One of my fellow volunteers enthusiastically led some of the younger Aeta kids of Sitio Target in Sapang Bato, Angeles City, Pampanga during the song and dance activity prepared for them by our group.
It was the second time our non-profit organization called 'Acts of Love Community' visited the village for an outreach activity. The last time was in the year 2017. This year, we partnered with another NGO called "Nena Cares."
The day was filled with learning and excitement as the Aeta kids of various age groups participated and engaged themselves in the activities prepared for them. There was an arts class, film viewing, story-telling session, and lots of fun games. A free meal was also given to them and to end the day, the kids received school supplies which they could use since the opening of a new academic year was just around the corner.
It was such a genuinely heartwarming experience for all of us; a fulfilling one as well especially upon seeing the warm smiles of gratitude being painted in the faces of the kids.
