Kuya Harvard is also an active member of Zonta. He is part of Zonta Club of Metro Ortigas Foundation.

Zonta is a very active NGO in the Philippines and international. They address challenges to women and children’s equality in science, business, public affairs and government by providing critical financial support through programs aimed at furthering education, leadership and youth development. One of their noble programs is reaching out to public high schools. This is called the Z Club.

We had a partnership with the students of Z Club of Balara High School. Their project here is to help and bond with the Kids of their community. This event was held at Balara Community Center’s Playground.

It was a simple happy event yet a great learning experience. The day started with getting to know you, lugaw (rice porridge), story telling, games and meeting with the members of the Z Club.

The thrust of both organizations were put together here. Z Club was able to further develop high school student’s leadership skills and social awareness. U! Happy Events has once again became a tool to support Kids.

We are excited about what this first chapter has started. We encourage our Partner Volunteers to continue to be active in our goals to reach to the Kids. 🙂
