Stand Up for Life
Thursday, December 5, 2013
THE Kindasan Lions Club joined in the nationwide celebration of Bonifacio Day by empowering women in Baguio City through a worthy livelihood training program.
It was a day to remember for the twelve women chosen as beneficiaries for the training as they brought home not just fun memories of meeting and baking with the Lions but also new learning that will help them earn extra income this yuletide season.
One of the bakers of a popular bread and cake house in the city named Ben gladly taught the women how to make the all time favorite recipes such as donuts, long john, and cream filled rolls cooked in deep fried.
Kindasan Lions President Sonia Daoas said the three major homemade recipes learned by the women will help them start a low cost business and earn this Christmas which will help augment their income.
All the expenses for the said endeavor like the ingredients were shouldered by the club while the participants who expressed their desire to learn baking and were chosen through a recommendation by the barangay officials contributed P100.00 each as their counterpart.
Immediately a certificate was awarded to the participants right after the baking activity done from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Daoas' residence along Magsaysay Avenue.
Empowering women through baking means improving lives through business enterprise. Baking also brings out ones creativity and at the same time improves ones personality.
The Livelihood training for women has been a regular project/program of kindasan Lions. The group intends to continue the program to help improved the lives of the underprivileged and unemployed.
May the women who joined in the said livelihood training use the knowledge learned in starting a business that will give them better opportunities in life.
Meanwhile, Kindasan Lions is set to give an early Christmas gifts to 70 persons with disabilities from HOPE Foundationtomorrow morning Saturday, at the CRC Hall, Bishop's House with Dr. Dorai Ngolob as the coordinator.
The group is also preparing for another gift giving activity in partnership with DZBS/RPN 9 on December 22 with veteran broadcast journalist Malou Pascual and Dr. Miriam Janeo as coordinators. Dubbed “Share a Toy this Christmas” 50 kids of solo parents will be given toys and goodies.
Christmas will not also be the same for Kindasan without celebrating the occasion with the kids and women. A reason why they are also joining DZBS/RPN9 on December 24, 10:00 am at Malcolm Square for the Noche Buena Para Sa Pamilya project with 50 solo parents as the beneficiaries.
