A Thank You Message From Charlene Inao, PAMAG Scholar in the Be My Lab Partner Program

Charlene Inao graduated July 31, 2022 from UP Diliman with a degree in BS Chemistry program with Honors (Cum Laude). Here’s her message:

Studying during a pandemic was not easy. There were several adjustments I had to make given my circumstances, but I was fortunate enough to have the Philippine American Medical Association of Georgia’s support as I transitioned to remote learning back in 2020 until I finished my degree this year. It would have been a heavier struggle for me to complete my college education on time if it weren’t for their active assistance in giving me a better learning environment despite the online set-up. Through their help, I am now a BS Chemistry degree holder. With this education, I wish to work as a chemist in the industry and contribute to the advancement of science in the Philippines especially now that it is most needed.

Again, thank you very much for your support. I will always be grateful to your organization.

PAMAG Donation of Books and Used Clothes to Kal-Anan Elementary School

Ms. Rowena Dungog, Principal of Kal-Anan Elementary School in Tabogon, Cebu received the donation of children’s books and used clothes for the school as part of PAMAG’s Books for the Barrios program. This was made possible by the generosity of Dr. Arlene Dijamco and family and Atlas Balikbayan Shipping. 

Kal-Anan Elementary school was one of the original recipients of a school building with two classrooms after the devastation of Typhoon Yolanda in 2013. After that, PAMAG had continued their support with books, school supplies, used clothing through PAMAG’s Books for the Barrios Program. With the Covid pandemic forcing schools into remote lessons, PAMAG continued their support of the school with more school supplies and printers for the school. Hopefully, with the continued support of PAMAG, the school children will enjoy learning by reading and the teachers will also benefit from our donations.

PAMAG & RCUD GIFTS TO THE COASTAL COMMUNITY OF DAGUPAN CITY

The Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan and PAMAG brought compassion to the scavengers in Bonuan Gueset.  They are referred as “manga-ngalakal” in Filipino vernacular. They collect discarded plastics, bottles, papers, and metals and sell these recyclable materials. Bonuan Gueset is located in the coastal area of Dagupan City. These low-income families are vital to the collection of said recyclable materials in the coastal area and it is their primary source of income. Previous projects awarded five “manga-ngalakal” tri-bikes donated by the club through the Rotary District grant as a livelihood enabler to help them become more effective at collecting recyclable materials which translates to a DIRECT POSITIVE IMPACT AT CONSERVING THE ENVIRONMENT

In addition, PAMAG in memory of its Past President Dr. Victor Bautista, and RC Uptown Dagupan distributed 20 grocery packs to these families last June 29, 2022.  The grocery packs contained rice, noodles, milk, loaf of bread with spread, canned goods, coffee biscuits, and multivitamins for children. We hope that these food packs bring some immediate relief to their families and that future projects can help improve their livelihood.

PAMAG & RCUD SUPPORT TO THE NANTANGALAN SPECIAL EDUCATION CENTER

The Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan and PAMAG undertook a special project in response to a plea from Ms. Rosita Fernandez, the coordinator of Nantangalan Special Education Center, an elementary public school for special children in Pozorrubio, Pangasinan.  She was very concerned because these pupils often come to school hungry, pale and weak.  These pupils are non-verbal and have mental, intellectual or developmental disabilities.  Thirty-eight pupils attend the class while two special cases are home-based and visited by a teacher.  

In response to the request for assistance to meet the students basic needs, PAMAG and the Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan distributed 40 packs with 2kilos of Rice, Milk packs, Noodles, Canned-goods, loaf bread and cheese spread and multivitamins.  The club members also provided some entertainment and snacks, as well as further assessment of their condition to plan the next nutrition program in the coming months. 

 We believe that people with disabilities need health care and health programs for the same reasons anyone else does-to stay well, active, and a part of the community. 

As one of their teachers said, ”They need our understanding, not our pity. They need to feel like they are part of our community.”

PAMAG & RCUD2000: INSPIRING THE YOUTH

“THE YOUTH IS THE HOPE OF THE MOTHERLAND”, said our Philippine national hero Dr. Jose Rizal. This means that the youth have the power to shape our nation’s future. We consider the youth as our nation’s hope for transformation, and that they are going to take the leap. That is why, on the last day of this school year, the Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan 2000 and the Philippine American Association of Georgia (PAMAG) conducted empowerment and feeding activities for the youth’s potential as servant leaders of tomorrow. The RCUD2000 members gave brief insights on Rotary and PAMAG, and introduced to them our organizations being at the forefront of creating lasting change across the globe and in our communities.May this youth service activity INSPIRE them to join such youth organizations in the future, to maximize productivity and mold them to become servant leaders of our nation.

We celebrate the PHILIPPINES INDEPENDENCE DAY (June 12) today and the heroic deeds of our past leaders in shaping our nation and look towards the future leaders of our nation as well.

The beneficiaries are 3 classrooms of 48 kinder pupils of the Canaoalan Elementary School, Binmaley, Pangasinan. The principal also received a gallon of alcohol, doxycycline for this rainy season which causes flood-borne diseases.

PAMAG & RCUD: HOPE ON WHEELS FOR POPSICLE VENDOR

PAMAG and Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan has chosen Salvador Tambogon, a 61 year old ambulant popsicle vendor as its latest recipient of its “Pangkabuhayan Tribike”. Day-by-day with a heavy load full of ice buko popsicles, he carried the weight of his styrofoam carrier, the source of livelihood on his back. However, walking on his regular route, he barely sells enough to get by on the short distances he can cover on foot. Today, PAMAG and Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan stepped in to make a lasting difference by choosing him as another recipient of its “Pangkabuhayan Tribike” livelihood project. He has no family and resides in Manaoag, Pangasinan. He is grateful to PAMAG and RCUD for the tribike that will make each day easier and his life better.
