226 Ate Charina’s Avilon Zoo Tour with Tao Kids
Written by Kuya Harvard
The sun finally came out last Saturday after a series of rain and cloudy weather! It was indeed an ideal time for a tour at the Avilon Zoo in Montalban, Rizal. We partnered with Tao of Human Caravan to reach out to 25 kids who live within the proximity.
Ate Charina Tan and her family were our sponsors. Ate Charina is a long time friend of our President, Ate Te Candano. Ate Charina planned this birthday event quite early. You can say that she was excited and really willing to bless kids. .
Together with Ate Charina’s group and U! Happy Events volunteers, we were able to partner with every kid on the trip. We divided them into groups. Trivias were given from time to time during the tour, so everyone was very attentive. After almost two hours, the kids were in high spirits, all smiles and hungry. We had the same teams eat lunch together.
After ice cream, we tested each group’s learning experience. To our surprise, almost all questions were answered during our games. Group 5 won and the kids got story books from our partner Adarna Publishing. All kids received a school supply set plus a school bag of goodies which contained vitamins, notebooks, chips and slippers.
