Joining the Outreach Program is one of the requirements in our NSTP (National Service Training Program) subject where we are going to help and encourage the people in an unprivileged localities. We were assigned in an Aeta Community at Sitio Target, Barangay Sapang Bato, Angeles City, Pampanga.
My section’s contributory activity is to paint on the faces of the young Aetas which they really enjoyed. Most of the kids were coming back just to put more paints on their faces and also to other parts of their bodies. It was such a heartwarming feeling to see smiles on their lips even just for the simple and little acts we did for them.
While other sections also held another activities such as teaching them in math and science, give massages, help them and teach them how to make a mask, giving them food and many more.
We didn’t mind staying under the heat of the sun just to serve them because beyond the help we gave them, there is the happiness in our hearts that we made the Aeta community happy. Such a tiring day but it was all WORTH IT.
