This project fitted in our school because it helped us, the students, in realizing the need of eliminating poverty in order to eliminate hunger.

Project Elements

1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your Doors to Diplomacy project?

We used a variety of information tools for this project this includes: Our Laptops and Computers, an ECS laptop and a sytem unit; our cellphones; TV stations like: 24 oras, Naimbag nga Morning Kapamilya, TV Patrol News and Ako ang Simula; Radio stations like: Bombo Radyo; a video camera, books and newspapers like: The Manila Bulletin, The Daily Inquirer, and Multiple Books and Magazines. These helped our group to tackle the different sides of world hunger, from the point of view of adults, teenagers, people who have income and people who are jobless. This gives us different information on the risk factors of having no money and food, and also having a lot of money and food. It makes us realize on how this problem affects the mortality of people here and abroad. We thank the people who had given us these materials for this project.

2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your Doors to Diplomacy project both on-line and in person.

First and foremost, we should share our knowledge to other people. The more people who become enlightened by our subject would greatly help promote awareness on world hunger. The more people who are aware, the more help will be given to the population of hungry people. Then, we will promote our site because if they have the knowledge on this subject they want to feed on more. In promoting our site, we shall use different websites like: facebook, youtube and the like. We can also raise awareness by making a simple video that gives the user a more clear view of what it really is. This project has also given us the freedom to speak our mind about the subject that is why people can apprehend and learn from this subject being. Our comments are our strength that is why we keep them in their original forms, for they make our website a lot more proficient in giving users data.

3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?

It raises the awareness of people in this community, they grasped the messages which we are trying to convey and put them into words and actions. The people in our community host a broken bread poverty meal every month where a simple meal of porridge is being partaken to increase food assistance for hungry people. They also give donations to help the poor and hungry families.

4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?

As we stated, the people in our community host a broken bread poverty meal every month where a simple meal of porridge is being partaken to increase food assistance for hungry people. They also give donations to help the poor and hungry families.
