To raise funds for the promotion of children projects in Mindanao, a film crew from The Netherlands (NL) visited General Santos City last July 29 to August 9, 2014 to document children in various beneficiary communities of Pasali Philippines Foundation, Inc.
The team is composed of Members from CORDAID Kinderstem, Pasali’s funding agency for the Tri-People Children Development Program (TCDP), and the Junior Song Festival (JSF),a popular children competition in NL. With the filming crew were Anna Alicia, a dancer and TV personality, and Kim Regasa, a Filipino-Dutch singer who recently won second place in the JSF Finals 2013.
The filming activity focused on capturing the daily scenarios and challenges that in and out-of-school children are facing particularly in IP communities like the Badjao Village in Barangay Bawing, and the B’laan residential areas in Barangay San Jose and Upper Labay. The crew documented lives of the children who walk long distances to reach school everyday and others who miss classes, because they have to work for a living.
Anna visited Bawing and Upper Labay to interact with communities, learn and perform their traditional dances. Kim, on the other hand, immersed with the school children in San Jose and Bawing and rendered song performances as well.
The said documentary made by the film crew was broadcasted in NL on September, 2014.
