Greetings fellow JCI Members!

With the remarkable performance and energy each chapter have excelled last year, there’s no doubt that we are looking forward to a year of major breakthroughs as we echo the call of our National President Hegem Furigay for Strength in Unity!

Bags To School (BTS) is aimed to promote primary education nationwide in line with UN-SDG’s Quality Education campaign, i.e., ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all, particularly children in stressed areas.  BTS started in 2014 as a National Flagship program, inspired through the joint project of JCI San Juan Pinaglaban and JCI Singapore Marina, was approved during the First National Board Meeting of 2014.

As we provide more opportunities for our members to be active and staying active citizens, we encourage local organizations to have a two-fold implementation this 2017.  First implementation is recommended between April to June as training and learning ground for members, and second implementation between July to September on a collaborative effort between chapters as a means of strengthening sisterhood while orchestrating a bigger impact.

Moreover, we encourage Batch EPIC Presidents to appoint one of their new members as local project chairperson.  As part of our commitment, we have program champions ready to assist and guide them for a smooth and successful implementation. Local Project Chairpersons can directly contact our Area Chairpersons, namely:

Area                 Area Chairperson                                                Contact Number

 Area 1              Glenda Lou R. Galo, JCI Santiago Diamond            0977 397 5947
