We would like to invite you to the 3rd GK1MB Bayani Challenge – dubbed as H.O.P.E. 2008: Building the highway of Peace –  an event where nation building is an adventure pushed to the extreme. Conflict and divisiveness have brought destruction to this land of promise. Brother Filipino fighting brother Filipino – PEACE must be BUILT.

So, we call on all bayanis to come and join us in the province of Bukidnon and Lanao del Sur on April 21-25, 2008 for 5 grueling days of back-breaking work, tears, laughter and many unforgettable experiences. All you have to do is group yourselves into a team of 15 people and register.

And on April 26, 2008 all will converge in Wao, Lanao del Sur for the 4th Caravan for Peace.

Be part of this historic event where Christians, Muslims and Lumads, in genuine friendship, build peace together in Mindanao!

Please see the guidelines /mechanics of the event attached along with this letter. For more information, you may send an email to gkbayanichallenge2008@gmail.com or call trunk line (02) 718-1738 to 41 local 105 or mobile +639052357283 and look for Franz or Jaja.
