My Travel Story

by: Danica Ajero Start Date: Jan 3, 2018 - End Date: Jan 22, 2018
Hello! I'm Danica from The Philippines!

Some information about me first. I love joining different groups that do charity works especially those who are sharing the gospel. I started to get active in joining outreaches in 2012. I have joined numerous groups already doing outreaches at the mountains, orphanages, slums, streets, schools; name it! I love it! This is something I can imagine doing until I get old! To date, I have organized 6 outreaches already. I have organized an outreach too for the Aetas last April 2017. 200 hygiene kits were distributed. https://goo.gl/UsFZG6

An article of one of the outreaches I've joined for the Aetas: http://bit.ly/2qgDN7k

My latest outreach was at Kapangan, Benguet. A very mountainous province. My group gave 42 gift boxes filled with school and hygiene supplies for the students of Beleng Belis Barrio School, gave snacks and shared the gospel. You can view some of the photos here: http://bit.ly/2AbO5Fz

I have two outreaches that I hopefully could join this January.

First, Climb With A Purpose hosted by Taong Bundok (Jan 20-22). Group aims to give school supplies to the students of Es Esa Elementary School, Kibungan, Benguet. A school very far from the city proper. We'll trek for hours to send the supplies.

Trips costs: Around $60 (fare and food)

Also, this coming January 27-28 I have the oppurtunity to join a group called Project Liwanag (https://www.projectliwanag.org). Project Liwanag is a non-profit organization that is devoted to empower the indigenous by providing sustainable projects that address the lack of access to basic necessities like light, water, housing, and sustainable livelihood. Through grassroots transformational partnerships and ensuring community involvement, the organization hopes to create impactful, meaningful, and empowering solutions.

The project will be painting the classrooms. Beneficiaries are 50 Aetas from Nursery and Grade 1 students of Sitio Pisapungan and the neighboring community of Sitio Manalal in the province of Tarlac. The classroom: http://bit.ly/2CvMRLo Credits: Project Liwanag

The Aetas, Agta or Ayta are the original black race (Africans) that live in scattered, isolated mountainous northern part of The Philippines on the island of Luzon before the Austronesian (Malays and Asian groups) migrations.

This will be my first time to volunteer for this organization. I hope you will support me. :)

Going to the school starting from the drop-off point will require us to drive an hour or more by a 4x4 truck and then trek more or less 2 hours. It is indeed challenging to reach the place.

If you need more information about the projects that I'll join send me a message. I'll be glad to answer you.

Please support me... I only need around $120.00 to join the projects. My fare and food are all-in there.

I'm very willing to reach out for the needy. I'll be sending you a report of my experience there.

Thank you in advance! <3

Hugs,
Danica :)
