Mambajao SK boosts learning support, environment care

MAMBAJAO, Camiguin, May 28 (PIA)--Emphasizing the importance of continued education and care for the environment, the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) of Mambajao doubles their effort in providing services amid the coronavirus disease (COVID)-19 pandemic.

"The pandemic affected our daily lives isa na po ang kabataan natin na nasa estado pa po ng pag-aaral. 'Yung iba nahihirapan po about the expenses they spent on online classes, 'yung iba naman po nagsa-struggle to pass ng patong-patong na mga modules," Mambajao SK Federation President Earl Gamao said during the Network Briefing News with Communications Sec. Martin Andanar, May 28. 

(The pandemic affected our daily lives and this includes our youth who are still studying. Some are having a hard time on financing the expenses for the online classes while the others are struggling on the bulk of modules they need to submit)

To address such need, the SK donated reams of bond paper, inks for printers, and other school materials to primary schools. 

The SK groups also aided in the distribution of the school materials noting that minors are not allowed to go outside of their homes. 

Care for environment

Living in one of the most visited places in Mindanao, Gamao said they continuously conduct the monthly SK Kalikasan where they clean their coasts and other areas, and plant trees together with the Katipunan ng Kabataan (KK) members. 

“Bukas (Tomorrow), May 29, we have the invitation from our local PNP [Philippine National Police] asking the presence of the SKs in the municipality to assist them in their activities like feeding program, coastal cleanup, canal declogging, and cleanup drive po sa (in) barangay centers,” the SK president added. 

They also held the Sikad Kabataan Unity Bike to heighten awareness on environmental care and health among the over 100 youth participants.

Online activities were also held such as the poster making contest and quiz bee to enjoin the youth in supporting the government's programs and campaigns. 

"Suotin po natin ang ating mga (Let us wear our) face masks at (and) face shields at all times. We the SKs and the youth, we will set ourselves as the helping hand of the government. Let’s be part of the solution, not a problem," Gamao urged. (RTP/PIA10)
