Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro East Urban Launches WATSAN Project for Community Well-being

The Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro East Urban (RCCEU) under the leadership of Club President Bing Dacudao and District Governor Gilda “Gigi” Go has embarked on a significant endeavor to address the fundamental human right to clean water and sanitation. The WATSAN project, supported by the District Grant of RID 3870, aims to provide improved sanitation facilities for the community. The project involves the construction of sanitary public restrooms in front of the Gusa Barangay Hall, with separate cubicles for males and females. The groundbreaking ceremony took place on January 15, attended by the Gusa Punong Barangay, Marlo Tabac. The anticipated completion and turnover of this essential infrastructure are scheduled for February 27, 2024. Furthermore, the Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro East Urban is committed to utilizing the excess funds from the WATSAN project to renovate the existing children’s comfort room in the Gusa Day Care Center. This initiative is expected to benefit sixty (60) learners and underscores the club’s ongoing dedication to community welfare. The Gusa Day Care Center, which was established 30 years ago under the leadership of then RCCEU President Sarah Borja, continues to play a vital role in the local community. The Rotary Club extends its appreciation to Architect Rtn Jonel Juaneza Tabilla and her team for their unwavering effort in making these projects a reality. The commendable efforts of every member of the WATSAN team and the RCCEU members have been instrumental in driving the success of these initiatives. Their relentless support and commitment to enhancing the well-being of the community have not gone unnoticed. In closing, the project chair, Rotarian Grace Go, is congratulated and thanked for her exemplary leadership and dedication to the realization of the WATSAN project. The Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro East Urban looks forward to the positive impact of these initiatives on the community and remains steadfast in its mission to serve humanity.

Empowered Women Empower Women: An All-Women Rotary Club’s Advocacy Against Violence

Empowered Women Empower Women: An All-Women Rotary Club’s Advocacy Against Violence

As an all-women Rotary club, we embrace our femininity – sometimes fragile, but always capable and empowered. We are loved by our families in different roles – as grandmothers, mothers, titas, wives, daughters, and sisters. But despite the love and support we receive, not all women are as fortunate as we are. This March, as we celebrated Women’s Month, we aimed to spread a little joy to fifty women who are victims of violence. Through the efforts of Rotary CDO East Urban, in partnership with RC CDO Spouses, Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro, I Will Serve Foundation, and Cagayan de Oro City Police Office, we provided 50 women with livelihood kits for manicure and pedicure, hygiene kits, 5-kilo sack rice, and boxed lunch. It is our hope and prayer that these livelihood kits will be the start of a new journey for these women and their children – one that is safe, peaceful, and full of joy. We believe that empowering these women through education and livelihood opportunities can help them break free from the cycle of violence and provide for their families in a dignified way. We understand the sensitivity of the matter and want to assure everyone that no pictures were taken of the women. Many of them have pending cases on VAWC, or Violence Against Women and Children. Still, we are immensely grateful for the trust given to us to make even a small difference in the lives of these women. This project was made possible under the Chairmanship of Marie Lynn-Benjamin Booc, Director for Community Service PP Bebotte Chu, and Director for Vocational Service PAG Rosalinda Caragos. We are proud to be part of this initiative and stand firm in our commitment to the well-being and empowerment of women. As members of Rotary District 3870, we uphold the motto “Service Above Self,” and we will continue to advocate for the rights and dignity of every woman. Join us in our cause, and together, let us empower women to empower others. #rotarydistrict3870 #RotaryServiceAboveSelf Check out more photos for this project from our...
