Ifugao women urged to be partners for community and nation building

LAMUT, Ifugao, March 19 (PIA) -- More than 400 females from the 18 barangays of this town are enjoined to be partners for community and nation building.


Jennilyn Serafica, General Manager of Lamut Grassroot and Savings Development Cooperative and the keynote speaker of the Women’s Month celebration last week, stressed that women should be instruments for change.

Serafica enjoined the attendees to develop great self-esteem, to believe in themselves and to support other women in whatever dreams they have for themselves. “Let us start change within us, treat ourselves with respect, respect others too and set the sails towards true women empowerment,” she added.

She also encouraged them to make tomorrow a turning point and seek the goodness in themselves. “By doing this, we can now extend to our families, then to our community,” she stressed.

Meanwhile, Vice Mayor Adrian Chaguile enjoined women to be partners for change by knowing their rights including their children to be protected from abuses and to work for community development.

Chaguile also lauded the women for supporting the local government unit in delivering the needed programs and services in the community.

The event started with a parade around the Poblacion and culminated with various contested activities at the municipal gymnasium. Marcelo B. Lihgawon (JDP/MBL- PIA CAR, Ifugao)
