Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Muntinlupa City is a Highly Urbanized City (HUC) that is located in the south of Metro Manila, and is easily accessible from the provinces of Laguna, Batangas, Quezon, and all areas in Metro Manila. The city consists of two districts and nine barangays: Alabang, Ayala Alabang, Bayanan, Buli, Cupang, Poblacion, Putatan, Sucat, and Tunasan. Due to its urbanization and eco-friendliness, it was coined as the 'Emerald City,' which adhered to the city’s mission. Along with the mission to participate in environmental protection and economic development, Muntinlupa also aims to protect every person, provide quality social services, and institutionalize community participation. In line with those, Muntinlupa has several departments and offices that help develop the city and its citizens, prioritizing children not only by creating organizations and projects catered towards them, but also allowing youth representatives to take action with the guidance of the city’s governors.

2. Summary of Our Project

The Muntinlupa City Council for the Protection of Children (MCCPC), a City Government body, is pioneering the future of youth. The Council was established in December 2002 by Ordinance 02 - 073, with the objective of promoting stronger deterrent and particular protection against child abuse, exploitation, and other penalties specified in the Ordinance. The council, made up of 9 representatives from the city's coast and other barangays, works to promote children's rights through the council's many main features of Protection, Participation, Development, and Survival. These delegates collaborate to develop and protect children's rights while also ensuring happiness in a child's grin throughout their lives. In line with this, our project seeks to highlight the efforts, programs, and other accomplishments that this council has prepared and implemented in order to align with the city's vision of becoming a city of well-educated, healthy, and God-loving people living peacefully in an ever-changing and resilient community.

E. Additional comments concerning your computer and/or Internet access (Optional):

Our school has been provided with internet access for 20 years, and we utilized rooms with internet connection such as the school library and computer laboratory for working on our project. Aside from technology and facilities that were provided by our school, the team also made use of their respective devices and internet connection at home. The team is divided into the designing team and the writing team in order to finish tasks efficiently, but each member was not limited to only doing the tasks of their assigned roles. We used social media platforms such as Messenger in order to communicate with each other during non-school hours but held our official meetings face to face at school. For all the information and documents our team needed, we created shared google drive folders and documents in order to collaborate and work on each segment of the project together.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

A recurring problem we experienced during the creation of our project is regarding the conflict of schedule of our team. Our members consist of students from different grade levels, making it difficult to hold meetings that everyone could attend, but we found a solution through utilizing a shared common time in which we don’t have any major subjects for our meeting schedules. Similar to the first problem we encountered, there was also a conflict in our meetings due to the amount of school events we had. Despite the hectic schedule and events held by the school, our team was able to finish assigned tasks and hold meetings through practicing task management, delegating tasks, and utilizing our time properly. Our last encountered problem was for the contact persons we needed in order to make our project possible. We needed to communicate with government officials, hold meetings, and ask for resources, and we managed to accomplish this through communicating with different departments by sending letters and having a lot of patience with the process. Despite all the obstacles, our team continued to adjust and prioritize the project through constant communication and determination.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

In participating in the International Schools Cyberfair, our team discovered the programs our city has made for the protection and inclusion of Muntinlupeño children. Equipped with grit and growth mindset and through collaboration with the city government and school, we were able to build a sense of unity with our community and promote safety, protection, development, and participation for children in our city.

This participation served as a means for positive change within our community, exemplifying the power of collaboration, resilience, and a shared vision in fostering a brighter future for the children of Muntinlupa. Working together has paved the way for every child in our city to thrive and succeed.

6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?

The content standards addressed by the CyberFair project are the abilities of our members and organizers to achieve our goal of spreading our knowledge of what we know to protect citizens and children alike. We use our knowledge to promote education and goodwill, along with the teaching of our values influenced by our school’s mission and vision.

Our project aligns with our school’s mission and vision, along with the focus of developing learners with the A.V.I.D (Academic Excellence, Values Excellence, Interpersonal Sensitivity, Drive and Discipline). These values are interpreted as our code of conduct and have influenced our project to serve as extension of our principles.

Project Elements

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

The applications that made this project possible are through the following: Google Drive, Google Docs, and Google Sites. These applications helped in the making of our website, organization of resources, and the documentation of the project. The Google Drive folders contain the materials and documentation of our meetings and progress, Google Docs is where we have shared collaborative documents, and lastly, Google Sites is the platform that allows us to create a web page that displays all our content easily.

All the tools that we used are from our resources without any donations. Our resources were collected by our passionate members and used digital technologies such as our devices to provide a platform with the use of online applications. These online applications, such as the Google Sites, and Canva are free and are easily accessible.

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

In order for our Cyberfair team to accurately advocate and present information for the Muntinlupa City Council for the Protection of Children (MCCPC), we conducted many meetings and interviews with the officers of MCCPC. Through these interviews and meetings, we were able to gain more insight on what we are advocating for, as well as physical documents we could use for our web page.

Aside from in-person situations, our team also communicated with MCCPC officers online through text messages and sharing of online documents. Through this method, it became more efficient and easier to communicate with others because we did not need to constantly meet in person which gave way to our respective schedules.

Our project falls under the third category of the International Schools Cyberfair which is Local Businesses and Organizations. Because of that, our Cyberfair team made sure to visit the MCCPC office and speak directly about the organization’s background, advocacy, and projects to display in our webpage. Other than the MCCPC office, we were also able to visit each barangay in our city in order to speak to the child representatives of the council. Because of this, we were able to act not only as ambassadors of MCCPC through the creation and development of our website, but also act as the spokesperson for the International Schools Cyberfair through presenting our website to MCCPC officers and informing them of its purpose.

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

Our project will make a difference because it focuses on Muntinlupa projects catered towards children which people can view and learn about. Through awareness of the vision, mission, and programs of the council, we will be able to use our website to advocate for the main four rights of children and encourage people to support and volunteer for the cause we’re featuring. This allows citizens to become more educated and to be more included in the end goal to protect not only Muntinlupeño children, but children all around the Philippines.

Our web page contains information regarding the background, vision, mission, and programs conducted by the Muntinlupa City Council for the Protection of Children (MCCPC) which most citizens aren’t familiar with. A citizen can learn a lot about what MCCPC advocates for and how the council can make a difference in our community.

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

The creation of our web page wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the chairpersons of the Muntinlupa City Council for the Protection of Children (MCCPC) and child representatives of each barangay. We needed a lot of private documents and pictures that we wouldn’t have been able to find on our own. Their contributions include things such as accomplishment reports, documentation, and brand kits that greatly aided in the development of our project.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

During and after the creation and development of our website, we discovered a lot about our city and different values to uphold. We were surprised to learn about how much our city has been doing for the survival, protection, development, and participation of our generation. There's actually a lot we didn't know about our city before starting this project and while trying to create this webpage to display our learnings, we learned to work as a team. No further action can be taken if one person doesn't do their part, that was the main lesson we learned. Teamwork was essential to make this project possible and we grew not only as individuals but also as a team once we learned to overcome the obstacles that came with working on a big project together. We did not receive other awards from this, but we have been recognized by our peers and by our city for our continuous efforts to promote Muntinlupa and show appreciate and pride for our city.
