OUTREACH MINDANAO

Please call 633 7442 or Gina A. Alfonso at 0917 8924011 for more details on the following:

Sitio Abel Pre-School. Cartwheel is currently looking for sponsors who would be interested in the printing of the pupils’ uniform t-shirts.
Sta. Teresita Pre-School Playground. How would you like to lend a hand in the construction of a playground for Sta. Teresita Pre-school in Miarayon? Project “Let’s Build a Playground,” scheduled in the summer of 2003, will allow you to meet the Tala-andig tribe of Miarayon. You may also want to donate anything that would be of use for the playground such as construction materials, used swings or seesaw, etc.
Summer Football Clinic. We’re also planning a Summer Football Clinic with the children of Miarayon and Sitio Abel. Anyone interested in joining this activity in April 2003 is welcome to assist us with planning, logistics, teaching, etc.
Feeding Program and Medical Mission. Cartwheel welcomes your food and medicine donations for Miarayon. Volunteers are also invited to the next medical mission in March 2003.
Community Library.
Wanting to get rid of your old books, magazines and other reading materials? Let Cartwheel collect these from your homes and send them to Miarayon’s Community Library which benefits not only the children but also the adults in the area. The Library supports Cartwheel’s Adult Literacy Program which is funded by Ford Foundation. Mark Brazil, a former Jesuit volunteer, recently joined Cartwheel Malaybalay and now heads the program. To Mark, welcome to the Cartwheel family!
Fundraising Efforts of Cartwheel Scholars. Our high school and college scholars in Malaybalay are coming up with native accessories such as necklaces and bracelets to raise funds for their food allowance. (Their scholarship covers only their tuition, uniform and books.) Cartwheel is also selling Christmas cards as part of its fund-raising activities. The artworks of the children of Miarayon will be featured in these cards. Details on this will follow in a separate announcement.
A Pilgrimage to Miarayon. Cartwheel members and friends were in Miarayon from September 30 to October 5. Their 6-day itinerary includes an eco-adventure, fiesta celebration with the Tala-andig tribe, among others. They also had a livelihood meeting headed by Fr. Kit Bautista and Ms. Ben Albarece. It was a great success and will hopefully yield benefits to the farmers of Miarayon.
