Junior Chamber International (Jaycees) Manila Chapter donated part of the amount used to build twelve pieces of animation light boxes during the Turn Over Ceremony held at MCCID College Design Room last February 28, Saturday.
Dubbed “Operation Handog Gamit”, the team was led by their President Mark Steven Ong. This activity was a brainchild of Mr. Andrei L. Dy, Project Chairman together with his teammates Paul L. Sy and Romulo (Jay) R. Ramos Jr. Andrei started coordinating with MCCID last year through emails. He then visited the school in December during its Christmas party and was able to meet the administration and deaf students. He then asked for the school’s requirement that needed immediate assistance.
Sir Remberto Esposa Sr., the school’s president then informed Andrei that MCCID College wants to open a new 2D animation course. This program is very much fitted to the deaf since most of them are artistically inclined and very creative. One of the requirements in offering the training course is the animation light box. So Sir Esposa requested the group to support them in making those light boxes.
Aside from the light boxes, JCI Manila donated five pieces of second-hand color monitors. These will be used to replace some of the broken monitors in the computer room. MCCID College currently has 20 desktop computer units in the laboratory.
