1. Background and Rationale
The video documentary, “Iraya: The Charter of Human Responsibility” produced by OTRADEV Foundation (for more details, click here), was well received by the Iraya community, government, educational institutions of Northern Mindoro. The Video documentary provides visual representation of the plight of the Iraya and their response to life’s adversities. Copies of the video documentary have been distributed to public and private schools in Mindoro Oriental and Mindoro Occidental. Copies of the video was also distributed to selected partners in Metro Manila, which includes human responsibility advocates and other development workers/professionals.
However, the video documentary to succeed in its objective of contributing to the popularization of the concept of human responsibility, requires understanding of the concept. The study guide accompanying the video documentary was initially prepared. However, given the variation in the understanding of high school teacher on the concept of human responsibility, there is a need to provide guidance to the educator. There is also a need to provide the teachers with assistance on facilitation methodology, for maximize the learning process for the students. The selected advocates in Metro Manila can be harnessed to further disseminate the concept of human responsibility and ventilate the issues faced by the Iraya. This will hopefully generate additional interest and support to their plight.
2. Project Objectives and Outcome
The project aims to contribute in the popularization of the concept of human responsibility through teacher’s seminars and workshops. Specifically, the project will conduct seminar-workshop on how to facilitate discussion on human responsibility using the Iraya vide documentary as the starting point. The seminar-workshop participants will be selected from high schools in Baco, San Teodoro, Puerto Galera, Paluan, and Abra de Ilog, municipalities where the Iraya reside. Priority will be given to schools where Iraya students are also enrolled. Two seminar-workshop will be conducted, one for the Mindoro Oriental School District and another for the Mindoro Occidental School District. Participants for the Mindoro Oriental School District include Social Studies teachers from Baco, San Teodoro and Puerto Galera Public and Private Schools, while participants for the Mindoro Occidental School Districts will include Abra de Ilog and Paluan.
A seminar-workshop on the concept of Human responsibility will be held in Manila to further clarify the concept and consolidate the gains and insights on their advocacy initiatives. OTRADEV as a membership organization of development workers and professionals also advocates human responsibility.
3. Project Activities
