Mahinog Response 143 chosen as official entry to Doon Po Sa Amin Learning Challenge

THE Camiguin National High School (CNHS) has chosen Mahinog Response 143 as its official entry to this year's Doon Po Sa Amin Learning Challenge under emergency response and disaster preparedness category.

Doon Po Sa Amin (DPSA) is a project initiated by Smart Communications Inc. (Smart) under its corporate social responsibility program Kabalikat, and is aimed at encouraging teachers and students to use computer and Internet technologies to generate web-based information and educational materials about their respective communities. This project is in line with Smart’s thrust to promote information and communications technology (ICT) integration in basic education.

One of the end goals of the project is to generate and consolidate rich local content for the promotion and development of communities. A rich local content defines the community, and its people, culture, and society – thus the name "Doon Po Sa Amin," which literally means "in our place".

Mahinog Response 143 was chosen due to its efforts to promote local volunteerism including their role in mitigating disaster in the community over the past 8 years.

The entry entitled "Heroes of Our time" is now published on the web. Click this link:
