Do It Right advocacy (DIR) since 2009 are helping the community to become aware and concerned about the environment. We distributed goods after Typhoon Ondoy hit the South primarily at Bay Area. Contributors were students, private citizens and teachers from different parts of the nation. Since then DIR reached out as far as Aklan for Reproductive Health Forum and Feeding Programs.
Because of the work done, An International Women’s Organization supported DIR to have an event entitled: RH through the eyes of the Youth which was held at Conspiracy Bar with participants from the Democratic Socialist Women of the Philippines(DSWP), Alliance of Young Nurses League Association (AYNLA), The Library Foundation (TLF), National Youth Consortium (NYC), Critical Thinking Filipinos (CTF), Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Trangender Rights (LGBTs) and Dead Heroes Society (DHS) and was covered by Mulat Pinoy.
For this 2012, DIR did a lot of awareness program in the South like Press Conference with the DSWP Chair Elizabeth Angsioco as speaker with different Media Practitioners from Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon.
We reached and helped the PESANTE Filipinas which is composed of Farmers in their last Congress at Calauan, Laguna which was attended by the Vice President of the Philippines Jejomar Binay and the Philippines 12 provinces and helped them distribute their message and concern when they had a close door meeting at the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) at their main office at Quezon City.
For this coming April 22, 2012 as we celebrate EARTH DAY with theme: “Earth Day today, everyday and everywhere” DIR with the help of the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) invited fellow environmentalist from Earth Day Network Philippines President himself Guilberto “Bert” Guevarra to be one of the speaker with media as participants. This is DIRs way to contribute with the information the community is needed for the Environment.
