San Antionio, Paranaque. This training was participated by more than 20 child monitors from different Barangays in Paranaque. The theme of the said event was “ Learning is Enjoyable, not Endurable”
Ms. Lourdes van der Linden, ACAP Executive Director, welcomed and thank all the participants for attending and encouraged them that the knowledge they will gain will help them to be more effective in their field.
Topics like Child Discipline, Love Language, Anti-bullying, Child Protection Policy, and Different Philosophies in Education made a great impact on the participants.
The participants shared their personal experiences and the challenges they are facing as parents and child monitors. With the topics presented, they will be able to supervise the families they are in charge of more effectively if they are aware of their own issues.
In addition to the said seminar, MMP conducted the Reading Seminar using the Marungko Approach via zoom to the teachers of Supervised Neighborhood Play Teachers last December 2, 2022.
ACAP is a non-profit organization working to empower marginalized youth through a combination of education, social development, and health and nutritional feeding programs.
