As we are to provide the help that we can render to our community, it is just appropriate that we should learn all the important things about it as much as we can. We are aware that in order to help, we must have a clear picture of what situation are we trying to help, and so we gathered data from sources that we believe to be reliable. We know that those data will tell us the story of our community.
Data collection proves to be a hard work; It requires patience and perseverance. We went back and forth to many offices just to collect the data that we need. There were circumstances that made it difficult such as the unavailability of the key persons of the offices that we've went into. One thing that has also made it difficult is that some of the data about our assigned barangay are not readily available; we still have to do our own tallying and computations. We've been through a lot because of those data. We experienced going home from the town at night because we finished late in copying the data from the RHU and it was a little bit scary since we are riding the "habal-habal" and the road is steep, rocky, and dark. Although that may be the case, we know we have to endure for great works are seeded from great efforts.
