An International Project Partner from RAWCS - Rotary Australia World Community Service awarded the coveted Rotary International Foundation’s PAUL HARRIS FELLOW recognition to Past President Roberto “Butch” Guides of the Rotary Club of Metro Sorsogon in keeping with the Rotary’s ideals of significant assistance in improvement of life and better understanding among peoples of the world.

Rtn. Butch Guides is a faculty member of Sorsogon State College and an advanced programming professor of Computer Communication Development Institute – Sorsogon Campus.


The recognition was due to Rtn. Guides significant contribution towards sustainable projects in Sorsogon municipalities being one of the focal persons of the Rotary Club of Metro Sorsogon, initiated in 2008. This is also with the able support of his fellow Rotarians like Dr. Olan Dealca & Dra. Lidu Dorion.


Guides during his incumbency as 2009 – 2010 president, spearheaded and implemented the Water and Sanitation (Water Pipeline Distribution) in Bacon Sorsogon, maternal and child health donations (medical equipments and medicines)with Rtn. Dr Jun Dioneda and Dr Larry Garrido, Basic education (distribution of books to orphans/ public schools) with Rtn. Manny Babasa, Filtration and Sanitation through the construction of 160 Bio Sand Water Filtration units and installation in eight Sorsogon municipalities with Rtn Emily Navarro, and lastly, a Fishpen Livelihood Project in Juban Sorsogon, with significant contribution by Rtn. Dr Anthony Bravo. In all projects, the club applied due diligence and governance led by its Charter President Dra. Babes Janaban.

In addition, Rotarian Guides also went out of Sorsogon and assisted with the water filtration issues in Lubang, Mindoro and in the international front, Australia. Guides promoted Rotary public relations for District 3820 when he travelled to Australia and presented Sorsogon’s BSWF Water Filtration in May 2010 at Melbourne Australia and recently to the University of the Philippines - SIBAT (Sibol ng Agham sa Technolohiya and Rotary Club of Lubang) at Club Filipino Greenhills, in March 2012.

These prime examples of Rotary humanitarian values coupled with public relations effort and sharing of ideas benefitted not only Filipino deprived rural areas but was also shared with Rotary projects in Samoa & Vanuatu.
