PSYCHSOC consociate with the girls of Jeremiah Foundation
St. Scholastica’s College, Manila Psychology Society S.Y. 2015-2016 had their first outreach last Monday, October 12, 2015. They went to Jeremiah Foundation, a home for sexually abused teens and women which is located at Pasig City. The said organization went there with our very own Sr. Mary Emmanuel Espera, OSB. We planned a mini program for the girls including an intermission number and snacks for the teens. Interacting with these girls was overwhelming. Now we know that we can make a change and put smiles on their faces. No matter how hard our pasts are, how great our present is or how perfectly our future will be, we are still in one community; caring and protecting one another. To the organization’s surprise, Jeremiah Foundation even prepared three dance numbers about God and Women Empowerment. After the activity, Psychology Society handed their tokens to the girls; donated old clothes, accessories and school supplies from the members of the organization. Both Jeremiah Foundation and Psychology Society felt fulfilled on the outreach. A return visit is a must!
