Project Proposal: Extension of Children’s Activity Center
September 2007
         The Children’s Activity Center was completed in May 2007 and has since then,
         become the “second home” of children, youth, mothers and fathers of the

         Soon after, with the support from the Catholic Education Association of the
         Philippines (CEAP) a community library was set-up for the basic Rs (reading
         writing and arithmetic). A set of Encyclopedia and children’s books on science,
         math, Pilipino and English Reading were donated by the group. The center also
         received four (4) new computers donated by Outreach Asia. One unit is being
         used for mothers’ & children’s training on Mother’s Class and Story Telling and
         another one for office use. About 10 children and youth were given Basic
         Computer literacy and they now use the computers for composing letters,
         drawing, educational games and listening to stories on CDs.

         The center has been the main activity place for small children coming together to
         enjoy and have fun browsing and reading books, playing with toys and doing art
         works, drawing, coloring and staying there until its time for them to go to school
         and home. Children visit the center before going to their classes for a bowl of
         soup and light snacks. For some children who just arrived from school the
         center served as their relaxation area, while others do research work and
         assignments using the reference books and materials. The center has served as
         an extension of their home as children love to stay there the whole day because
         of the warm ambience of the home and the caring attitude of the staff.

         Presently, Child’s Growth Class is conducted among reproductive women
         thereby learning basic knowledge and practical skills on child rearing, caring and
         proper nutrition. The children enjoy each others company as well as the
         sessions provided by volunteers and staff of GEMS Heart. Children are also
         taught proper hygiene and sanitation integrated with cultural and values
         orientation. Volunteers and staff teach new songs, the latest dance steps and
         games. About 4 regular volunteer mothers help in preparing nutritious snacks
         that are served during the children sessions and parents training.

         With the increasing number of children and parents utilizing the center for
         sessions, training and research work, often times the space is not enough to
         accommodate them. When Child Growth Class with the mothers is on going,
         children who would like to do research work could not anymore be
         accommodated while other children who do the artwork are also crowded in the
         tiny library.

         We are then proposing to build an extension of the Children’s Activity Center to
         accommodate the increasing number children and parents who come and make
         the center their “second home”.

Project Proposal: Extension of Children’s Activity Center
September 2007

         The CHILDREN’S DREAM CENTER is constructed in a 166 sq. meter lot. The
         Center is about 63 square meters with about 22 sq. meters utilized as session
         area/space. The tiny library is about 5 sq. meters.

         The center has a vacant space in front that is presently being used to grow
         vegetables. This is approximately 42 sq. meters and is the area being proposed
         to be the extension/expansion.

         The extension will be an open type building so that the air circulation would be
         free flowing from the extension area to the main door entrance of the Center.
         Additional roofing, flooring, trusses and steel posts will be needed to construct
         the extension. The fence on the right wing of the center will be renovated to
         complete the height needed to strengthen and support the extension roof. The
         front fence will also be renovated and additional hollow blocks will be laid to give
         protection to children from falling. A concrete partition, about ½ meter, will be
         set-up to separate a study nook of about 7-8 meters. The study corner will serve
         as assignment and research area. The remaining portion of the proposed
         extension will be an all-purpose – multi-purpose space for gathering, training,
         meeting and group activities. The entrance will be wide open to give everyone a
         warm welcome.

         The steps approaching the entrance to the Center will be cemented to make it
         sturdy and withstand the increased number of people who will come and visit the

         The staff of GEMS Heart will monitor the progress of the construction as well as

         financial statement will be submitted upon completion of the center. Documents
         to support the finances will be kept for audit and evaluation of Outreach Asia.

         Organizing activities for the parents and community residents will be conducted
         simultaneously while construction is on going. These organizing activities will
         include the community activities for land preparation, and formulation of policies,
         systems and procedures in the use of the Children’s Activity Center. Other
         capacity enhancing sessions for children and parents in managing the center will
         be included in the modules for sustainability.
