YFC Does the Kawayanihan

Out of 1,200 Camp Kawayan volunteers who went to San Mateo, Rizal last September 23, 2017 to do their bit for the preservation of the environment, 20 were members of CFC Youth for Christ Metro Manila. 


The YFC volunteers represented the ministry through their G-Project Advocacy. They joined the other Camp Kawayan advocates from all over Metro Manila, Central Luzon, and South Luzon in planting bamboo along the riverbanks of San Mateo.


The event was the Kawayanihan 2017 Project organized by ALC Foundation in celebration of World Bamboo Day. Francis Xavier Buñag, a CFC-Youth for Christ fulltime pastoral worker assigned in Metro Manila, as well as the Program Head for G-Project, spearheaded the involvement of YFC in the Kawayanihan Project. The G-Project is an advocacy of Youth for Christ that aims to rally today’s generation to work for a greener nation.


Over the years, the bamboo planting trail dubbed as “Camp Kawayan” has raised awareness on the benefits and potentials of bamboo, encouraging community bamboo planting and grow-ing as a way of climate change mitigation and adaptation.


Others participants were from high schools and universities of Metro Manila, Landbank of the Philippines, Indra Philippines, Conduent Philippines, MiraMed Philippines and ALCH Employees.


“We need to be pro-active in doing our part in taking care of our environment. Now is the time to take action,” Buñag challenged the young generation of CFC to continue to answer the call of taking care of Mother Earth. (Martin Angeles)
