  5. 5. 5 Foreword Treading the CGSMS path is arduous that requires virtue and skills to make you go through it. I have a dream ; a big dream: to be an instrument that will awaken the eyes of every Narranian to support Girl Scouting Movement. I dream of becoming the first Narranian Senior Girl Scout to receive the Chief Girl Scout Medal. I want to be an inspiration to all my sisters in Girl Scouting in Narra, Palawan, to desire for greater goals like the CGSMS and show the people in my place that Girl Scouting is not just the wearing of green dress, attending camps, nor the enjoyment brought by the glory of the badges received. I dream of becoming a spark that will kindle the spirit of desire of every girl to desire to serve the community and be a catalysts for change. I have a plan to create a work group that would support candidates so that Narra can produce more CGSMS aspirants per year. I am praying for Gods’ guidance and blessings to accomplish these things I just keep inside. Long Live the Girl Scouting Movement!

  9. 9. 9 Introduction and Background The native tribe of the “Tagbanua’s who are now settled in the area near the sea, once lived uphill in the mountains of barangay Malinao. Their peace was shattered when rebel forces invaded their ancestral land. As a result the local government of Narra provided them a place to re-settle in order to resume to their normal family life in a place called Purok Pagkakaisa. The survey reveals that the area is composed of four clans, the Batacs, Diazes, Espinosas and the Ulosans, the people residing at the edges of the purok travels 2 kilometer just to fetch their drinking water. The residents fetch water from a single PALTUBIG (Palawan Tubig) water pump situated in a farmland in the area. It is the only water pump that produces safe drinking water. The other artesian well in the purok produces salty water which is used only for household cleaning while some water pumps are not drinkable according to the water testing result. The first plan was to install the electric water pump to the PALTUBIG, allowing the flow of fresh drinking water downwards with the use of PVC pipes to the sea edges. The plan was not materialized due to the fact that the PALTUBIG bears a cylinder. If an electric pump will be attached to the PALTUBIG, the well can not be used when electricity is not available. That action would cause another problem to the nearby houses that uses the water well for washing. After several deliberations, the barangay council and the residents decided that the water pump located in the residence of Mrs. Cristy Diaz, the purok day care worker shall be use instead.
  10. 10. 10 Project Description The project is called”WATER SOURCE INSTALLATION’ is inspired by the WAGGGS slogan “Girls Worldwide say “think about water.” It is designed to improve the Tagbanuas’ way of life by providing them easy access to safe drinking water. The project emerges from the desire of an ordinary Senior Girl Scout from Narra, Palawan to make a difference and to put Narra Senior Girl Scout movement in the map of Chief Girl Scout Medal Scheme history. The project has yielded attention as well as heighting public interest about CGSMS in the town of Narra.
  11. 11. 11 ProjectObjectives The major goal of the project Improve the quality of life of the Tagbanua’s by providing them easy access to safe drinking water. Supply clean water to the less fortunate people so they can live healthier and more productive lives. This will be accomplished through specific objectives as follows: 1. Bridge the gap that divides the modern citizens of Narra and the native Tagbanua tribe. 2. Awaken the overshadowed Bayanihan culture among the purok residents. 3. Educate the Tagbanuas on water sanitation and conservation. 4. Create awareness amongst the members of the community to practice a quarterly water testing to ensure water sanitation. 5. Encourage Girl Scouts to participate in community projects. 6. Raise community awareness amongst Narranian to appreciate the importantrole of scouting in molding the youth of today. 7. Spread the tidings that Girl Scouts can make a difference.
  12. 12. 12 Project Methodology: The candidate with the work group visits the project area every two weeks but visitation was done as need arises. Communication between the work group and the barangay council is always open through mobile texting and calls. Networking with various government offices, private individuals and local NGO’s such as Rotary Club of Narra, Interact Club and Lions Club was utilized to extend help to the Tagbanua Tribe of Purok Pagkaka-isa. Project Budget: The items incurred in the expenses: 1. Electric water pump 2. PVC pipes 3. Water tank 4. Foods during the Christmas party and giveaways to kids 5. Souvineers/T-shirts for the residents 6. Transportation Expenses
  13. 13. 13 I choose water project because WATER CHANGES EVERYTHING. A clean water project nearby means more than safe drinking water to women and children in Purok Pagkaka-isa, Malinao, Narra , Palawan; it means time, freedom and incentive to change their community. Supplying clean water to the less fortunate people means healthier and more productive lives. Unsafe water could kill people more than all forms of violence, including war.
