More than just EPIC Leaders

A month and 5 days ago, I took place in becoming a participant in EPIC Inti. It was a learning and a fun process of 3 amazing days.

Here’s my little ‘portfolio’ of what basically happen for the past 3 weeks when my team ; Orion, grouped together and have our very own Z-Rive Program. They say pictures speak a thousand words so I’ll let all the pictures below do the all the talking. (I apologise some photos are not at its best)

Good Samaritan Home, a little orphanage of 25 orphans from ages between 3 to 17. This was our day one where we did all kind of games. Stories, laughter and hugs were shared.

Almost 6 hours being spent in the orphanage and it was a touching experience. A kid asked me whether my own family is happy because he couldn’t imagine having a family. At that very moment I stood there, lost of words and somehow I managed to say “Yeah they’re happy” and he gave me a hug saying thank you for being just the camera person.

Day 2 : Wesley Methodist School

13 form 3 students participated in our Z-Rive program which they had fun with the activities that we had with them. We managed to open their eyes to see a clearer vision of each of their future through our motivational talk.

PS : Team Orion rewarded ourselves with a hearty meal of banana leaf rice πŸ˜‰

Day 3 : Wesley Methodist School + St. Barnabas refugee school

7 students from St. Barnabas refugee school along with 13 students from Wesley Methodist School had 4 hour bonding session. The students from Wesley Methodist school came up with hand-made gifts, a ‘paper fan’ activity, a Science session and the kids formed two teams to build their tallest paper tower.

3 amazing days of looking through the camera lenses to capture the smiles, joy, excited and laughter from the kids. The refugees also did a performance for us. This is how us EPIC leaders did our part in achieving our goal in empowering youth. And here’s a little highlight on what we’ve done.
