THE Lion year begins with Kindasan Lions Club in Baguio City lining up a series of activities with programs on health, services for the children in need, and projects on environment as part of its major commitment for the community.

On July 15, this all-women group together with the students from the College of Arts and Sciences of the University of the Cordilleras are set to join forces for an environmental protection project focusing on an urban regreening program specifically through tree planting.

The significant activity is also the club's way of joining in the meaningful celebration of Cordillera Day, an annual observance of the momentous creation of the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) through an Executive Order issued then by President Corazon Aquino on July 15, 1987.


The Kindasan members lead by their Charter President Sonia Daoas together with the students, officers, and advisers from the UC Language and Communication Department, Mass Communication Society and UC CAS KALIPUNAN intend to plant at least 200 seedlings of pine trees in Camp 8 Watershed on Tuesday morning.

The tree planting activity is another important project of Kindasan for this Lion Year 2014-2015 which started first day of July. "Strengthen the Pride" is this year's theme under the leadership of Lion International President Joe Preston.

Today Friday, the Kindasan with their new president Dr. Rhodora Ngolob is set to visit Gumatdang Elementary School in Itogon, Benguet for the turnover of at least 100 Hygiene Kits for the kindergarten classes of the said school.

The programs on basic health care and environmental protections are just two of the humanitarian service venture the Kindasan is focusing on which is in line with the Lions International thrust, strengthening the pride through service.

With great partnership, involving the students and the academe there will be more significant projects that will be realized for the intended communities that need help. These projects become more meaningful if it makes a difference for the target beneficiaries.
