With the theme, Lakad Bayan para sa Kapayapaan, ASCOT officials and employees joined the other groups from the national and provincial government agencies, civic organizations, non government organizations, business groups, religious organizations, schools and private sectors who participated in the annual undertaking that aims to instill awareness on the importance of peace while generating funds for scholarship programs for poor but deserving and talented youth.
The annual walk which was held last Friday, September 27, 2013 started at 6:00 am from Ermita Hill and culminated with a short program at Baler Fish Port. During the program, scholarship beneficiaries shared their dancing talents to testify how the project had assisted and changed their lives. The activity also include mangrove planting at the area.
Proceeds of the fund-raising campaign will benefit the out-of-school youth with educational assistance and livelihood programs of the Aurora Province through the Provincial Social Welfare and Development.
