Hope rekindles in 2017 as the CESB conducts the Paglaum Training Workshop Batch XIII on March 21-23, 2017 at the Ace Hotel and Suites, Kapitolyo, Pasig City.

“Paglaum”, the Visayan and Bicolano word for hope, embodies the objective of the program, which is to rekindle hope and help rebuild the lives of survivors of calamities and disasters. It is a three-day experiential learning program which aims to capacitate individuals with skills and competencies in providing psychosocial first aid support to survivors of calamities and disasters. Paglaum training graduates are called “hope-bearers” to affirm their newly acquired calling after having completed the training.

Now on its third year, the Paglaum Training Workshop has been refreshed to strengthen its knack towards helping hope-bearers achieve personal healing and be better instruments for bringing hope and recovery.

Participation in the training program, including instructional materials and meals, is FREE. However, the program will be conducted on a live-out arrangement. Hence, participants shall be responsible for finding and securing their own accommodations and daily transportation to and from the venue. LIMITED SLOTS are available. Interested participants are requested to submit the Registration Form through Telefax Nos: (02) 952-0335 / 951-4986 or email at on or before March 17, 2017.