  14. 14. 14 I am a Girl Scout with a big dream for humanity and I hope this project is a stepping stone for a bigger service to the Filipino society. Community Profile 1.)

  87. 87. 87 Libert Charisse Mabunga Lumba Palawan Council Too much of everything is dangerous Water swallowed the town of Narra, including my home and my area project at Purok Pagkaka- isa, Malinao. Water………..the focus area of my CGSMS project destroyed my hometown.
  88. 88. 88 Hand waves amidst the calamity Residents of my area project of Purok Pagkaka-isa, Malinao evacuated to the Ramon V. Mitra Gymnasium with the help of the military trucks. Women and children were the priority one. Visiting the purok is impossible.

  94. 94. 94 Service above self in real life Reaching the farthest end of Narra with the Rotary Club. Rotary Club of Narra President, Rtn. Jorge De La Torre calling the residents to gather for the bundles prepared for them.
  95. 95. 95 Bundles of joy for the native Tagbanua’s Rice and canned goods for the families victimized by the flood. It’s surprising to discover that in hardship the bayanihan spirit is still alive in the hearts of every people in my town. Looking at the men and women who served the masses that suffered during the flood…….thoughts flashed across my mind with printed loud letters that read………….they are boy and girl scouts during their younger years.
  96. 96. 96 This is MINE !!!!!!!!!!!! Rotarians are hands on in distributing food packs to the people; while on the far end I was assisting my father Rtn. Cris Lumba on listing and announcing the recipients. Walwalting, (a.k.a. MYRNA) as many people would call her in my town eagerly grabs the pack of food with fear that it might be taken by someone else’s. My mother and I always rove around the poblacion with her Kawasaki Fury, and one time we passed by Walwaltings’ home……………my heart bleed upon seeing where she lives. In my mind grew a desire that one of these days when things will be all right I shall seek people who could help me to give Myrna a descent house.
  97. 97. 97 A promise to keep Rtn. President Jorge De La Torre, swears to the community that this is not the end but instead this is only the start of showing that Rotary cares. During younger years I don’t understand what father is doing in the organizations he is in. All I know is that during Christmas time we would attend parties with influential people in our town and make friends with their wives and kids. Today at the age of 14 I totally understand, the awakening engulf my whole being that people like the Rotarians are not just there for socializing and friendship because behind their stature in society they are lending a hand to the needy.
  98. 98. 98 Spirit of sharing is in the air During these days when water was on hip level even in my own house, father , I and his friends from Rotary Club of Narra managed to help many people. I never thought that I could be a part in this kind of undertakings. While my brothers and cousins are busy fixing our flooded home, I was away helping others. Many rivers overflowed including the creek beside my home which all members of my family loved because it is a home of many species including the turtles, fish and otters that we loot during the night. .
  99. 99. 99 An ocean of frustration flooded my town
  100. 100. 100 Spreading the news about CGSMS in the town of Narra The Senior Girl Scouts of San Francisco Javier College and Panacan National High School, together with our titas, Tita Magz and Tita Sham, gathered at the Rotary Club of Narra clubhouse to hear the good news on what scouting opportunities we could possibly have in our lifetime. Tita Daisy Nalzaro, the Council Executive told us stories on international camps and the enjoyment meeting other cultures could bring. We meet new acquaintances and created new friendship through games and round songs. Tita Daisy oriented us about the Pilar Hidalgo, Magic Spot and the Chief Girl Scout Medal Scheme awards. She shared her experiences and inspiring anecdotes that made the Senior Girl Scouts of Narra livelier more than ever..

  103. 103. 103 For the past few months’ the power of nature almost devastated my spirit because there were a lot of things I need to accomplish yet hindrances’ targeted them down one by one like an arrow hitting an apple in Robin Hoods aim. The economic situation of my hometown decreased my chances of getting support from the local government unit of Narra due to the fact that they need to priorities financial releases due to the calamities happened. The situation seems so gloomy and the project is struggling in an ocean of problems. March 27, 2011, Saturday, we revisited the project area with the sun up high in the horizon. Back for good! The work group managed to re-visit again Purok Pagkaka-isa; we first made a courtesy to the purok president, Wilfredo Batac.
  104. 104. 104 Though things seem not that fine as expected when I started the project, I keep faith that God will lend His arms to help me. It was agreed that the water education session will be in the next week end in the 5th of April. Many kids were curious at our re-visitation that day. Happy together! Chattingwith KuyaWilfredo was fun, for healways assuresus that wearealways welcometo visit them.
