Skills Training for Children (The Story of four boys who were trained on Basic Bonsai Training)

Rafael Baguio, Ace Rigor Abril, Micahel Dacumos and Luisito Apelado have undergone four (4) months hands – on training on basic Bonsai. They were trained by one of the members of Davao Bonsai Society. His expertise was hired to provide them appropriate training and skills. Since LTCF aims to improve competence and develop full potential of every child, these four boys have shown great skills and interest.

During the first training they thought that it was just an ordinary activity and had no idea how to benefit from it. The training was done twice a week. In the process, they had the chance to design and assemble using their own creativity and imagination.

On later part, the boys realized the importance of time management, love of work and learn that even their patience was tested. They are not just acquiring the skills but at the same time their character was molded.

Presently, they are becoming more motivated to enhance their skills and are trying to explore other possibilities to become more creative and efficient in bonsai making. They now have the perspective to help the organization and the community as well. They have the hope that their efforts may open doors towards opportunities that would help them earn money for a living. They believe their lives will be changed for the better and would have a great impact especially to the children. They still continue believing that their dreams of providing a more convenient life to their families would one day come true, through making use of the skills that they acquired.
