Social Progress, recently concluded its Lusog Dunong (Health Knowledge) Year 3 program. Lusog Dunong is a 6-month supplemental feeding program for 10 day care centers and two elementary school annexes of Rosauro Almario Elementary School in Parola and Isla Puting Bato, Barangay 20 in Tondo, Manila. The program also included capability building seminars called Alay Gabay Kay Inay (Guidance for Mothers) and Kaalamang Kabuhayan Sa Pantalan (Livelihood Knowledge at the Port) for the beneficiaries’ parents. This year, a total of 1,808 children and 1,163 parents from Parola and Isla Puting Bato in Tondo, Manila, benefited from the program. Previously, Lusog Dunong benefited a total of 841 students and 614 mothers in 2010, and 1,933 students and 802 mothers in 2011.

To celebrate the success of the 6-month program, a thanksgiving program was held for the feeding coordinators and parent-volunteers last 22 March. During the activity, Filipina Laurena, ICTSI-FI Deputy Executive Director, recognized those who shared their efforts in the daily implementation of the program and reminded them that the objective of the program is not only to feed the undernourished children but also to ensure that nurturance will be sustained within their own homes. Ms. Laurena said that the additional knowledge gained by the beneficiaries’ mothers under Alay Gabay, particularly about good parenting, nutrition, maternal and child care and financial literacy, is critical in the attainment of the program’s objectives.

Officers and staff of ICTSI Foundation, Inc., the Philippine Business for Social Progress, and Parents-Teachers Associations are all smiles during the thanksgiving program.

ICTSI-FI turns over equipment and tools to Batangas school ICTSI Foundation, Inc. (ICTSI-FI) recently turned over three sets of welding machines, six welding helmets, six welding gloves and eight boxes of various welding rods to Bauan Technical High School (BTHS) in Bauan, Batangas in the Philippines. Aside from over 300 BTHS students studying welding, a number of indigent residents of San Andres and San Roque in Bauan, Batangas who attend livelihood training on welding will also be able to use the new equipment and tools. The donation is part of ICTSI-FI’s Technology and Livelihood Assistance (TLE) program. TLE aims to help public schools improve their technical and vocational subjects, and to effectively provide livelihood skills training to high school students. It also aims to equip students with livelihood skills and enable them to join the workforce if they are unable to pursue college education after high school. (Marie de Guzman)
