Margarita G. Larrañaga

Term:  1994 – 1996

Through the initiative of our Z Club Committee chair, Elena Young and the Service committee Chair, Odette Jereza, we was able to organize the Z and Golden Z Club at the University of Southern Philippines.

Service committee Chair Odette introduced a new project thinking of the children tagging along with their mothers who reports to the Social Hygine clinic for their regular check up. Hence the birth of the “CHRECHE” – Crying Room and Extra caring Hand for Education. This was a tripartite commitment of the Cebu City Government, through the Cebu City Health which provided the space, the USP provided the day Care and Social worker and Zonta club of Cebu II with its director architect Filna Espina renovating and converting this wing into a beautiful and spacious Day Dare and multipurpose center.

The children and place to learn and the mothers too were trained and taught different skills.

Together with our sister Zontians in Cebu 1, we successfully brought the Zonta Family together. We co-hosted the Joint Visayas-Mindanao Intercity Fellowship at Costabella Resort in Mactan.

The Cebu City Government during its Charter celebration awarded us the Model Civic Club.