  105. 105. 105 Slipper less Kids Bare footed kids that roams around the purok is an ordinary view at my project area. Then, I remember Balitang K’s gimmick on giving away slippers to little kids, wish I could do that too in the future.
  106. 106. 106 All journeys’ starts with a single step! In an earthly road of the Purok Pagkaka-isa, we made the start towards the unknown zone towards the edges of the place near the sea. We were led by a five-year old boy named Justine, who keep talking and nagging how slow poke we are.
  107. 107. 107 Two by two the Girl Scouts came We managed to gallop above the muddy paths of the purok to reach for the edges of the area. We might not conquer it that time but there is always a next time.
  108. 108. 108 Safety first, txt S.O.S! We need to get across a thinly made coco bridge in order to get the other side of the creek, it was a challenge but we laughingly managed to do it. Balancing was the solution.
  109. 109. 109 Upon a dried well Thirsty as we are but the well got no water in it.
  110. 110. 110 Who’s taller? Never seen an artesian well that tall before, only in the Philippines I think.
  111. 111. 111 Tiptoeing across the rice paddies! As we started to cross the rice fields the soil was hard and firm but as we were in the midst we discover that some of them are soft and freshly made. Our shoes were wet and soiled.
  112. 112. 112 Simplicity up-close! Houses like this one are scattered around the place.
  113. 113. 113 Refuge at last! Grasping our breath we took rest in the very first house we saw.
  114. 114. 114 Stop Look and Listen! Peeping on the steel pipe left undone.
  115. 115. 115 Let there be water! Inspecting the possibility of completing an unfinished business.
  116. 116. 116 How can we solve the problem like WATER! Chieftain Lorenzo Ulusan, told us that it would be beneficial for them if the unfinished business be completed. An hour of asking and answering with the Tagbanua chieftain filled that noontime. We’ve learned that this native folks doesn’t like neighbors who are not like them.
  117. 117. 117 “We are thirsty”! But where can we get drinking water? People here fetch water from the far upper part of the purok, so it’s a shameful thing to ask for water isn’t it?
  118. 118. 118 Even the dogs do welcome us Timid and shy the neighborhood kids pose with us for a shot and so with the dog.
  119. 119. 119 A square in a root Four Girl Scouts sitting on the roots of an old mango tree that provided us rest from a long and tedious walk. Where are the chairs?
  120. 120. 120 This is heavier than that maybe The Chieftain showed us some pieces of their culture.
  121. 121. 121 Sa Tabing Ilog We passed by little kids playing, swimming and shouting on the river.
  122. 122. 122 Let me see the camera Resting at the river bank waiting for the lunch.
  123. 123. 123 Laughing out loud with nature Playing with the kids of the area led us to realize how simple their lives are. Innocence, simplicity and simply a happy soul is what they got. They don’t care about leeches nor infections, they’re just are happy kids.

  127. 127. 127 April 1, 2011 Visit Examining facts and figures about my town and the project area at the Narra municipal hall tourism lobby My father was very busy during these days, for the month of March is graduation time. He represents the honorable mayor in many commencement exercises and he can never drove us to the project area for a week or more. .We were told that the yellow elf , a municipal government vehicle will be travelling to Aramaywan, a far flung barangay south and the vehicle will pass by my project area. We went to the municipal hall to wait for the driver. We were happy to visit the tourism lobby for we’ve read much information about my town as well as my project area barangay Malinao.
  128. 128. 128 April 1, 2011 Visit Free ride on a government vehicle towards Purok Pagkaka-isa-Malinao II, Narra,Palawan We climb up to the yellow elf and swisssssssshhhhhhhhh we go. The driver told us that he will just drop us at the corner of the purok because he is racing with time and missions for that day. He even enumerated several things he needs to accomplish that day. Upon reaching the kanto of the purok Pagkaka-isa we thank him for his kindness. Luckily a tricycle came and offered us a ride towards the innermost part of the purok. We chose to stop at the PALTUBIG to see how this source of water helps the people there.
  129. 129. 129 April 1, 2011 Visit Shy boy We met a little boy fetching water from the PALTUBIG and we tried our very best to be friendly so that he will talk with us, but he never did. He pretended not hearing our voices and just put his head downward in order not see our faces. We made jokes in tagalong to make sure he will respond but we seem talking to the walls.
  130. 130. 130 April 1, 2011 Visit Onward bound towards the project area Walking towards the houses was so hot for the sun was high that morning. We saw residents peeping on their windows and looking at us. We smiled to anyone we caught staring at us. The walk was full of fun and laughter for the Girl Scouts who were with me were jolly by nature especially the Panacan Girl Scouts who supported me in my quest for CGSMS. I promised to myself that if my task is over I will help Myla Oceo in return.
