Inspired and encouraged by the family and friends in Germany who have been in the project already, best-friends Steffi Kugel, Katrin Wiedmann and Meike Arnegger were convinced to visit Philippines. They arrived on July 10 and stayed until 4th of August 2014.
First meeting with the scholars seemed to be exceptionally wonderful for them. Like what we do the usual, scholars were gathered together and sang a welcome song for them.
They did the same routine on Sunday. They helped during bread distribution, play games with the scholars and most importantly they were selfless of sharing their learning in playing the musical instruments.
and Meike were hands-on in teaching scholars the playing of wind instruments.
One Saturday evening, scholars were gathered altogether for a “Facebook Seminar” with its theme “Facebook, its advantages and risks”. All girls paid attention to Steffi, Katrin and Meike and they were given the opportunity to raise questions and answers were widely entertained by them.
They were consistent in any field they went through, either inside or outside activities. Clothes distribution for example is not an easy task, considering the noise
and annoying loud talks of many people around asking and begging for free clothing. In the end, they still managed to smile and they were happy hearing words “Thank You” from the mouth of all the beneficiaries.
One sunny Sunday, on July 27, KTEP again prepared a Farewell party and at the same time, a day of Thanksgiving for the three girls Steffi, Kathrin and Meike. It was a day of celebration filled with fun and joy.
Girls love hanging out together and have fun. With the brilliant idea and full support of Eva’s (sister of Steffi Kugel) friends Lorena, Katharina, Viktoria and Theresa, KTEP held the 1st ever event so called “GIRLS’ DAY” on Sunday, August 3, 2014. Saturday appeared to be very hectic; everybody exerted to the great extent of building their booth and made the best out of it.
