Cebu Normal University endeavors and commits to improving the social well-being of its
partnered community through a program called E-HELP (Education, Health, Livelihood, and
Peace). The University knows no boundaries in extending its support to the community even
though it has driven a global shift in meetings and events, switching from face-to-face gatherings
to a more virtual approach.
Priming towards sustainable results, the 2-day program started with the presentation of the
Barangay Development Plan of the Barangay Captains of Gaas, Sunog, and Nangka Balamban,
Caputatan Norte, Medellin, and Pulpugan, Consolacion.
With a strong initiative to strengthen the impact of the partnered community, the program was
graced by the presence of the significant evaluators, to wit. The Education Supervisor Program
Specialist of CHED Region VII, Dr. Josefino Ronquillo. The Director of Extension Services of
Cebu Technological University, Dr. Jorelyn Concepcion. The Director of Extension Division of
the University of Southern Philippines, Dr. Mervin G. Gascon. And Dr. Elias G. Tecson, a
Project Development Officer.
The pilot session focused on the salient objective of providing for the needs of the community
through participatory planning and creating a development plan.
The fruitful collaboration continues on the 2nd day of the program as the CNU Balamban and Medellin Campus, College of Nursing and Medicine, School of Arts, School of Sciences, and College of Teacher Education presented their Extension Projects and were deliberately reviewed.
The program ended propitiously to transform society through relevant initiatives of the Research and Extension Services in coordination with the esteemed practitioners, partnered community, and in-line agencies.
