Giving Something Back to the Country

I am an iskolar ng bayan. My tuition fee is almost shouldered by the taxes paid by the republic. So as "pay back" to our republic, we have to enroll on a CWTS (Civic Welfare Training Service).

For CMC's CWTS, we were required to volunteer (seems redudant) on an NGO. I was assigned to work for the Center for People Empowerment in Governance (CenPEG). The organization is a little bit of a leftist/anti-government.

I'm sure that I would love to work there for 50 hours and it will in some way promote something meaningful. But I don't see it as a "meaningful" way of paying back for what our country had done for us. Maybe on a little way it can, but I don't see it as direct line to the government. I was hoping for ways of helping our country directly. Maybe through government services or simple things like helping out on cleaning Metro Manila. I just don't see it's big impact.

the past tense of quit can be QUIT or QUITTED. nagaalangan din ako nun una, but when i saw naman sa dictionary na quitted is ok, yun nalang nilagay ko.
