Silliman University Student Government Environment Committee (SUSG Enviro Com) taught environmental literacy among the children of Little Children of the Philippines (LCP), entitled “Spreading Environmental Literacy Project” last Feb. 24 at Dumaguete City.
Fearn Anne Acibo, senior student from the College of Mass Communication, and Rhyn Anthony Esolana, junior Foreign Affairs student, talked on the importance of environmental protection and taught the proper waste segregation.
SUSG Enviro Com chairperson Margarita Camilla Delos Santos said their objective is to teach children environmental conservation while they are still young.
“The program is actually part of our MaSEAkap at MaSEApag na Batang Dagat project that aims to conduct monthly community immersion starting last semester during the celebration of Worlds Oceans Day,” said Delos Santos.
She added that they chose LCP because it was the only orphanage near Dumaguete that responded to their message instantly.
According to their website, LCP is a non-denominational Christian organization, helping children through sponsorship, to become contributing members of the society.
About 40 children aging from six to eighteen participated. Last semester, they had this same program at North City Elementary School with 250 sixth grade pupils who participated.
