The Vice President for Internal Affairs of the UNYPAD, Tu Alid Afonso, discussed before the participants the organization’s vision, mission, goals, objectives, and programs and services.
“Here in UNYPAD, we used to implant first the spirituality to our members through our capacity building program,” Alfonso emphasized.
“…And this leads them (members) to work voluntarily because they already knew the benefits and rewards they could gain out of it,” Alfonso added.
