  • Education, Information and Training Project

    PAFPI will embark a three-year campaign on HIV in partnership with local government and community. With the continuing increase of Filipinos getting infected with HIV (as reported by the Epidemiology Bureau of the Department of Health), PAFPI considers it an organizational mission to contribute to national HIV/AIDS-response through education and awareness campaign for vulnerable populations (such as departing overseas Filipino workers [PDOS], community, schools, workplaces) in order to promote behavioral change and lessening negative impacts including stigma and discrimination. Psychosocial services like counseling and referral to partner-agencies are routinely done. A significant component of PAFPI’s education campaign is drug-adherence. Some treatment-naïve clients often do not obtain appropriate pre- and post-test counseling especially from diagnostic centers, and thus fail to understand or appreciate the importance of adherence to ARV-regimen (the primary goal of the Anti-Retroviral Treatment (ART) is to prevent HIV related morbidity and mortality). Others stop taking meds simply because of lack of means to go to treatment institutions or hubs; still more do not have the wherewithal to pay PhilHealth insurance premiums. Poor adherence leads to immune deterioration, and a damaged immune-system in turn makes it hard for the body to fight infections and certain cancers. It also increases risks of drug-resistance and HIV treatment failure. Another part of incidental dissemination of information is to correct PLHIV-clients’ notions about nutrition, as this is an area often neglected in hospital environments. Not eating the right kind of food often results to fatigue, appetite loss, diminutions in senses of smell or taste, nausea, vomiting, infections or other problems of the mouth or throat.

  • Project Baon

    Dear Friends, Aral Pinoy has registered here with Pass It Forward (PIF). PIF hosts the Aral Pinoy Project Baon and allows people to donate online. Aral Pinoy is raising funds for a cause, a scholarship campaign for 20 Filipino graduating students both in high school and in college. They will graduate and earn their diplomas maybe by March or April 2018. Today we need for them Php 80,000 pesos, which is already for one school year schooling assistance of these 20 deserving students.    At first level, Aral Pinoy needs to raise 80,000 pesos from at least 80 unique donors who would be sharing 1,000 pesos each, hopefully this can be raised within 30 days. At second level, once Aral Pinoy achieves this, it will make it easier to get more help from new generous donors and eventually help more students. One graduating student says: "My big dream is to be a certified public accountant and this project will fulfill my dream by supporting my schooling expenses. I will find a job right away after graduation to support my family." He wants to fly and the other 19 students too, all they need are us who will give them wings to let their hearts soar as high as they will! Aral Pinoy started its 1st Year of Project Baon since school year 2011-2012 in honor of the Dr. Jose P. Rizal during his 150th Birth Anniversary (June 19, 2011) and also during the 113th Anniversary of the Proclamation of the Philippine Independence (Araw ng Kasarinlan, June 12, 2011). Aral Pinoy through Project Baon assured the schooling assistance of these ten (10) scholars for the school year 2011-2012.Aral Pinoy Blogspot on Project Baon The school year 2016-2017 is already the 6th year of Aral Pinoy Project Baon and it hopes to increase the schooling assistance from ten (10) to twenty (20) scholars this time or even more.  "A report funded by the United Nations Development Programme, out of 100 students who enter Grade 1, only 68 will complete 6th grade, and of that number, only 57 will go to high school, of which only 42 will continue..."  Rappler on College Studies "Based on the Commission on Higher Education's (CHED) 2008 data, ...of the 42, only 23 finished high school enrolled in college, and of the 23, only 14 eventually graduate from college." Manila Bulletin – Tue, Dec 4, 2012  College Education for Poor Students And despite having 100% free public elementary and secondary education in our country, many students have no allowance money nor baon for their snack-foods or meals for their schooling, no needed school supplies, no funds to spend for their school requirements and no transportation fair. Public education is not so free after all. These are the concerns that the schooling assistance would address to support students in their studies and encourage them to go to and stay in school.   This is why Aral Pinoy Project Baon is born, and its heart soars as high as it will!

  • The Dalaginding Project

    The realities... Province of Ifugao -- is a landlocked province of the Philippines in the Cordillera Administrative Region in Luzon. Its capital is Lagawe and it borders Benguet to the west, Mountain Province to the north, Isabela to the east, and Nueva Vizcaya to the south.  Adolescent population of Ifugao is 23% of the total population of 190,948 of NSO 2010 Census. Under this adolescent age bracket there are 22,527 males and 21,859 females. The Ifugao Population is characterized as a young age population with a high dependency ratio of 68%. This is a diverse major segment in the population of Ifugao that have varying problems and concerns which needs paramount attention. The young population requires provision for social, physical and psychological resources and having a high dependency burden implies a heavy burden to the working age group that would result to limited savings and investments in both micro and macro level. Gender issues... 1. High incidence of teenage pregnancy 2. Early marriage 3. Increasing number of sexually transmitted disease (STD) 4. Emerging number of Abortion 5. Alarming number of rape, incest, and sexual harassment 6. Youth malnutrition 7. Low participation in locally mandated government bodiesWhat we can do…PNGOC believes and upholds the dignity of every woman and adolescents to become empowered in asserting their rights, dreams and aspiration in life, and most of all to prevent violence against women and children (VAWC). PNGOC interventions focus on young adolescents aged 10 to 19 for the following reasons:  a. Acknowledges adolescence as a critical period of transition in life. This is the period when the girls “grows so fast,” that it is unnoticed. b. This is the period of puberty when psychosocial changes and adjustments occur. c. The girl seeks attention and the urge to belong. She starts to socialize and join groups  Another focus is to help adolescents in poor communities to uphold their basic rights and to become empowered for the following reasons: *Women in poor communities are vulnerable from different forms of abuses and violence. Most of the time they are not empowered to seek support services, especially when their rights are violated due to lack of support group and stigma from the community. *Some women suffer the cycle of domestic violence resulting to emotional and psychological trauma, which affects the relationships among its family members. The Dalaginding ProjectThe ‘dalaginding’ derives from a Filipino local term for young adolescent women. The Dalaginding Project is a gender responsive project that help empower young adolescent women to learn and lead change through: a. Age appropriate self- development and leadership training b. Catalyzing action for girls’ rights c. Recognize the position of power and influence of boys in shaping the behaviors. d. Assist in forming 6 Girls’ Clubs (school or community setting) of emerging girl-leaders to train their peers and encourage them to set up Girls Clubs in their communities. Girls’ Clubs can help shift gender norms, attitudes and practices by increasing girls’ self confidence, encouraging them to express their views and gaining more power to control their lives. e. Mentor the Girls Clubs in managing projects and events such as fundraising activities, micro entrepreneurial and income generating activities, and developing life skills.The Campaign Messages For every PHP 1,000.00 you can help a young adolescent to undergo empowerment training and to have an Young Adolescent Empowerment Toolkit.
