WYAAP Brings the HDC to Surigao City, Philippines

World Youth Alliance Asia Pacific held a two-day Human Dignity Curriculum (HDC) implementation for Junior-Senior High and University Students last August 10-11, 2019 in Surigao City, Surigao del Norte, Philippines.

The implementation was organized in collaboration with the Surigao Youth Convergence, a local organization based in Surigao City, and was officially endorsed by the Department of Education – Surigao City. The program included lectures, activities, and breakout discussions for students to heighten their knowledge about human dignity, friendship, and excellence that aims to promote human flourishing.

The class was composed of students, aged 15-21 years old, coming from the different schools within Surigao City and the sessions were held at the Department of Education – Surigao City Division Office. The discussions were led by WYAAP Staff Mary Imbong and Joyce Cedeño, along with WYAAP member Krystle Bayombong.

The HDC is a K-12 curriculum that brings light to a holistic understanding of the human person in order for youth to have a deeper understanding of who they are. Through the modules and activities, we help students understand the human person, develop healthy habits, mindfulness and good decision-making skills, and foster a strong sense of purpose.

WYAAP extends its gratitude to Mr. Raxiey Adolfo, Exeuctive Director of Surigao Youth Convergence and the Department of Education – Surigao City for contributing to the implementation of the HDC. WYAAP also thanks all its participants, volunteers, and donors for their support to the mission of WYA.
