Many shared that having seen how Cebuanos in difficult situations still manage to smile and be friendly, they feel that they too should pledge to smile often and be grateful for all their blessings. Another common reflection shared was how the experiences have opened their eyes to the harsh realities of the third world and that it is important for them to commit in their own ways to be an instrument or bridge for change and help to reach those in dire need in the Philippines.

Kindai Uni students MoNA workshops (1 of 4)

A group of Kindai University students led by their professor Andrew Atkins is in town for a sustainability tour in Cebu. The Psychology Volunteers on Bikes, The Cebu trio of permaculture hotels: West Gorordo Hotel, Elicon House and Mayflower Inn and the MoNA are teaming up to give these students meaningful experiences during their visit to Cebu.

Here are some photos of the welcome workshop facilitated by MoNA’s Paulina Constancia. The workshop was intended to give the Japanese uni students tidbits of the local culture by means of an ntroduction to fruits and expressions. Paulina aptly called the session “Finger Fruits: (pun on Finger Food)…not too much, not too little, just a teaser…
