Project Smile: DLSZ Alternative Learning Experience for Faculty

Despite the haunting experience brought by Haiyan, the Filipinos never failed to show resiliency by wearing a smile.

The La Isla Bonita (yes the song) in Rosario Cavite became a refuge camp to the the victims of Typhoon Yolanda since December of 2013. Here, different families all over eastern Visayas gathered together to rise once again and dream. It was very overwhelming to hear their stories of struggle and survival, yet despite these things they still manage to smile.

Here are a few shots I took during our ALE 2014

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a
listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all
of which have the potential to turn a life around.” 
― Leo Buscaglia
