“It was a great help for … the students since their skills were enhanced as well as their knowledge on disaster preparedness, especially that Barangay Egana was identified as an evacuation community [of the town]. So, these youth have a big role as volunteers and first responders.”

The SCLR projects are initiatives spearheaded by members of PCDR’s beneficiary communities.
