At Tagumpay village they saw Goducate’s Health Information Drive being conducted, as well as Goducate’s music program. In Bay, they visited the prison to see Goducate’s Restoration Program. And later they visited the Goducate Farm, where they enjoyed learning about vermiculture and the growing of organic vegetables.

In the evening we prepared a simple program for the guests at the Goducate Training Center in Puy-puy. The children from the music program and the Goducate scholars were invited, about 50 in all. They rendered a song.  And Dr Low Lee Yong, Chief Executive Officer of MHC Asia, gave an inspirational talk on the importance of education.  Dr. Low also surprised the 35 children from the music program with a gift of school supplies.
