The Scouting Unit of San Mateo National High School participated to the recently conducted UN World Food Programme
Isang Hakbang - End Hunger Walk the World Pilipinas 2009 last June 7 , Sunday , Roxas Blvd, Manila.
The very purpose of this Annual Global Awareness and Fund Raising Event was to address food security for the people caught in the cross fire living in the conflict affected areas of Mindanao , specifically in North Cotabato and Sultan Kudarat.
Ironically speaking , this scouts from public high school , who belongs to low income families , sacrifice their Php 150 week long Baon just to answer the worthy cause. With proper orientation about the event , the proud parents gave the go signal to permit their son / daughter to participate.
