SOP Day 1 Reflection
Posted January 8, 2012on:
Last Saturday, the people in my mentoring group and I went to the Laura Vicuña Foundation in Quezon City. This was the first day of our group’s SOP or Saturday Outreach Program. Before we went to the foundation, our group first met with each other in Xavier School. After everyone had arrived, we all left to go to the foundation. When we arrived there, we were first given a short orientation about the Laura Vicuña Foundation. After this, the girls in the institution gave us a presentation and then we introduced ourselves and they also introduced themselves to us. This SOP was cut short because they had to go elsewhere that day. I felt a bit sad because there were many children like the ones that I met that day, but I also feel hopeful because of the institutions that are actually doing something to help these children. I learned that everybody deserves an equla chance to live a normal life no matter if you are rich or poor.
