Message of the Chairperson
Organizing the different sectors enabled us to view the lens of other women, whose ideas may be different from us. This made us more appreciative of women’s diversity and more mindful of their special concerns. This also made our decision-making processes more context-sensitive, participatory, and inclusive. We are so grateful that the women of Compostela Valley are headed to the same direction. Definitely, we believe that we are stronger if we are together!
Each of us has stories to tell. Many women live with the feeling of being insignificant or not valued, many try to do their best yet still fail in the eyes of the society, some strive so hard and still feel weak at the end of the day, some lost their courage at one point, little did they know that being a woman already makes them extraordinary. There’s no need to please the world for who we are, we only need to respond to our calling as a woman in this world.