  131. 131. 131 April 1, 2011 Visit Tearful toddler along the way There were many people walking on the fields and on the rough road that we were trodding unto. There were bunch of kiddos on the road teasing with each other, when suddenly a little one cried at the top of her lungs. Maria managed to help the little one to ease her crying and Janine gently talked with the kid.
  132. 132. 132 April 1, 2011 Visit Fearsome shot with the mans’ beast of burden An aged carabao resting near the bushes along the road caught our attention and some of the girls requested to be pictured with this mighty creature. We found it hard enough to get near because fear ate our soul for its heart shaped horn shines with sharpness. The smell of the animal mixed with wet mud of the area conquered the atmosphere. Our fear was covered with laughter with funny gyrations from the girls.
  133. 133. 133 April 1, 2011 Visit Someone had died and they need help Descending down the river was difficult suddenly we were stopped by a man calling on us and informed us that someone had died in the purok. We followed the man into a little shack with several people eating lunch at its porch. I noticed some of them were fixing a little white coffin made from a very ordinary wood. We’ve learned that a six-month little angel died the previous day due to DIARRHEA. Am I too late?
  134. 134. 134 April 1, 2011 Visit Ask and you shall be fed Lunch time came and we decided to eat our lunch along the river together with the kids of the area. We shared our food with each other and even to the little ones of the area. A kid told us that the last meal they got was not that good and their viand was just sautéed young papaya, which tastes awful. Since our baon was nice lookin’ to their eyes and seemed enticed their taste buds, mother told me to fed the kids. Luckily we brought two sets of viand enough for all of us.
  135. 135. 135 April 1, 2011 Visit Water Education for Kids After lunch we chatted, laughed and threw jokes that made us burst into happiness that cause us to forget the death of an angel in the area for sometime. We showed and introduced the laptop to the kids who happened to see a computer for the first time. Videos about the IMPORTANCE OF WATER, WATER CYCLE and USES OF WATER were played for the children to comprehend the value of our project in their area.
  136. 136. 136 April 1, 2011 Visit Water Education for Kids After playing the video for the 3rd time we threw questions to the kids who happened to answer it right away smartly in there own way. They requested to play the video again and again but we do it with intervals of questioning. The kids were amazed and even asked us to bring more videos for them to see next time we visit.

Barangay Malinao foundation day kept them occupied and I can not blame them for it is an annual celebration that became a tradition for so many years now. Meanwhile, I was able to convince my father to visit the busy barangay captain to make a schedule for the erection of the water pump. Hon. Tess Cabanag told us that she will be free on the 26th of the month. She assigned Kagawad Gideon Vicente to assist me on the undertakings and preparations needed to be accomplished before the erection. That day we went to the project area with the barangay officials.

  178. 178. 178 I was so nervous but happy. Nervous because I am going to talk with the evaluators and I am not sure if I can answer their questions well enough on the other hand happy because the 8 month old project is now serving the people of Purok Pagkaka-isa.
  179. 179. 179 The community and members of the Confederation of Senior Girl Scouts of Narra District came to support my project. The group was created by Tita Sham Lumba together with Tita Candi Impig, and Tita Bebot Ramos to become the support group for those who would work for the CGSMS. Luckily I was the first one to work for the medal. The group will be helping 3 Girl Scouts next year who will aspire for the CGSMS.
  180. 180. 180 Tita Norma Valencia, Tita Tess Macial, Tita Flor Mante and Tita Daisy Nalzaro came . Tita Flor Mante is a family to us and I couldn’t allow this accomplishment be celebrated without her. She was my Tita- Nanay in church camps nor in GSP camps since when I was 7 years old. She’s my Sunday school teacher too in the Baptist church where we are attending worships. Though my mother during that time doesn’t want me to attend campings because I am too young to be away from home and since I am the only daughter she could not sleep at night with me in our home. Upon learning that Tita Flor will be my nanay in the GSP camp
  181. 181. 181 Tita Norma Valencia and Tita Tess Marcial bombarded me with questions. Though I was nervous, I am confident that I could answer them because everything about my CGSMS project happened upon my very eye and consciousness.

It is a special token. Indeed.

  209. 209. 209 Collecting water sample Water sample before chlorination
  210. 210. 210 Water sample after chlorination The water testing request dated June 2, 2011 yeilded a negative result that go signals the erection ang connection of the water pump that will distribute safe drinking water downwards the area near the sea.
