Oro alumni group holds program on empowerment

Cagayan de Oro-based alumni of US Government Scholarships recently conducted a program dubbed as “The Citizen Starter Pack,” a two-day workshop on citizen empowerment in the aspects of human rights, quality education, and disaster preparedness at the American Corner of Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan.

“This is an opportunity to be empowered as citizens and to have a productive interaction,” said Judge Jerlie Luis Requerme, president of the US Government Alumni Association (USGAA) CDO-BUGKOS Chapter. “Be the change that you want to see.”

The program combines empowering a vulnerable sector of society – the youth – by developing in them a deep appreciation of the rule of law and empowering teachers through parallel training sessions on teaching methodologies and skills.

The program hinges on the three objectives: (1) Empowering the vulnerable sector of the youth; (2) Improving access to quality education; and (3) Enhancing environment management. It was participated in by students and teachers from various public and private high schools in Cagayan de Oro City.

This event was organized by USGAA CDO-BUGKOS Chapter in partnership with the US Embassy in the Philippines and sponsored by Requerme Construction and Development Corp, Integrated Bar of the Philippines – Misamis Oriental Chapter, Librewry Café, and Paul Omar Gangoso. (xu comm)
