Voter’s Education with CYPD Beneficiaries in Pangasinan, Quezon City, and Romblon
The main mission of the Foundation is to empower children and youth as well as to make them a productive member of our society. Part of it is being an active voter. Voting is taking a direct participation in the governance in our country as our vote determine the future of our country; either for better or for worst. Since the national election is only a year to date, a Voter’s Education was conducted to 11 beneficiaries in Quezon City on May 10, 2021, 3 beneficiaries in Pangasinan on May 11, 2021, and 9 beneficiaries in Romblon on May 17, 2021.
The session helped them to understand the value of election and being an active voter. They were reminded that their vote is both a right and a privilege as it can influence change in our country. The session also gave emphasis to vote wisely and the qualities they should look for their bet. The qualities they should look are righteous governance, person with integrity, gifted, has the heart to serve, and good track record. The beneficiaries, then, are encouraged to get registered as a voter in their respective areas and roll out this session to their co-beneficiaries, also to their family and friends. As it is said, “The best way for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”
