Count Me In !

  1. 1. Count Me In!<br />Awareness Campaign<br />(Elsie Gaches Village Day Trip)<br />
  2. 2. Across the road from a posh shopping center in Alabang, Muntinlupa is a small <br />community whose residents can NEVER go to the mall. Tucked away behind<br /> the high concrete fences of Elsie Gaches Village (EGV), they live out their lives<br /> away from society, which has cast them out for being mentally handicapped.<br /> <br />In the Philippines, mentally challenged persons suffer the stigma of being <br />outcasts because of their condition. The stereotype of the mentally challenged<br /> family member locked up in a dark room is a stark reality, the families<br /> hiding them out of shame. Those who can go out of the house are mocked by <br />unsympathetic neighbours.<br />"Because of their condition, some people forget that these children are humans. <br />They’ve lived in horrible conditions. Some of them were abandoned by their <br />families,“(excerpt Manila Bulletin - May 16, 2004)<br />Jing De Luna - January 2011<br />
  3. 3. The HSBC ONQ Purpose<br />To create an awareness about The Elsie Gaches Village.<br />To learn about the history, the purpose & goals of this Charitable Institution.<br />To encourage co-workers to know more about the beneficiaries & employees under this Institution.<br />To make co-workers understand the reality of life outside of their comfort zone through this experience.<br />Jing De Luna - January 2011<br />
  4. 4. Desired Outcome<br />At the end of the visit we would like following results:<br />Co-workers know the history & goals of the Elsie Gaches Village.<br />To remember a story or important information about a beneficiary or employee of the Institution.<br />Jing De Luna - January 2011<br />
  5. 5. The Elsie Gaches Village was established February 3,1964.This centre is under the Department of Social Welfare.<br />It is the ONLY residential care facility in the country for a special group of clientele.<br />Jing De Luna - January 2011<br />
  6. 6. The government received 16 hectares of land from the late American couple Samuel and Elsie Gaches.<br />The couple, having NO children of their own, lovingly donated this property to take care of special, mentally challenged, underprivileged group of children during the 60’s<br />Jing De Luna - January 2011<br />
  7. 7. On January 29, 2011 the HSBC ONQ team came to Elsie Gaches Village for the 1st time.<br />Everybody woke up early and we brought in our small donation for the foundation.<br />Jing De Luna - January 2011<br />
