PANDOO Foundation  A movement engaging and empowering children and families in the Philippines through education📚, youth leadership👫 & community building🏘

Our Barrio Luz BIRC is up and running! Kids have been coming in and out, reading, hanging out, and participating in morning workshops. -
Today, our social worker Jet Ong led a workshop on meditation, "Breathing Colors", with our Pandoo kids. -
"Meditating, especially for kids, is important because it allows them to be present, be calm and reduce stress and anxiety, as sometimes they too get affected of the problems at home." -
We take care of our beneficiaries all around: emotionally, mentally and physically. We help them grow in the most positive way we can.
Afterwards, they all created bookmarks with positive affirmations on them for all the books they get to read at the BIRC! Awesome, right ? -
Join us! Come read a book with us, participate or even lead a workshop or just volunteer. -
BIRC Open Hours @Barangay Luz 4th Flooor, 10am-4pm -

We asked our interns from Cebu Doctors' University what favorite quote comes to mind when they think about volunteerism. Jerielyn wrote this quote by Confucius. Thanks for sharing, Jerielyn! ❤

What's gonna work? Heartwork! ❤ Creating and learning how to create is one of our kids' favorite things to do. Seeing their smiles after every art session in our After Class program makes our heart skip a beat.

"Spending time with kids broaden my perspective in life most especially it inspires me to pursue psychology more. The kids has tested my patience and make me understand more that people are diverse, different and understanding this makes you or allows you to be effective in influencing them in a positive way.

_ Lastly, it made me realize that I am much capable of a lot of things and I need to go out there to extend a helping hand." - Adela, Intern

Since June, we had interns from Cebu Doctors' University​ spending days and weeks with us and our kids. Sharing with you some of their personal realizations in the next few days. We hope that these stories and realizations will inspire and encourage you to join us in this journey too.

Since June, we had interns from Cebu Doctor's University spending days and weeks with us and our kids. We are grateful to share with them the joy of spending and learning with our kids and with our staff, that includes our resident chef, Ate Rose. Ate Rose never fails to whip up yummy lunches and laugh her heart out. Her laughter, smile, hug and motherly care is something we look forward to everyday. Thank you for all that you do, Ate Rose! <3

Big or small, if you gave your all, will make a difference and bring smiles to the kids and kids at heart! What acts of kindness are you planning to do this week? :) #pandoofoundation

Learning and playing happens within the four walls of our Pandoo Center and beyond...sometimes, they happen after a long climb, rain or shine. And they love it (most of the time). Do you love learning outdoors too? :) #pandoofoundation
