Project Title and Theme:
The 2008 Feeding Program
Healthy Body as the Foundation of Healthy Mind
Background and Rationale:
In realization of the 2001 Katipunan ng mga Kabataan and Sangguniang Kabataan’s General Objective – the KKP and SK shall be committed for the total development of the youth and John Dewey’s ethical contribution – the foundation of a healthy mind is a healthy body, it crosses our mind to conduct a Feeding Program that envisions for a healthy citizenry.
Individuals need to be physically healthy and mentally upright for them to function properly in our society, so this project was conceptualized to sustain and ensure that citizens of Lumbac are eating the right foods especially for the lowly and financially unstable.
The success of this project will be measure after three (3) long months. We will be able to see progress from the malnourished children as they gain weight. Undeniably, three months was too short to see progress, but this project also aspires to teach their families the importance of budgeting and providing healthy foods at a very minimal costs.
This year, SK plans to make this an annual activity to provide the youth a place for sustaining their nutritional needs. Making them pride of Lumbac.
