Steemit Philippines' Walk of Hope Update : Today is the day for Bamboo planting!

in #steemph4 years ago

Are we ready to rumble?

As Bayawan City prepares for the "Bamboo Planting" today, so are the kids from Cabangan High School with Marlon aka @flabbergast-art and Tatay Dagsa.



For those who are not in the know, Walk of Hope, is the THEME for the Music & Arts Project being headed by @flabbergast-art. Mainly with the purpose of bringing the said project to the underprivileged Filipinos in Visayas and Mindanao, as previously done in two occasions in Manila last year, in collaboration with Marlon and his group "Tribu Alinaga"and Steemit Philippines. Joining Marlon is Tatay Dagsa, another artist living in Bayawan City.

As the city's main livelihood is of bamboo handicrafts, and having different kinds in their area, one kind of bamboo is being bought in another town. Hence, it was decided as the first project of #walkofhope is BAMBOO PLANTING.


If a pen is mightier than a sword, let's see on what these musical instruments can do to our fellow Filipinos and the country.

Today also includes some harvesting of bamboo to continue what @flabbergast-art have been doing since the beginning of April, doing Art Workshops to different groups of kids, as well as bamboo innovations for future handicrafts in Bayawan. My previous #walkofhope posts were full of innovative handicrafts made that were also shown in a couple of events in Negros. Let's not forget what he have been doing with his local and indigenous musical instruments.

But today, we focus on the kids from Cabangan High School and the local officials who will be doing this event together.

This event was originally planned for the 21st, but due to less participants, it was moved for today. Supposedly to be joined by another group from Dumaguete City, they cancelled a couple of days ago. As this is a Steemit Philippines' event, @steemph.negros' lead have been joining Marlon every now and then from Dumaguete City, about 2 hours away.


Thanks for the constant support kuya @bobiecayao. Satibay!!!

This event's venue will be at the Cabangan High School as there will be a Music & Arts' workshp after the planting event. And a Boodle Fight. Anyone knows what that is? It's a very common thing in the Philippines.


The Cabangan High School, Bayawan City.

The plan is to surround the school's stage with bamboo to serve as better amplifier in the future. Has anyone heard of the Philippines' Bamboo organ in Las Piñas? Check that out! An adjacent land to the school have also been provided by the local government for the event.

Expect future innovations and events that would come from Bayawan as this project have the involvement of the local governments and the Department of Tourism and Industry of the Philippines.

# It's more fun in the Philippines!

This is in lieu of Steemit Philippines' mission to PROMOTE THE PLATFORM THROUGH IT's CHARITY INITIATIVE.

Wonderful and great effort to give recreation and activate the creativity of the children with such motivating workshops. I was fascinated to see the children walking with their musical instruments. Initiatives like these are what make a country great. Art and sport help children to have a better development of their mind and body. Congratulations to the promotion team. Happiness always.

Yep that's him..we wanna feature him too one day☺😑

wow! Bilis mo naman naka-pagpost ate, pang WonderWoman. Ang saya nito ate, sali tayo ng Grass Planting..

Tapos na kuya!!! Wa na🤣🤣😂

Hahaha, I must be one of those who is "not in the know"! Thank you for exposing us to the beautiful traditions in your city. It is great to have student involvement in such activities. Do they do this as an after-school activity? an extra-curricular? or part of their curriculum? Very interesting, indeed.

The Music and Arts project is for the underpriviledged Filipinos down south of the Philippines..but it so happens that the length of stay for @flabbergast-art in this town have exceeded what we planned plus the venue was in their school...these kids have been included.

As this project have progressed, the dept. of education and the tourism and industry are now involved.

Thanks! Watch this space☺
What happened to our DM?

Oh wow look at you go!

I stop coming to Steemit everyday and after a few months you have 2700 followers and making a killing off your posts! Keep up the awesome work. I will check back more often from now on :)
