Employees and scholars of the Southville International School and Colleges (SISC) and its sister school Southville Foreign University (SFU) extended their collective hand to realize the objective of this year’s “Southville for Others” held at Barangay C.A.A., Las Piñas City last October 4, 2013. Composed of SISC faculty, staff and management in coordination with Barangay C.A.A leaders, the group beautified and repainted the façade walls of the barangay, conducted a medical mission for its residents (especially the senior citizens and persons with disabilities), conducted story-telling sessions, made book donations and planted ornamental plants along the streets.
Southville for Others was done in celebration of the 23rd Founding Anniversary of Southville International School and Colleges. This is a corporate social responsibility undertaking aims to improve the living conditions in Barangay C.A.A. through environmental enhancement, social development, and economic and financial improvement through a unified act of volunteerism.
