Slide 1: ALAY LAKAD CEBU FOUNDATION, INC. Together with its partners Presents
Profile Slide 2: Alay Lakad Cebu as it was known then from its conception thru Presidential Decree up to 2008 was Chaired by the four Civic Clubs in rotation - (Jaycees, Rotary, Lions and Kiwanis).
As mandated the Organization catered to the needs of the under privileged out of school youth (OSY) thru three major programs namely: educational assistance, skills training and livelihood assistance.
In its more than 34 years of existence the organization was able to help many out of school youth to go back to school, learn new skills or go into their own livelihood and improve the status of their lives and community.
2009 marked as a great milestone in the existence of the organization when members of the four civic clubs and individuals with the heart and dedication to serve for the welfare of the youth formally organized and registered the organization with the Securities and Exchange Commission thus the ALAY LAKAD CEBU FOUNDATION, INC. was born.
The newly formed foundation still adheres to the same aspirations and goals to uplift the well being of the out of school youth (OSY). Develop new programs that could cater to needs of the youth of today and make our endeavors responsive to the needs of industry, business and the service sectors. Brief History of Alay Lakad Slide 3: Alay Lakad began in 1972 when the Department of Social Welfare, now (DSWD) conceived and initiated the Walk-for-Cause project in Metro Manila. The project in cooperation with the Boy Scouts and Girl Scout of the Philippines.
In 1973, it was launched nationwide by then First Lady Imelda Romualdez Marcos, who was elected Honorary Chairman. By that time, the membership of the Alay Lakad had expanded to include the Ministry of Education and Culture and Sports (now DepEd), Ministry of Local Government and Community Development now (DILG) Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the National Media Center (now PIA) from the government sector. From the private sector were the JCI Philippines (Philippine Jaycees, Inc), Rotary International, Lions and the Kiwanis Club, the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA), the Kapisanan ng mga Broadkaster sa Pilipinas (KBP) and the Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC).
On May 27, 1974, the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos signed Presidential proclamation No. 1267 which declared every third Sunday of June each year as “Alay Lakad Para sa Kabataan Day”. It enjoined all public and private agencies engaged in youth development to maximize their efforts to help create a society that aims to attain the full economic and social well-being of the country’s underprivileged youth. Slide 4: On September 8, 1986, President Corazon C. Aquino signed Proclamation No. 27 which superseded Presidential Decree 1267, declaring September 14, as “Alay Lakad Para sa Kabataan Day” was move to the first Sunday of September of every year under Proclamation No. 289.
The government recognition of the noble project was furthered by virtue of Proclamation No. 168 dated April 28, 1993 signed by H.E. Fidel V. Ramos a, veteran Alay Lakad participant. The mandatory proclamation changed Alay Lakad to “Alay Lakad Takbo” so as to involved jogging and running enthusiast among the populace (proclamation no. 168).
President Ramos showing his commitment to the cause of the project, donated P1 million during the 1992 Alay Lakad to finance various projects for the benefit of the out-school-youth affected by the Mt. Pinatubo eruption.
Today, the contributions of the Alay Lakad are recognized by its youth beneficiaries, as well as by the government and private individuals and organizations who joined Alay Lakad. It is done in its efforts to underscore its role of truly providing the out-school-youth moral, technical and financial support to enable them to initiate and manage projects for personal development and at the same time contribute to the betterment of their families and communities.
