Filipino youth, creativity and poverty alleviation

The Peace and Equity Foundation is enjoining the Filipino Youth to be part of its effort on poverty alleviation through a creative writing and photo essay contest with the theme dubbed as "Mga kulay ng kahirapan, hamon ng kinabukasan."

This is in conjunction with the 2007 Social Development Week celebrations in December this year to be held at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City.

As the primer on the contest says:
"The contest aims to create awareness and educate the youth on the country's poverty situation. Through creative writing and photography, the youth are given
the opportunity to express their learning and appreciation of the prevalence of poverty in the country, as described in the National Poverty Map. Their works will then be used to generate more interest in PEF's poverty reduction programs."

Contest Theme:

Poverty in the Philippines comes in many faces: faces of sadness, despair, fear, anxiety and perhaps anger for the pain and suffering that people go through. But through the cooperation of community members and with the active involvement of stakeholders, these dull images could be filled with color and life. As the poverty situation in our country is a story filled with the stark contrasts of colors, we face the challenge of creating new faces of hope, excitement, optimism and determination to fulfill the promise of a better and brighter tomorrow. Hence the theme, "Mga Kulay ng Kahirapan, Hamon ng Kinabukasan"

I would have wanted to join this contest but I am not qualified to participate. The contest is open only to students. If you are, bring out your creative juices and participate.
