“Experience is the best teacher.”
All of us would have varied opinions regarding the cliche. Sometimes I think that you don’t really need to involve yourself in all kinds of situations to learn; history is helpful in that way. But then again, I just have to blurt out my feelings and commend our organizers for the opportunity this semester for us students to define nationalism and to be able to help and be helped by the society. I hope that this semester’s impact would aid everyone in moulding what “Tatak UP” really means for each of us.
This semester, I belong to a group who will work with the National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC).
“The National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC) was created by virtue of Republic Act (RA) 8425, otherwise known as the “Social Reform and Poverty Alleviation Act,” which took effect on 30 June 1998.
RA 8425 institutionalizes the government’s Social Reform Agenda (SRA), which enjoins NAPC to strengthen and invigorate the partnerships between the national government and the basic sectors.”
Aligned with recent events, they have organized a fun run for rebuilding and helping the victims of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda. People are invited to participate or even just share regarding this event. Remember, a little help goes a long way; let us pay it forward!
