February 10 - March 2, 2009
Arrival at Tagbilaran City Airport (February 10, 2009).
Twenty-three students from Nanzan Junior College in Nagoya, Japan and two professors led by Fr. Jose Rizal Santos, SVD, with Ms. Masae Kochiwa visited Bohol last February 10 - March 2 to conduct their International Cooperation Volunteer Fieldwork Programme (ICVFP) in cooperation with the Center for Community Extension and Development of Holy Name University. The objectives of the programme are: (1) to provide opportunities for our Nanzan Junior Women college students to experience in a cross-cultural setting volunteer work among marginalized and less privileged urban communities, (2) to enhance their communication skills in the use of the English language abroad through volunteer service, as well as (3) to encourage and promote cultural exchange through family home stay and shared outreach activities.
To achieve the objectives of their 3-week stay in Bohol, CEDev lined up different activities such as:
- Exposure to the Day Care Centers (St. Arnold Janssen Day Care Center, San Isidro Day Care Center, Lindaville Phase II Day Care Center, Catarman, Dauis Day Care Center and Sections A, B, and C of the Grade I at Catarman Elementary School;
- livelihood assistance where the students helped in the food production/processing of selected low-income families who are indulged in small businesses; and
- Visit to the Orphanage at the Sunshine Home; Dumpsite "Garbage Scavengers Association"; and at the Bohol Crisis Intervention Center - a center for abused women and children. The Japanese students, all women, were distributed to 12 host families who hosted them for two weekends. The weekends with the host families gave them a real picture of how Boholano families spend their weekends.
