ESGP-PA Scholars Contribute to
(Press release sent to UEPDATES by Peace Corps Volunteer Ms. Liz Rice)
The Expanded Student Grant-in Aid Program for Poverty Alleviation (ESGPPA) Scholar leaders spearheaded a Campus Clean-up Project on July 26, 2015, at the University of Eastern Philippines' main campus.
The clean-up started at 7:00 in the morning at the University Grandstand. It was attended by 194 ESGPPA Scholar volunteers who participated in the undertaking, under the supervision of Peace Corps Volunteers Nathan Brown, Liz Rice, Kenzie Marshall and University Professor Lourdes Olmedo. After taking attendance, they started roaming with their trash bags and other cleaning materials around every college in the University. They collected trash and cleaned the vicinities of the College of Education (COED), College of Business Administration (CBA), College of Science (CS), College of Arts and Communication (CAC), College of Engineering (COE), College of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Natural Resources (CAFNR), the College of Vet Med (CVM), and even the athletic field.
The Clean-up Project is a voluntary monthly activity to be held every last Sunday of the month during the first semester A.Y. 2015. It is an output of Scholar leaders who attended the 2015 Mabuhay! Scholars Leadership Camp, held May 25-28, at the University Learning Resource Center. This project was planned and implemented by the first 27 Scholars who attended the camp with the help of Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs) and other University Counterparts.
