The Peace Corps Experience and Life with the Natives

“Little Docs”

Long time no see! I am nearing the end of service in the Philippines. Currently I am working with an organization named God’s Love for the Indigents Ministry (GLIM) with a displaced indigenous tribe known as the Sama-Bajau and also with local health units. One of the primary projects that has been a focus of community efforts is named the “Little Doctors” Health Project. It is a peer-to-peer elementary health project, and it has been a blast to have a privilege of working with the community. Here is a link of an article in which it was featured by the US Embassy here in the Philippines:

Currently we are doing in-school lessons ran by fifth and sixth grade students for the younger grades. Topics range from hygiene  to nutrition to the importance of exercise among other activities.
