On Friday, June 23, Marie and Nida met the mothers of the new students of the Child Minding program at the Family Care Center. The meeting was conducted by Marie Tangalin, to discuss the terms of agreement between Rise Above Foundation Cebu and the mothers of the new kids.
The meeting took place at the little library and learning area in the center at 3 o’clock in the afternoon. The first part of the meeting was a casual conversation between Marie and the mothers to get to know them more. Then, Marie proceeded to discuss the Memorandum of Agreement with the mothers.
All of the mothers of the new kids are housewives who are mostly occupied with household chores for the rest of the day. The agreement aims to encourage the mothers to participate more in the RecyBags program.
This way, they can also learn how to earn their income while their kids are taken care of at the Family Care Center.
The meeting ended less than an hour later, with the mothers heading home together with their children. We hope that the meeting pave way for a difference in the lives of the mothers and their children.
Together we can make a difference!
