LoveYourself Cebu conducted its orientation for the fourth and biggest batch of volunteers on August 18, 2019 Sunday at Qualfon Building, Skyrise 3, IT Park, Cebu City.
More than 70 volunteers out of the total 144 volunteers in LoveYourself White House attended the said orientation bearing the name Batch Dasig. It is a Cebuano term which means “Encourage”, as LoveYourself Cebu continues to strengthen their presence in the local Cebuano scene and encourage people to have themselves tested for HIV.
“Life-changing,” as one volunteer, Jude Nitcha, coined it, the orientation was full of informative and insightful ideas spearheaded by LoveYourself Recruitment Team, and facilitated by Jan Vincent Estrada, Head of LoveYourself Cebu.
The fourth batch’s logo symbolizes the phoenix representing the sun or warmth that they will bring to the group. Batch Dasig aims to motivate people to fight the stigma and rebuild their life to be better than before.
Bringing with them enthusiasm and fresh ideas, Batch Dasig warmly welcomes exciting ventures as they join the organization and sustain the energy of the first three Batches — Amuma, Bitoon and Kalayo in achieving its goal.
