Fostering Leadership Excellence in Samal (IGaCoS) Kaputian: A Multifaceted Approach Across Parishes

On October 7, 2023, community engagement services extended their outreach to Samal (IGaCoS) Kaputian, facilitating a transformative leadership workshop training at Sto. Niño Parish Kaputian.

Edward James Legaspi and Kenneth Kharl Loqueno displayed their charismatic hosting skills as they delivered engaging opening remarks during the leadership workshop training.

The program, spearheaded by ACD-Community Engagement and Services office, aims to transcend parish boundaries and create a network of empowered individuals capable of steering positive change in their respective communities.

The initiative emphasizes a multifaceted approach to leadership development, participants engage in workshops focusing on strategic planning, conflict resolution, and community outreach.

The goal is to equip individuals with the skills needed to address the unique challenges faced by their communities.

Local leaders believe that by fostering a culture of leadership at the grassroots level, they can create a ripple effect that positively influences the entire island. “Our vision is to empower individuals to become proactive leaders who can drive sustainable development and social cohesion,” said Antonio Reyes, one of the participants.

The collaboration between participants from different parishes has proven instrumental in breaking down barriers and fostering a sense of unity. Inter-parish projects have emerged, showcasing the collective strength of diverse perspectives working towards a common goal.

As the leadership initiative continues to gain momentum, there are plans to expand the program to include more participants and address specific needs within each parish. The hope is that this grassroots approach will contribute to the overall prosperity and resilience of Samal (Igacos) Kaputian.

In a time where community solidarity is crucial, initiatives like these serve as beacons of inspiration, illustrating the potential for positive change when individuals come together with a shared vision for a better future