  211. 211. 211 Outcome of the Project: The project started with a survey on the households of Purok Pagkakaisa, Malinao Narra, Palawan; with the participation of the Senior Girl Scouts of Troop 767 of Panacan National High School and San Francisco Javier Troop 832. Through the survey we found out the top three needs of the Purok; third is the road condition, second the electricity, and number one problem is water. The following are the reasons why Purok Pagkakaisa has limited source of safe drinking water: 1. Poverty  Almost everyone on the Purok is unemployed; only few of them has a job better call it an irregular job. It is hard for them to make money to provide the needs of their families including safe water source. Chlorination was conducted and yielded a safe drinking water for the Tagbanua families.
  212. 212. 212  Some of the elders haven’t got a chance to study, some of them reached elementary/high school only. With their lack of proper education they find it hard to find a regular well-paying job.  Since they find it hard to find a well-paying job, they cannot handle the high cost of living. They often have no spare income for their expenses whether it is for emergency or not. Some of them only rely on their tribe’s 1% share from mining. 2. Instead of using the money they get from the mining company to provide what their tribe needs, they used the money to buy cellular phones for their enjoyment. They also bought three motorcycles to be used as the tribes service whenever they need to go to Poblacion, the sad thing is that the ones who were assigned to take care of the motorcycles won’t let others to ride on it they only use it for their own. 3. Families have no knowledge about family planning. Families have many children which resulted into more financial problems. They couldn’t provide what their children needs; they couldn’t spare enough money to put up a safe water source. 4. Parents have no knowledge on how important clean water is. It’s alright with them even if their child is bathing on the river with a carabao. 5. The Purok is located near the ocean. So even if they put up lots and lots of pumps over and over again they can’t use the pump because of the salty water it produces.
  213. 213. 213 Weekly visitations were done by the applicant with help from some co-Senior Girl Scouts. Water education is being done by the applicant to the children and the elderly of Purok Pagkakaisa, Malinao, Narra, Palawan. All of the elderly men and household heads of the Purok helped on putting up the tank, they were all thankful because they don’t need anymore to walk long distance to fetch safe drinking water. It has been a very tough job but every time I see the smiles that my project has cost it was all worth it. Project Impact to the Recipients 1. It lessens the distance the Tagbanuas need to walk just to get drinking water. 2. The children learned the different uses and how important clean water is. 3. Through chlorination, now the Tagbanuas have fresh and clean drinking water. 4. Families realized the value of water and learned how to use water wisely. 5. The families learned the importance of clean water.
  214. 214. 214 6. The families learned how to disinfect the water that they drink. 7. The community appreciated Girl Scouting more than before. Impact to the Aspirant I learned a lot of things from the CGSMS experience: 1. I become more confident on when dealing with fellow man especially the indigent people. 2. I become friendly to many people regardless of their color and social status. 3. I learned to manage my time especially during school days. 4. I learned to control my temper. 5. I learned to adjust to the attitudes of newly known people. 6. I learned to be contented of what I have. 7. It made me want to help others who are in need.
  215. 215. 215 8. I learned to be patient every time I need to talk to the barangay official of barangay Malinao and Poblacion, officials of DSWD and to the Sanitary inspectors. 9. I learned to thank God more for guiding me and for giving me supportive parents. 10. I realized that what I’m doing isn’t all about the award that I’m going to have instead I realized that it’s all about helping those who are in need. 11. The exposure with the indigent people made me decide to serve the masses through my leadership in the Interact Club of Narra. Recommendations: 1. The barangay officials should regularly monitor the condition of the water pump machine and the quality of water it produces. 2. A quarterly chlorination shall be conducted to insure the safeness of the water consumed by the residents.
