Planting Seeds of HOPE

By Jan Mikhael Pating | Posted on July 15, 2023

They say life is full of challenges and uncertainties. The pandemic which is on its closure got so many lives. The ongoing conflict around the world, inflation, poverty, inequality, global warming and climate change are giving great impact to the entire humanity. Indeed, life gets tough recently.

What can you offer to the world? 

Positivity! Being open-minded or optimistic is actually a manifestation that a person believes that the future will be better than the present.

Rotaractors of District 3770 proudly flex the calamansi seedlings they have planted during the conduct of Project TOL (Tree of Life) at Sinsayon Elementary School, Santiago City, Isabela, July 8, 2023.

As we welcome the New Rotary Year with the theme “Creating Hope in the World”, we shall bring and sustain hope to people through sustainable projects, programs and activities that would create an impact to their lives.

We just started creating hope!

Rotaractors commit to take care of the environment. To help mother earth heal from climate change, a tree-planting activity such as the Project TOL (Tree of Life) of District 3770 was undertaken at Sinsayon Elementary School, Santiago City, Isabela. This is part of the one-day Clubs’ Officers Seminar and Training (COST) of the district which was led by Rtr. Jessica Mitra, District Rotaract Representative, together with the clubs of District 3770.

A Legacy in the seedling of Calamansi. Rotaractors of District 3770, in partnership with Sinsayon Elementary School faculty, staff and parents’ association, plant Calamansi seedlings at the ‘Gulayan sa Paaralan’ of the school.

Creating hope is like planting a seedling. We plant seeds or bulbs in the soil. We take care of these by watering and weeding. And eventually, like magic, these turn into plants or trees that would bear fruits and vegetables and later on will be beneficial to all.

Young Minds for the Environment. Rotaractors of District 3770 show the hand sign of this year’s Rotary theme which signifies their commitment in realizing the areas of focus of the Rotary International through service above self.

Expect that life will be full of bumpy roads and difficulties. Stay optimistic and start thinking of a better future by creating and planting seeds of hope.
