Friday was a busy day. Traffic was horrible and others were rushing to finish work before the week ends. Well, freelancers don't always have a weekend break. Nevertheless, I decided to take time off to see the live video conference between Cotabato and Manila highschool students facilitated by PeaceTech. The event is made possible by livestreaming of large quantities of data over a dedicated line (via PLDT).

The forum was intended to open the students to ideas and discussions on peace. There were two facilitators, one from Cotabato and one from Manila. One would wonder how to encourage all students to join the activities. Well, have a look at the photos and see how cooperative and attentive the students were.
Cheering for Peace
Realizing that peace starts with them, student volunteers patiently helped as group facilitators and were also tasked to assist and orient the guest students. From usherers to FGD leaders, despite the heat and restless crowd, they still managed to give their bright smiles. Well done!
