Youths launch parol project to help Albay prisoners

LEGAZPI CITY, Nov. 20 (PIA)–Volunteers from the Team Albay Youth Organization (TAYO) will be lighting parol (holiday lanterns) along Capitol Annex at 6 p.m. today as it launches its “#BeTheLightShareAStar” Christmas project.

 In launching the #BeTheLightShareAStar Christmas project, TAYO aims to generate fund for the group’s livelihood projects and for “our brethren at the provincial jail,” TAYO chairperson Alfred Nimo said.

The lanterns are made by inmates of the Albay District Jail.

It is part of the livelihood project to provide inmates with a venue to use their time productively and help them become responsible persons.

Nimo calls for support to the project by sponsoring a star lantern worth P100 each.

 “Interested sponsors can submit the list of names that will be placed on each of the star lanterns to be displayed at the Acacia tree in front of TAYO Youth Center at the Population Management Division Office,” Nimo said.

More details can be obtained from Eden Gonzales at 09163038896 or Aubrey Mae Atos at 09359711448 or 742-2487. (EAD/SAA-PIA5-Albay)
