On April 3, 2022, at 9:00 -11:00 AM, a Voters’ Empowerment session was held at St. Candida Pastoral Center at Fourth Estate Subdivision, Paranaque City, Manresa School’s area for its outreach extension beneficiary.

 Srs. Cecile Solis, Alma Mae Zarriz, and Gemma Doguiles, and some teachers and faculty of Manresa School, namely, Mrs. Tonette Bait-it, Mr. Phillip Pastor, Mr. Ariel Cañete, Miss Jenny Auditor, and Miss Nieva Porras were the resource persons, who took turns in giving enlightening inputs and important guidelines to some 64 participants as criteria for choosing the candidates for the National and local elections on May 9, 2022.

 The participants were actively listening and asking questions for clarification during the forum. Many expressed a longing to have such sessions as they have already missed their BEC meetings after two years of the pandemic. Others were grateful for the guidance given to them by Manresa School which empowered them to truly exercise their right to vote and choose the right persons who will lead the nation that will benefit the people, especially the future of the children and young people.

Some impressions and reponses to the question: May nabago sa inyong pananaw matapos nyong mapakinggan ang mga paliwanag at mga patnubay sa wastong pagpili ng mga mamumuno sa ating bansa?

Meron pong nagbago dahil nung una alam ko na sino ang napiling kandidato pero pagkatapos kung marinig ang mga pagbabahagi sa umagang ito ne sinuri ko isa’t isa ang nararapat sa mga kandidatong napili ko...

Opo, nagbago po ang aking pananaw. Ito ay malaking tulong para sa karagdagang kaalaman. Kulay Rosas ang buhay; ang bukas at angat buhay lahat.

Nagbago po ang pananaw ko sa kahalagahan ng pagpili ng kandidato dahil sa katangian ng isang leader para sa aking mga anak, magiging huwaran ang kanilang makikilala at nakikitang pinuno.

Nagbago po ang pananaw ng pagpili ng kandidato para subukan ang bago, ang karapat-dapat na iluklok sa pwesto.
