DAVAO ORIENTAL June 27 – The Girl Scouts of the Philippines Davao Council has lauded Governor Corazon N. Malanyaon for her outstanding contributions to the organization’s cause.
During the council’s recent visit at the Capitol, Council President Benilda J. Sunga cited Gov. Malanyaon’s generosity by donating to the GSP, some years ago, a four-hectare property known today as Camp Corazon in Davao City.
Sunga said that as of last March 8, 2016, the title of the donated property has already been released.
Aside from serving as a venue for various encampments and trainings, Camp Corazon today serves as a venue for young girls to receive non-formal education like character development, leadership and ideals of service.
“In behalf of the Girl Scouts of the Philippines Davao Council, we have joyfully travelled from Davao City to express our gratitude to a lady who generously and magnanimously shared with the girls in the scouting movement her time, effort and treasure which will become lasting legacy towards the well-being of our young girls, the girls who will be future citizens and model mothers in the next generation imbued with values and life skills as embodied in the Girl Scouts Promise and Law,” said Sunga.
“Our plans for Camp Corazon are all encompassing so that the experiences of all levels of scouters from Twinklers, Star Scouts, Junior and Senior Scouts will be life memories,” she said.
“Through the years, Davao Council has maintained its rank at the top of Eastern Mindanao Region consisting of 13 councils and Camp Corazon is the main reason for our success,” she added.
Sunga said that the council plans to further develop the property which had seen memorable scouting events for the past years. ‘There are so many development plans for the camp too numerous to mention here but someday, we will welcome all of you to visit the area,” she said.
“All these would not have come to be, without the foresight of a lady who has transformed Davao Oriental into a showcase of her performance in the areas of health, agriculture, eco-tourism, environment, education, arts and culture, and an indomitable spirit of flexibility and resiliency in the aftermath of the fury of typhoon Pablo. We cannot cite another public servant whose accomplishment are par excellence.”
Governor Malanyaon, who had served as an active member of the Girl Scouts, thanked the council members for their appreciation.
She said she happy to be able to contribute and becoming a part of a noble cause. She said she hopes that the donated property which is now developed into a beautiful campsite will not only help in nurturing and developing young girls to become responsible and productive citizens of the society but will also allow them to create beautiful friendships and memories.
