Bugkos Lahi (PPY2012) Philippine's ambassadors to the 39th Ship for SouthEast Asian Youth Program (SSEAYP) went to Lakewood last June 2013 where we conducted our post program activity (PPA).
Project Hope Philippines is our batch's main Social Contribution Activity for the next 3 years. It is our of way sharing what we have learned and earned during our SSEAYP journey. It is our consolidated way of giving back to our society, aside from our individual contributions and advocacy.
Last year, we implemented our first ever Project Hope community outreach which complements the Change for Change initiatives of the entire 39th SSEAYP. We collaborated with Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation and I CAN Make a Difference Inc. through the support of SSEAYP International Philippines (SIP) and National Youth Commission (NYC).
VOLUNTOURISM: Traveling with purpose
Two of our SSEAYP Singaporean batchmates joined our PPA. Soultari Amin Farid and Steven Heng traveled to Zamboanga and immersed themselves in the community. Aside from their volunteer work, they also visited other places in the Philippines like Baguio.

Beyond the glitz and the glamour, PPYs with the special participation of SPYs Amin and Steve, endured the long travel and worked late at night 'til the wee hours in the morning during the project implementation.
DID YOU KNOW that the 39th SSEAYP made history as the first batch to conduct its Social Contribution Activity while onboard the Japanese cruise ship Fuji Maru and even before the 53 day program ended?
The Change for Change Project of Corporate Social Responsibility Discussion Group was adapted by the whole batch and everyone was encouraged to donate their loose change or "sukli" to make a change in the society. Through the generosity of the Admin, Facees, National Leaders, OBSC, and the participating youth from Japan and ASEAN, almost Php 50,000 was raised from this iniative and was enough to purchase some boats for the families in Lakewood where the students have to swim in the lake just to reach their school.
