September 3, 2016 marks a day of joy and laughter for the children beneficiaries of the Children’s Joy Foundation. With this year’s theme, “KABATAANG PINOY, NAGKAKAISA SA LIPUNANG MASAYA AT MASIGLA”, Children’s Joy Foundation (CJF) USA together with Children’s Joy Foundation Incorporated (CJFI), hosted the 6th CJF Kids’ Fun and Talent Day at the KJC Beach Resort in Samal, Davao del Norte.
Ms. Rosemarie N. Dimagnaong, the Executive Director of CJFI officially opened the event with a warm welcome to all the participants coming from the different Social Welfare and Development Agencies (SWADAs) in Davao City, the CJFI staff and our very own CJF USA delegates.
Gathered under a colored tent that perfectly decorated the activity venue, the participants engaged in a series of music festivities, fun games, and more. One of the main attractions of the event was the showcase of talents by the children beneficiaries from the different social welfare agencies.
Lunch time was even an enjoyable experience as the delegates from CJF USA assisted in serving the meal and drinks for the children, after which the talent showcase continued. The CJF USA delegates also surprised the children by performing dance numbers that thoroughly entertained the crowd.
The kids enjoyed the freebies, gifts, and tokens that were distributed during the event and were even more ecstatic when they were allowed to go swimming in the warm beach waters of the resort.
The CJF Kid’s Fun and Talent Day hosted by CJFI is an annual activity that children from different social welfare agencies look forward to every year. Indeed, on its 6th year, it succeeded in achieving its objectives to create an avenue for children coming from different agencies to have fun, to showcase their talents, to promote positive relationships with co-residents, staff and others and most importantly, to develop the children’s appreciation of self and the people around them. This strengthened the environment where warmth, acceptance, love and sense of belonging is present.
The active participation and contribution of CJF USA made this year’s event even more meaningful, not only to the children beneficiaries but also to the delegates who experienced first-hand the joys and intangible rewards of sharing in a cause beyond ourselves — to bring love and happiness to the children who most needed it.Indeed, #thereisstillloveintheworld.
