The coronavirus pandemic has unexpectedly imposed house arrest for most of us, drastically changing the landscape of our economy and social well-being. Needless to say, it’s been challenging for everyone and many are left barely making ends meet.
Because of the situation, Dagohoy Academy sought to spark inspiration and positive notes to everyone by hosting webinars and interviews every weekend, Saturday and Sunday. The webinars and interviews featured key people from different industries who shared their unique stories of success as well as life skills from their fields of expertise.
Dagohoy Academy is an online consultancy company that aims to create a channel of stories that will transform the mindset of people into a fully empowered, equipped and engaged individuals and most importantly, to bring out their full potential through life stories and lectures shared by our accomplished guest speakers. To name a few, we had DJ and Podcaster Patty Tiu, Strength & Conditioning Coach of several national teams and athletes Coach Chappy Callanta, professional athlete and sportscaster Sel Guevarra, and our very own Olympian Hidilyn Diaz.
Since its beginnings in April 2020, we have grown into a community of more than 200 members in our Facebook group and more than 1,000 followers on our Dagohoy Academy and Dagohoy Academy Sports and Coaching Development Facebook pages combined. Most recently, the ASEAN Youth Organization has partnered with us in taking steps to support their cause in empowering the youth and forwarding UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
We have also initiated drives to provide PPEs to over 300 healthcare workers and 4 hospitals, essential packs for 325 garbage collectors, and an education drive through book donations for the children in Aparri—the latter two still ongoing.
As the virus doesn’t intend to leave us anytime soon, we will be hosting a new series of interviews next month called Co-Navigating with the Coronavirus to feature guests who can help our fellow countrymen Navigate in the New Normal.
These are the topics that we will be having for the month of September every Saturday at 4:30 PM and Sunday at 4:00 PM:
