WYAAP Implements HDC Anew

World Youth Alliance Asia Pacific (WYAAP) recently concluded another successful run of its Human Dignity Curriculum (HDC) last October 30, 2017 at Payatas, Quezon City, Philippines.

The program ran daily from October 21 to October 27, 2017, in partnership with the Consuelo “Chito” Madrigal Foundation (CCMF). The class was composed of students, aged 18 – 23 years old, coming from the different educational programs of CCMF and were held at the CCMF Payatas Learning and Livelihood Village. On October 30, WYAAP and CCMF held a small graduation ceremony for the students.

Throughout the sessions, students were taught the importance of the recognition of their dignity in order to develop good and responsible decision-making, and a strong sense of meaning and purpose.

Sessions include discussions, activities, and games

The sessions were led by WYAAP staff Zarina San Jose, and WYAAP interns Cesca Balasbas and Marielle Morillo. Volunteers from the WYA Ateneo de Zamboanga Chapter and the WYA Laguna Provincial Chapter also joined some sessions.

The HDC is an educational program of World Youth Alliance that focuses on encouraging students to understand their dignity as human beings. It aims to guide the students to a path wherein understanding this dignity, they would be able to nurture habits that would develop their way of living and worldview.

WYAAP staff and interns lead the discussions

CCMF is an organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of distressed families in selected communities in the Philippines. Its programs seek to enhance the human dignity and self esteem of individuals and families through various interventions such as scholarships, livelihood training, and technical-vocational courses, among others.

WYAAP would like to extend its gratitude to the Executive Director of CCMF, Dr. Corito Bautista, and the staff of the CCMF Payatas Learning and Livelihood Village for making this partnership a success.