  216. 216. 216 3. I recommend the continuance of Girl Scout project and CGSMS in the area to address the other needs of the people. Financial

  239. 239. 239 CGSMS Experience Synthesis A Record of thoughts and actions Experience Synthesis 1:
  240. 240. 240 How do I apply the learning’s gained from your spiritual readings in my project? Treading the CGSMS path is arduous that requires virtue and skills to make you go through it. There were lot of challenges you have to overcome, but reading God’s word and with God’s guidance the load becomes lighter for He gave me the strength to get through all the hardships. I have a dream ; a big dream: to be an instrument of the almighty. His words were “whatever you do to the least of my brethren, you do it unto Me.” This is the challenge I took upon myself. Though over whelming I’ll just take the steps in my small way to do the task. I dream also of becoming the first Narranian Senior Girl Scout to be on the Malacanang palace to receive the CGSMS Medal and be an inspiration to all my sisters in Girl Scouting in my hometown: I dream of becoming a spark that will kindle the spirit of desire to be included in the lists of CGSMS awardees. To make my dreams come true, there are lot of things to be done and lot of things to get through. Every day we are experiencing lot of trials, the trials that may make us feel weak, feel hopeless, but we must always remember that even though we are completely laden and hopeless, God is always there to help us. We should always remember to pray and ask for God’s guidance. Through reading God’s word we strengthen our faith, soul and body. Faith is our weapon against life’s hardships and problems along the way. The problems that we experience are factors that may make us stronger if you will use positivity. We must always remember that Lord our God is always there for us, whenever we need help
  241. 241. 241 we could just pray and read the Bible. As we grow up, we face more and more choices in our world of difficulties make us ask what should I do? Our Christian faith gives the answer “Follow Christ”, we all know that God loves us, He will do nothing that will harm us. Sometimes He gives us problems but it’s only for us to become tougher and stronger. Whenever we feel alone, we must always remember that no one is alone; God is always there beside us, even though we cannot see Him we can feel His love and care for us. Whenever we need help, just pray and God will be there to help us. With God on our side, who can be against us? Records of thoughts and actions 09/30/10 We visited the Municipal Development and Social Welfare Office for the CGSMS project Ms. Elizabeth Cubillas suggested many options but Malinao 2 was chosen. We visited Baranggay Captain Tess Cabanag and she positively reacted to the project proposal. We visited Sr. Marilyn Cula A.R., who favorably supported the CGSMS dream.
  242. 242. 242 10/01/10 I together with my mom went to Panacan National High School to meet up with my co-Senior Girl Scouts who would support me on my project. The group was so jolly even though we are new to each other; they made me comfortable with them. After the meet up, my Mom and I went to barangay Malinao to gather data’s for the community profile, but the data’s weren’t ready yet. We had our meeting with the barangay kagawads about my project on their area and they accepted my project. 10/02/10 Survey day! All of us were so excited, even though the weather isn’t on our side it doesn’t stopped us to have our survey. All of us were clueless of what will happen to us that day, the water is on our knee level because of the strong rain. All of us were hungry and very tired. Even though all of us were all hungry and tired all of us still enjoyed. 10/03/10 The Tribal Council gathered in the area chapel to conduct consultation among the tribal chief and it’s kagawads regarding the acceptance of the Tagbanuas on the CGSMS proposed project. I met the Tribe Leaders and decided to gather next Saturday at 2:00 pm with more Tagbanuas people attending.
  243. 243. 243 We returned home almost dark with high hopes for the next gathering success. This day we gathered the complete date for the community profile and worked during the night in preparation for GSP council visit the next day. 10/09/10 The Tribal Council together with the Barangay officials and other fellow Tagbanuas gathered at the house of Mr. Wilfredo Batac. The Tagbanuas welcomed us warmly as I propose my project for the CGSMS. Together with my co-scouts, Senior Girl Scout Sophia Gayoso and Senior Girl Scout Jennifer Balba, we met the Tagbanuas and oriented them what is our purpose on their purok. At the end of the day all of them were so thankful that I’ve chosen their purok tobe project area. Though it was rainy the meeting ended successfully. 12/15/10 Today I and my mom went to Ms. Adelaida Vega, the sanitary inspector,to ask help and suggestions for my project. She told us the things we should consider on putting up water pumps. She said that I could discuss to the Tagbanuas about SODIS or the Solar Disinfection, SODIS is supposed to disinfect our drinking water. Though it was a tiring day it’s all worth it.
  244. 244. 244 2/21/10 A,M. My Mom and I went to Capt. Tess Cabanag to plan on the Launching Program of my project. Capt.Cabanag suggested that I could give gifts for the children. After visiting Capt. Cabanag we went straight to the market to purchase what we are going to give the Tagbanuas. We found some dolls and bought some to give the young girls. We retured home almost dark with high hopes that the event would be successful. P.M. Today is the original day which my launching program must be held, but because of the weather it was postponed and been moved on December 28. Depressing but still thankful. 12/25/10 I and my cousin searched for someone who could print some shirts with the logo of my project “water source installation”. 12/27/10 Today I went to Hon. Kgwd. Mameng Murillo to follow up my request for some chairs and tents for tomorrows activity.
