WYA Asia Pacific launches WYA Westbridge Club


PAREF Westbridge in Iloilo City, Philippines officially launched its WYA Westbridge Club last August 23, 2014. An introductory session was given by WYA Asia Pacific Regional Director Lord Pomperada to the founding officers and members of the WYA Club to orient them on WYA and the duties and responsibilities of the WYA Club. Lord also presented the different regional and international projects of WYA and how the students could get involved.

WYA Asia Pacific Summer Camp graduates Sebastian Barredo, Jian Dominic Tan and Luis Miguel Cacho will be leading the formation of the WYA Club. “I feel very excited in opening the WYA Club in Westbridge. Our main priority as of now is to introduce WYA and its ideals to our schoolmates and to give them a background on its history. After that, we will proceed with our projects including a feeding program,” Jian Tan, WYA Asia Pacific Summer Camp graduates, shares.

WYAAP warmly welcomes the formation of the WYA Westbridge Club. The WYAAP regional staff are very excited for the upcoming projects and activities of the Club. Through the presence of the WYA Club, WYA Asia Pacific and the Westbridge students hope to promote greater awareness among young people on their human dignity.
