Progressive Assistance Canada Charity (PAC) is a Canadian-based Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) operating in the Philippines, seeking to alleviate the cycle of poverty in the most vulnerable and disenfranchised Filipino Barangays (communities). Addressing the root causes of the cycle of poverty, our programs are based on holistic systems-based approaches towards sustainable development.
We have 2 programs that focus on education. Knowledge is Wealth Scholarship Sponsorship Program (KW Scholars) helps provide the students with gadgets and mobile data load for their online classes during the pandemic. Play And Catch-up (PCU) is a weekly fun and learning session with the kids. Currently, this is still done virtually, but pre-pandemic, it was done onsite.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
We’re looking for long-term, committed volunteers to help us in the implementation of these programs.
We need volunteers who can be responsible for at least one of the following:
Weekly sending of mobile prepaid load to the scholars
Weekly management of resources/volunteers schedule for the weekly PCU, ensuring there are available materials and volunteers for the upcoming session.
Weekly monitoring of the scholars’ attendance in PCU and reaching out to them when needed.
Monthly/Quarterly collection and maintenance of scholars’ requirements and information.
Optional - can volunteer as teachers, moderators, and/or module writers for PCU.
It would be very helpful if the volunteers also have the ability to visit the community at Brgy 128, Tondo, Manila once in a while.
More details will be shared during the orientation on July 30.