  245. 245. 245 My mom and I went to Mrs. Cabanag to ask her suggestions for the Launching Program. After chatting with her, we went straight to the market to buy the foods and drinks we are going to serve the Tagbanuas We also visited my co-Girl Scouts to remind them about the Launching Program the next day. At night, I together with my brothers repacked all the goods we bought for tomorrows Launching Program. It was a very tiring day but it was all worth it. 12/28/10
  246. 246. 246 This is it, the big day! I woke up early as I get ready for the Launching Program of my project “water source installation” for the Tagbanuas of Purok Pagkakaisa, Malinao II, Narra, Palawan. After dressing up I went straight to my school to meet up with Tita Julie Rodriguez and Tita Delia Caabay and with my co-Senior Girl Scouts. Even though it was raining hard the show must go on. When the vehicle arrived we went straight to the area of the launching program. The program started with an opening song led by the Senior Girl Scout of SFJC. After the program we gave snacks for the Tagbanuas. We also gave dolls to the girls. We also gave souvenir shirts to the elderly. It was a very tiring day but after seeing the joy that we had caused the Tagbanuas made me more eager and inspired to fulfill my project. January
  247. 247. 247 This month I was scheduled to teach the Tagbanuas water education as a part of the implementation of my project. But heavy rainfalls which persisted for several days that resulted to massive flood hindered the plan. Many roads were destroyed in Narra specially the roads leading to Malinao. Many families from the barangay evacuated to the Poblacion’s Ramon V. Mitra Gymnasium. Their homes were overflowed with the flood and also their plants and domestic animals died. For the days of their stay in the gymnasium I frequently visit them together with my father. We gave away the shirts which were left when I launched my CGSMS project and luckily mother had save many shirts maybe in Gods will never known before to be given away for the poor evacuees.. The Rotary Club of Narra, Rotary International and the Rotary Club of Puerto Princessa donated goods for the affected families. On the second day there, I helped in the repacking for the distribution to the people on the gym which includes families from Panacan II and Malinao II. The repacked bags contain 5 kilos of rice, 5 cans of sardines, 6 packs of noodles and some dried fish.

  249. 249. 249 I woke up early, excited for today’s activity. Today is the visitation on my project area. Because of the damages the strong rain had left, it’s been a while since the last time we visited Malinao II. Mom, Dad and I, went to Panacan National High School to pick up my fellow Girl Scouts who will accompany me for the visitation. When we arrived on Malinao II, we went straight to the house of the Purok President, Mr. Wilfredo Batac. He gave us a warm welcome at his home. I apologized for the delay of my visitation, after having a talk with Kuya Wilfredo, we asked him to allow us to roam around his territory. We found it hard to find the way to the tribal chieftain’s house, because honestly we really don’t know the right way. While finding our way we encountered Kuya Wilfredo’s grandson Justin. Justin is a very naughty boy. We asked him if he could show us the way to the chief’s house and he granted our favor. Justin made us walk and walk for almost an hour; he even made us walk through muddy rice fields. Then one of my fellow Scout asked,”baka naman di na kami makauwi?”, and then he answered, “di ko talaga kayo papauwiin”. Fear ran through my nerves, what if this kid is only fooling us, what if he really doesn’t know where we are heading to. While
  250. 250. 250 walking I asked a woman if she knows where is Chief Lorenzo Ulosan’s house. When we arrived at Chief Lorenzo’s house we caught him fixing his boat. While having a talk with Chief, he showed us an unfinished water pump; he said that the pump was never finished because of the salty water coming out of it. He said that my project would make a big difference on their everyday lives. Imagine, they need to climb up to the PALTUBIG everyday just to have water for drinking, etc. after having a short talk with Chief, he showed us some of their tribes musical instruments, it’s nice to know their tribe has preserved their culture for a long time. Chief Ulosan’s grandson showed us a shorter way to Kuya Wilfredo’s house. A felt a bit anger on Justin, imagine he made us walk for almost an hour even though he knew that there is a shorter way, but I couldn’t get angry on him, his only a little boy. On our way we passed by a river. There, we sat and took our lunch. It’s fun to watch the children having fun, swimming on the river, there were even little girls washing their clothes on the river, and The sad part is that the river was very dirty. After eating we gave the children some of our food. We continued our walk to Kuya Wilfredo’s house. On the way, I gave Justin water on a 1.5 container, then Justin asked, “akin nalang ‘to te?”, I said yes, “siguro ate
  251. 251. 251 April 1, 2011 mayaman kayo nho?”,I asked him why did he say so, “kasi ate binibigay mo lang tong tubig sabay diba tong lalagyan mo, lalagyan diba to ng sprite”,”di ahh coke yan sya”. At that moment I realized how important water is for them. I realized that my project would be a great help to them. My mom gave Justin a five peso coin, as a sign of our gratitude to him. I gave Justin the soft drink I was keeping on my back pack. “ate kaw nalang magdala nito, baka sabihin nila gingnakaw ko to sa inyo”. I felt pity on that little boy. I can’t imagine how hard his life is. I brought Justin home. When my father arrived we waved good bye to the Batac family. On our way, we passed through some Tagbanua, they said they were heading to the Barangay Hall to have their synchronized meeting. We offered them a ride to the Hall. When we arrived there, Kapitan Tess was there, we left the Tagbanua’s and waved good bye to the citizens of Malinao II. When we arrived on Poblacion we made a stop into an old play ground, my brothers and I used to play there when we were still little kids. My mom said that, that park would be their troop’s project for the Magic Spot. We’ve planned the things that we’ll do to improve the park. After having the meeting we went straight to our homes.

