Volunteer for MovedPH

Around November last year, I had the privilege of volunteering for MovEd Org: a non-profit organization that advocates for early childhood education. My friend Aira was the main artist who designed the proposed murals for their classrooms in Navotas. She asked Hannah and I to help in painting the murals. We thought we were supposed to paint a wall each. Nope! Instead, we each got a classroom HAHAHA.

As volunteer artists, we were asked to sketch and translate Aira’s designs to the walls so the volunteers can easily color them. Sort of like a giant coloring book. 

Paint ready for today’s mural!

We used the org’s readily available paints. I think the paint was already old since we had a hard time applying it to the wall. So we had to reapply another layer for every flower.

The back of the classroom. It was a flower explosion!

Some of the volunteers were from MovEd PH, teachers, parents, and some students as well! It was a community effort to help improve the classrooms in Navotas.

Hi Bebs

Aira’s classroom

Huge sunflowers! β™₯

It took us the whole day, but we finished all 3 classrooms!

Teacher, bat nakapikit ako?

Because I love sunflowers. (Excuse the bangs lol)

Congrats to Aira for the beautiful design concepts! And thank you to MovEd PH for the opportunity! We had a great time. Thank you for inviting us. β™₯
