“Matagal akong naitali sa paniniwalang ang babae ay dapat nasa loob lang ng bahay. Pero simula nang naging Parent Leader na ako para sa Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, nalaman ko na mas marami pa pala akong pwedeng magawa at magampanan, hindi lang para sa ikauunlad ng aking sarili, kundi lalo na ng aking pamilya (I was tied up for a long time with the belief that women must spend their lives sheltered inside their homes, but when I started to be a parent leader for Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, I learned that I can do more things and roles to partake, not only for the development of myself, but especially for my family),” said Aling Glomeline.

Glomeline Taguinod from Dadda, Tuguegarao City is one of the 160,000 parent leaders of the Pantawid Pamilya nationwide.

Schools are children’s second home. It is in school where they discover new things, develop their skills, unleash their potentials, and strive to achieve their dreams. But what if both their house and school got destroyed? Should it stop them from learning and dreaming?

For the children of Bantayan Island, it should not. On the morning of November 8, 2013, Typhoon Yolanda made its fourth landfall on this island in Northern Cebu, leaving 253 schools damaged or about 90 percent of the total number of schools in the area. The typhoon may have ravaged the schools, but not the importance of education to the Bantayanons.

Forty-two-year old Sheila Toning deserves to be called a “Wonder Mom”. And why not? Aside from being a full-time mother to four children and a wife to her husband, she also is also a Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program Parent Leader in Brgy. Gairan, Bogo City in Cebu, a manicurist, and a hairstylist. There is nothing she would not do for her family, especially for her kids. So when part of their house was torn down by Typhoon Yolanda, she did not hesitate to fix it by herself.

The aroma of the fried chicken, the piquant smell of sinigang, and the inviting presentation of chopsuey – these will welcome customers who drop by a small eatery in Guiuan, Eastern Samar. The sumptuous dishes displayed are very inviting, especially to those who are already starving. Who would have thought a carenderia will sprout in the town proper of Guiuan after it was ravaged by super Typhoon Yolanda?

This was the key message conveyed during the awarding of the First Convergence Documentary Film Competition of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) held last March 14 at the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA).

To say that Barangay Balao, Burauen, Leyte was badly hit by typhoon Yolanda is an understatement. The Balao Bridge that used to link the barangay to other communities was wrecked and roads are painted with “HELP, NO FOOD”. They give clues to the previous and present obstacles endured by many upland settlers of Burauen.


But while many of the residents of the barangay try to cope with the effects of the typhoon, they did not lose hope in getting back on their feet again. Their initiatives and bayanihan efforts have helped in cleaning up their neighborhood. Working together demonstrates their willingness to regain their lives, relive their dreams and nurture the Filipino spirit.
