ISM Papaya Partnership

Published on

This PowerPoint Presentation was presented by me to participants at the 2008 EARCOS Workshops in Kuala Lumpur, Malayasia. It gives a brief overview of a partnership I set up between students at International School Manila and Papaya Academy, a school for children who live on Manila's largest rubbish tip.

  43. 49. A hands-on brainstorming activity which tunes in to the concept of sustainability Participant Learning
  44. 50. <ul><li>Partnering with Gawad Kalinga </li></ul><ul><li>GK is taking action against poverty in the Philippines. </li></ul><ul><li>GK transforms communities by providing education, livelihood training, healthcare & housing. </li></ul><ul><li>GK does not provide charity; they empower communities to help themselves. </li></ul><ul><li>GK enables ISM to offer a long-term, sustainable, focused and well-integrated SL program based on relationships with the local community. </li></ul>Phase 1: Building Homes
  45. 51. <ul><li>Partnering with Gawad Kalinga </li></ul><ul><li>The coming months will be inspiring as the former squatter area is transformed into a vibrant, thriving and sustainable community. </li></ul><ul><li>There will be schooling for children, livelihood training for young adults, and healthcare for all. </li></ul><ul><li>There can be classrooms for dance, art, music and English where ISM students interact with local children on an ongoing and long-term basis. </li></ul><ul><li>Our sports teams could run coaching clinics and eventually develop basketball and badminton leagues for the GK children. </li></ul>Phase 2: building classrooms
  46. 52. <ul><li>Partnering with Gawad Kalinga </li></ul><ul><li>We are not there yet, and to succeed we need a shift of mindset: </li></ul><ul><li>Service Learning ≠ Volunteerism </li></ul><ul><li>“ Acting for Positive Change” & “ Learning to care” are essential learning outcomes that must be cultivated. It is wishful thinking to believe that these life skills will develop without a push. </li></ul><ul><li>We need to ensure that all students get involved if we truly want to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>provide a meaningful and sustainable service to the greater community and, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>develop genuine empathy in ‘most’ of our students that they choose to act upon. </li></ul></ul>Phase 3: student involvement
  47. 53. Choosing to Help Is an important choice to make “I learned the value of a peso…one boy loved the salt we had. I asked him why, and he told me that his family can't afford to buy it. I couldn't believe it, salt is just a few pesos for a big bag of it. Wow!” Grade 12 student.
