[Kamalayan Mondays] Balikbayan: One Man’s Travels

Monday, February 15, 2009
6:00-8:00 pm
Kapisanan Philippine Centre for Arts & Culture
167 Augusta Avenue, Toronto

Manuel Luis Veneracion is a regular balikbayan who just returned from The Philippines after being away for a year. During his stay he was able to travel through various towns and provinces, cultures and classes from the Northern Cordilleras down into Mindanao. Travelling mostly for the heck of it he also volunteered with the Salinlahi Alliance for Children’s Concerns and the Children’s Rehabiliation Center. He took part in their relief efforts during Typhoon Ondoy as well as several of their other missions and projects. Manuel will share his experiences as a first-time balikbayan as well as show some video and photos from his trip.

This is a good chance for anyone who might be considering doing some volunteer work in the Philippines to learn about what you can do there.
