Sharing the Gift of Peace through Education: DLSU Sociedad de Historia

Sociedad de Historia is a professional student organization composed of history majors and enthusiasts in De La Salle University. As Lasallians and as Filipinos, they saw the hardships parents had to endure to support their child’s education while providing for their family.

“The problem is that the marginalized sector of the country cannot prioritize education because of financial constraints… There are a lot of people out there who are outstanding, but they are deprived of their right to study or be given a good standard of tutelage that will aid them to grow as a person who would serve their family and their country.,”said Bim Sagun of Sociedad de Historia.

Quality education plays an integral part in the development of every individual but due to financial constraints, not everyone receives an equal opportunity. Having said this, Sociedad de Historia held multiple classes during their Lasallian Alternative Enrichment Program (LEAP) to be able to raise funds for the children of Mindanao through gifts of peace in cooperation with Teach Peace Build Peace Movement as giving back to the community. “The least we can do is to give back to the community by imparting knowledge or raising awareness towards the campaign for a high quality of education for the marginalized sectors of society,” adds Bim.

Thank you to Sociedad de Historia. Because of their compassion and care towards the importance of quality education for the Filipino children, they are able to show that there is no such thing as a small act when helping other people.  What may seem small for you is already a precious gift for someone else. Maraming Salamat, Peace Heroes!
