organized by Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) at the Kool
Adventure Camp (KAC) Adventure Education Center in Cansomoroy,
“Kool Adventure Camp is the
propeller of the transformation of the people of Mandaue. The program
was able to change our old perception and mindset. We are now equipped
on how to handle the different challenges in our barangays,” said
Association of Barangay Councils President Ernie Manatad.
“I am amazed of the
transformation of the barangay leaders. This is the best training we
have attended. This will help me correct my old maps in executing my
function as a barangay official. I want to apply the learnings I got
from KAC and change myself to be more open to other ideas. This
program is really aligned to the goals of I AM Mandaue,” he added.
“I AM Mandaue” is the
official seal and slogan of Mandaue City. It refers to the
responsibility and contribution of every residents for the city’s
