Southville Business Students Reach Out to Calamity Victims



Business students of Southville International School and Colleges (SISC) applied into action the things that they learned in their subjects on Corporate Social Responsibility and the Institutional Courses (IC) on Values and Leadership by launching the Sulong sa Pagtulong project at the height of calamities that struck the country recently.

 


Sulong sa Pagtulong was spearheaded by the four active student organizations under the College of Business Administration: Southville International Junior Marketing Association (SIJMA), Global Entrepreneurial Movement of Southville (GEMS), Junior Capital Market Institute of the Philippines (JCMIP), and Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants (JPIA).

 


Donations in cash and in kind overflowed from generous benefactors in the Southville community. Monetary donations were used to purchase grocery items, such as food and toiletries which were packed in each relief bag containing clothes, bottled water, canned goods, and other ready-to-eat foods. Volunteers were able to gather more than 600 packages for distribution. More than 900 families in Muntinlupa who were evacuated at Alabang Elementary School benefited from the said outreach. Student officers and members personally distributed goods in the evacuation center.

 


At times of adversity, the Bayanihan spirit of the Filipinos shines. This is also true for Southville students, for at the heart of each Monarch is the passion to help make a difference in other people’s lives.
