No School’s Too Far

For a school in a far-flung barangay to become a recipient of well-built classrooms would seem like an unlikely reality to its teachers and pupils. For who would notice them when they are located far, far away? 

With its goal of extending help in rural areas and providing public school children with a better and quality learning environment, however, the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI), ably supported by its partners, definitely did.

Iloilo historical treasure highlighted in Smart’s Doon Po Sa Amin

Smart recently presented the winners of the 7th run of DPSA and at the awarding ceremonies, Smart Public Affairs Department Head for Community Partnerships Darwin Flores said that, “DPSA has revolutionized the way we look at our country. In the past years, students from over 300 partner schools highlighted local stories on destinations, delicacies, history, and heroes using multimedia tools, and online technologies.” For 2015, Smart opened the competition to all Filipinos from all walks of life.
Representatives of Team We Are Iloilo receive their trophy for winning 2nd place in the open division of Doon Po Sa Amin 7 for their entry about the historical significance of Sampaw Bato in San Joaquin, Iloilo. Presenting the award are National Youth Commission Commissioner JP Peñol (leftmost), Department of Tourism Chief of Staff Atty. Eugene Kaw (2nd to the right), and Smart Public Affairs Community Partnerships Department Head Darwin Flores (rightmost).

Among the finalists for the Open Category was a group of college students hailing from Iloilo. Their entry is a documentary of Sampaw Bato in San Joaquin, Iloilo. The natural rock formation holds historical value, as it was used as a refuge by several villagers fleeing from the Japanese army during World War II. It was also a strategic hiding spot for arms gathered by Hukbalahap forces during the Occupation.
