All you need is perfect timing

It's funny how you sometimes do so many things simultaneously and then after a while, you either forget or run out of time for the those things. In my case, it's with my organizations that I usually lack time for. Especially my recent one; The Center for Social Action or CSA Vees. I've been neglecting it for months now because I've been so busy with Athan and school. I was afraid I would never ever have the opportunity to give my time to them, until today!:) I finally got the chance to do something for my org and that was to usher our 1st out-of-school children and youth congress. Our call time was 7AM and that was pure agony for me, since I'm not used to waking up that early anymore, but for the love of my org, I told myself to get up and fast!


Here are some photos to show you what happened...

Registration time was at 8AM, but some people were late or lost so we had to wait a little :)

Candid much? *head scratch...* =p

Finally, they're here!:) Since I haven't been attending our ALS training, I really couldn't wait to meet them :)

We were so busy trying to make sure they signed accordingly and had the right name tags on, because it was according to color. :)

"What's the spelling?" Was my question for the day. Go figure =p

The event venue was at our Augusto Rosario Gonzales theater, so after the registration the participants and facilitators were asked to go upstairs and start their program and workshop.

We also had amazing guest speakers for the congress forum, like President of E-Net Philippines Mr. Edicio dela Torre, , Hon. Salvador Escudero from the House of Committee on Basic education, and Under Secretary Florencia Dorotan. Basically they discussed the importance of education, how you should be wise in picking what you want, how you shouldn't give up on studying, and the importance of ALS. Btw, ALS means Alternative Learning System. Based on what I learned from Sir Yoks, ALS is taken by people who can't go to school, but really wants to learn something or by people who are too old to go to school, but also wants to learn/study. I believe last October 17 they had an ALS DepEd Accreditation Exam. I hope that went well! :)

Aside from having the registration task, I was also give the chance to usher the guests to the cafeteria to have their snacks/lunch and to answer their questions from time to time.

Like the ALS learners and facilitators, we were also given the "CLAIM YOUR RIGHT TO EDUCATION" t-shirts. SO cool!:)

After the program, we had snacks again then, say goodbye to the learners and I got attached to this really cute boy that reminded me of Athan. :) He was really cute and friendly. Too bad I wasn't able to take a picture of him. :( But I hope i'll see him again someday. :)

I didn't really know what to expect today. I thought it was all serious business, but I actually had fun. :) Got to bond with my fellow CSA Vees, I achieved helping my org a bit, Meeting the ALS people and to appreciate my education even more. :) Thank you to my fellow Vees for making me feel welcome on my first day!
