Corporate volunteers celebrate Christmas with World Vision children
As Christmas draws near, new and long-time partners of World Vision continue to give their time and generosity to celebrate with children supported by the child-focused organization. Through World Vision’s employee engagement program, which allows our partners to organize learning events for children, corporate employees are able to share joy and help underprivileged children broaden their horizons.
LEARNING FROM INDUSTRY EXPERTS
Last November, volunteers from Nexus Technologies conducted an information and technology training to more than 30 children from Batangas. With these training activities, Nexus Technologies aim to provide children with basic software and coding knowledge that are essential to their education. Meanwhile, volunteers from WV’s International Shared Services in the Philippines held an arithmetic review class for children in BASECO to refresh their skills in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
On November 23, Homeschool Global, a global learning organization focused on homeschool learning, organized a simultaneous party in Manila, Malabon and Cebu for more than 450 children supported by World Vision. The celebration was the organization’s way of sharing joy through games, foods and prizes. Meanwhile, employees from Rakuten Viber and J&T Express also held a party with children from BASECO as part of their employee engagement and early Christmas merriment.
To learn more about the impact of World Vision’s programs in the community, corporate volunteers can join Vision Trip, an immersion organized by World Vision in its supported communities. Volunteers from MyTown had the opportunity to join a Vision Trip in Batangas, where they spent time different host families and saw firsthand how World Vision works with children and families to build sustainable communities.