  252. 252. 252 April 1, 2011- Cont. It was almost 8 o’clock when I woke up. I rushed to fix myself. I texted some of the Girl Scouts from SFJC, but only Bahamma and Shaira confirmed to accompany me for today’s visitation. My mom texted the Girl Scouts from her troop to join for today’s visitation. My dad called some of his friends to borrow a vehicle for us, but all of them were busy. I went to Bahamas’ house to pick her and Shaira up. When I arrived there Bahamma said that she thought that we already went off with out them. Shaira, Baham and I, recruited a tricycle towards the Municipal Hall. We waited there for a awhile. While we were waiting, we looked at the map of Narra, there we saw the different Barangay’s of Narra including Malinao II. My dad came, he said that we could ride on the municipal vehicle, but it’s not supposed to bring us on Malinao II, instead he’s only going to drop us on the high way, because the vehicle is going to Barangay Aramaywan. While we were on the gasoline station the Girl Scouts of Panacan arrived. When we arrived on Malinao, the driver dropped us, we waited for a tricycle to take us on Purok Pagkakaisa. When we arrived there we saw Justine with some of his friends, while they were walking, one of his friend lose her balance and hit the ground, the girl started to cry. Janine, one of the Girl Scout from Panacan, helped her to stand
  253. 253. 253 April 1, 2011- Cont. up, the girl kept on crying and walked away with her older brother. When we arrived at Kuya Wilfredo’s house we caught him talking with Chief Ulosan. We asked for Kuya Wilfredo if he could allow us to teach the children about the importance of water. Justine came and he was together with his little cute friend named Ron-ron. When my mom and the other Girl scouts arrived, we went to the house of Ma’am Deig, a teacher of Panacan National High School. While we were on our way we encountered a carabao. When we arrived on ma’am Deig’s house I realized that even though she is professional her life is not different from the other natives. After having a chat with Ma’am Deig, we continued walking towards the river; there we will have our class. I asked my mom if I could pick up Justine and some of his friends. When we were near Justine, he said “hihiramin niyo nanaman ako?” I chuckled and said yes. I asked Justine if he could make his friends to join us, but everyone were very shy. One of the natives brought us to a little house, inside the house, there were men making a small coffin. They said that a six months old baby died because of diarrhea. I realized that maybe because they were lack of clean drinking water is the reason why the baby
  254. 254. 254 died, I hope my project would be finished sooner so they’ll have clean water. My mom gave money to the family of the baby. After we visited the baby, we continued our walk towards the river. It was almost 12 o’clock when we arrived there, it was already lunch time. We sat on the side of the river, there we ate our lunch. While we were eating I saw a girl starring at us, I called her and told her to take a seat. I gave Reslie, the little girl, and Justine quail eggs. After I finished eating, I fed Justine and Reslie. Justine said that he haven’t had breakfast yet and he only ate adobong papaya for dinner last night. After the two kids finished eating, we taught them to write there names, Reslie did well while Justine had some difficulties. After writing, I let the two kids watch a video about the adventures of water boy. There were much focused on watching, when the video ended I asked them what they saw on the video, both of them were active in answering my questions. After teaching them we sat and took a rest for a while, and then we started to walk again. We sat under the Sampaloc tree and ate ice candy. When we finished eating I took Justine home, then we said good bye to the Batac Family. Since there were no visible tricycles on the Purok, we walked towards the High Way. We were almost at the High Way when a tricycle came. When we arrived in Poblacion we ate ice cream on one of the stores on the market. After eating and having a chat with each other, we waved good bye to each other. We arrived home very tired and exhausted, but I’m still thankful that this day. Dimples Experiences Synthesis 3
