Outdoor Activity with Youth and elderly of Sant’Egidio Philippines watching the "Aawitan Kita" Theatre Show in Makati City. The school of peace in Cainta

printable version

A project of Vice President Binay for "Aawitan Kita” Theater Show at Makati University last April 12, 2013 showcased the positive ideas of exploring the traditional values of elderly towards friendship, courtship and marriage.  This is a monthly theater show in the City of Makati that gives the elderly people, senior citizens a free admission to be entertained with music and cultural shows. This is an initiative that is also proposed to spread in all cities and towns of the country to help the growing numbers of old people to combat loneliness and turn it into an atmosphere of joyfully spending time of having this kind of free monthly shows that would also help the young generation to adhere the good values of the past.
Attended for FREE by the hundreds of senior citizens and young people of Sant’Egidio Community in Manila, by the invitation of Mr.  Emmanuel Villafuerte- Sectoral Representative of National Anti-Poverty Commission -  we have regained an awareness that resulted in a new sense of responsibility that makes today the elderly leading role in the first person of this proposal. The years of our encounters with the old people contributed to the realization of a more human society. A 'need for a "reconciliation" between different generations: young people and adults need of the elderly and vice versa. A society where there is no place for the elderly is inhumane. For this reason, the Community of Sant'Egidio involves young people in the meeting with the elders, with visits in institutions for a couple of years. Truly, elders can help change the current mode of envisioning life, the way we think and the way we face old age. That the life of the elderly is of great value and full of inspirations that young people should consider towards a real meaning of love, friendship, the meaning of life.

Celebrating the first year of the School for Peace, second place of service for the children of Sant’Egidio Community in the town of Rizal which opened last year of May 12, 2012.  Youth who also used to be one of the choir groups in the village are involved in educating and building friendship with the little children of poor families in the village.
