3KB Wellness Culminating Activity : Kaayuhan, Kalambuan para sa Kabataang Badjao

3KB Wellness Culminating Activity

Kaayuhan, Kalambuan para sa Kabataang Badjao Wellness Program


Finally, the day has come to recognize the Badjao Students of Don Carlos A. Gothong Memorial National High School who have successfully graduated from the Kaayuhan, Kalambuan para sa Kabataang Badjao Wellness Program.


As the students were excited to graduate and receive their certificates so was the Gothong Southern Foundation Team together with the University of San Carlos Psychology Department to start this momentous culminating activity and are truly in for a treat as the program was prepared by the faculty of the school.


A beautiful prayer in the Badjao dialect commenced the culminating activity followed by the opening remarks prepared by the IPED Coordinator Miss Helna Canete. Student representatives for each grade level were then called up to stage one after the other to share their learnings from the 3KB Wellness Program.


The students shared how the 3KB Program opened their minds and changed their way of thinking. The program instilled in them the importance decision making and how every choice an individual makes will always have a corresponding consequence.  The program also taught them that whatever it is that they set their mind into and whatever dream it is they want to realize, with perseverance it is achievable. Finally, the program taught them that their cultural background should not be a hindrance of their day to day activities; in fact it is something that they should be most proud of because they are among the few who have chosen to live by their cultural heritage.


The students absolutely drew in the audience with their sharings and in turn some words of encouragement from the organizing team followed afterwards. To break the ice were intermission numbers performed by the students in a form of dance showcasing a modern dance in one segment and their cultural dance in the other, fortunately which some members of the organizing team were able to participate in.


Finally the moment the students have been looking forward to, the graduation proper and the distribution of their certificates. The 38 graduates of the 3KB Program all had smiles on their faces as their names we being called to come up on stage and be recognized. A photo opportunity with all the Badjao students followed as well as the distribution of their appetizing lunch.


This 3KB Program was as fulfilling both to the students who learned so much from the sessions prepared as well as to Gothong Southern Foundation for realizing a vision for the Badjao Students.

Back to school fun with the students at Cambagocboc Elementary School


June 11, 2018 – A morning full of blessings, fun and, laughter took place at the Cambagocboc Elementary School. This was all thanks to the back-to-school program sponsored by Gothong Southern Foundation Inc [GSF].

The foundation hosted a School Kit Provision Program for the Kindergarten pupils of the mountain barangay school, followed by a kiddie party for all of the students present.

The event was made even more special with the presence of the president of the foundation. Miss Caroline Joy Gothong-Ong along with her family. Mr. Celso Mayol, GSF Executive Director, was also present and gave an inspiring message to everyone present in the program, especially among the students and teachers.

Consequently, the young daughters of the GSF President were eager to lead the distribution of the school kits. Although the pupils were a bit shy to receive their customized bags containing school supplies they’d use the entire year, the joy and gratitude on their faces were very transparent.

After the school kit distribution, fun and laughter echoed the mountain barangay as the kiddie party began. There were a lot of games and dance numbers that had everyone laughing till their stomachs hurt.

This was one for the books to Gothong Southern Foundation as they continue their mission to improve the lives of the schools and the communities they’ve touched.
