Celebrating ICI KAYA’s 3rd Year by Making Children Smile


It was 3years ago, when a group of outdoor enthusiasts decided to name their squad as KAYA Mountaineers. On September 26, 2015, the group celebrated its 3RD anniversary, and part of KAYA’s annual celebration is an outreach which is a feeding activity for children.

Spearheaded by Ms. Rio F. Tabanao, the group conducted a feeding program for the children of Luyong Baybayon, Talisayan, Misamis Oriental with the theme “Making the Children Smile and Giving Back to Nature”.  In coordination with some barangay officials, the kids of their barangay were gathered for the program. Games with prizes and storytelling were presented in which the children participated and enjoyed a lot. After the excitement of all the activities, foods and slippers were given to every child in the event. The smiles on the face of the children were visible as they leave the place to go home, and these smiles delighted the hearts of the KAYA Mountaineers.

After the program, the group then proceeded to the Sipaca peak for a clean-up drive. Picked up rubbish and installed banners to warn other people about proper disposal of garbage. They then camped for a night at the peak to savor the beauty of nature.

“Making the Children Smile and Giving Back to Nature”– The theme itself describes that KAYA Mountaineers don’t just love to climb mountains but they also have the heart of helping and sharing.
