TwP Update: GTS Sponsors Barangay Feeding Program in Ilocos Norte

As their way of fulfilling their commitment towards Tourism with a Purpose (TwP), our Global Technology Solutions (GTS) team hosted a children's party and feeding program at San Simon II, Bacarra, Ilocos Norte last 24 May 2014.

The town’s Supplemental Feeding Program is one of the projects of the Local Government of Ilocos Norte for children of indigent families headed by Barangay Captain Manuel Dumayag with the help of the Barangay Health Workers (BHW).  With an annual budget for every barangay that is only good for three months, a barangay can only extend the project with the assistance and donations from individuals, organizations, and companies. That is why the residents  appreciated this simple activity by the GTS team. The excitement and joy on the children's faces eased the team's exhaustion from the long drive.  

The GTS  team concluded the activity by distributing school supplies and goodie bags. In line with the TwP program, they toured Ilocos Norte, including the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation in Burgos town, which is one of  the 25 Philippine Gems finalists.
