Sama Bajaus sa Metro Manila, ipinagdiwang ang Pesta Igal

Napuno ng kasiyahan ang pagdiriwang ng Pesta Igal ngayon taon kung saan nagsama-sama ang mga katutubong Sama Bajaus mula sa Taguig, Parañaque at Manila sa pangunguna ng Department of Social Welfare and Development – National Capital Region (DSWD-NCR) na ginanap sa De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde noong Disyembre 13, 2016.

Ang nasabing programa ay naglalayong itaguyod ang mga karapatan ng mga katutubong Sama Bajau at pahalagahan ang kanilang kultura sa pamamagitan ng katutubong sayaw at awit.

Sa kanyang mensahe, hinimok ni Asssistant Regional Director Jacel J. Paguio ang lahat na magtulungan upang mapaunlad ang pamumuhay ng bawat isa, “Ang DSWD-NCR, katuwang ng iba’t ibang organisasyon ay hindi titigil na magbigay ng maagap at mapagkalingang serbisyo sa inyo. Sana ay tulungan din ninyo ang inyong mga sarili na makamit ang tagumpay na inyong inaasam at pahalagahan ang mga programa mula sa pamahalaan.”

Nagpakita ng talento ang mga kabataan at matatanda sa saliw ng mga musikang Lenggang-Lenggang, Lolay, at Kulintangan. Mayroon ding patimpalak sa paggawa ng islogan ayon sa temang “Pagsasakapangyarihan ng mga Katutubo tungo sa Pagkakaisa, Kapayapaan at Kaunlaran,”

Sa huli, namahagi din ang DSWD-NCR ng pamaskong handog sa lahat ng dumalo para sa darating na kapaskuhan, kaya’t nagpapasalamat ang mga katutubong Sama Bajaus sa patuloy na suporta at pagpapahalaga na ibinibigay sa kanila. ### FO-NCR, Social Marketing Office.

We are with you in fighting for your lives and your future. When abuse happens , karamihan sa atin ang hindi na lamanag iimik, pero ang pakiusap natin; please do not hesitate to speak up. Much of the violence that women endure is kept in private within the walls of our houses, behind closed doors.You must raise the alarm, because that’s the only way help can arrive, You deserve that help, You deserve a better life.In all of this bravery is asked of us.”

Various activities will be conducted from November 25 to December 12, 2016 in line with the campaign that carries the theme: “VAW Free Community starts with me” aiming to further promote women’s rights and equality towards a violence-free environment.###

Angelica Macainag, a minor-grantee of Pantawid Pamilya from Valenzuela City and the eldest child of her solo parent mom was recently awarded as the NCR’s Exemplary Pantawid Pamilya child who bested the other 14 nominees from the different LGUs in Metro Manila.

At an early age, Angelica already had her eyes widely opened with the responsibilities she has to perform as the eldest child, which for her is not a problem, but an inspiration for her to strive harder to achieve her dreams in life.

Aside from efficiently doing her responsibilities at home such as attending to the needs of her three younger siblings, Angelica also excels in school and other extra-curricular activities.

With the loving presence of her grandparents and the support of the Pantawid Pamilya program in their life, Angelica is determined to help her most beloved mother in the best way she can.

This year, the nominees from Caloocan, Pateros and Makati namely Mark John Remigio, Dennine Angela Cabarles and John Marc Bañares ranked as the 1st, 2nd and 3rd runners-up respectively. They will all join Angelica in this year’s conduct of National Children’s Congress.

The nominees of NCR’s were screened by the representatives of the Regional Committee for the Welfare of Children (RCWC) members from Philippine Information Agency – NCR (PIA-NCR), Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), Philippine Statistics Authority – NCR (PSA-NCR), National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) and led by DSWD-NCR.

Being conducted yearly, the Search aims to recognize the Pantawid Pamilya children-beneficiaries who, amidst struggling in poverty, were able to excel in academics and be involved in significant school and community activities that benefited their families, fellow students/ residents in their area.

The Search also intends to highlight the gains of the beneficiaries of the program that facilitate the positive changes in their families towards an improved quality of life.###
