FPVI Christmas in August

In Leyte, Eastern Visayas, Philippines where FPVI is located, there was a period when Covid-19 regulations were slightly relaxed. This window of easing-up of rules allowed FPVI to plan for an alternative activity for the FPVI students during their school break in July and August. The project would not contravene existing health and safety protocols but still make up for the much anticipated summer activities planned in pre-pandemic times, including mentoring of 60-70 village pupils in reading and creative work by the FPVI students.

This short video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37I6x1W5-AA was put together after the conclusion of the 2020-2021 school year in June with technology and expertise available in a rural setting. Perhaps, it is short of the magic of real Christmas but nonetheless is full of all-out effort and enthusiasm. This is part of FPVI’s efforts to keep the children in its care motivated and optimistic. It also recognizes and celebrates their resilience in the face of many challenges in the past school year. As it turns out, our swift planning paid off as August brought us to another surge in cases of the Delta variant, and with it a return to more stringent health and safety mandates. We completed the video just in time!

The art pieces in this video were done by the FPVI students.
