Why PH Gov’t should include youth in disaster councils
by/Roy Joseph R. Roberto Jun 01, 2015

Empowering the youth by giving them a voice in the country's disaster risk reduction and management councils gives them significant responsibilities in their respective communities.
It is high time for the Philippine government to institutionalize youth participation in NDRRMC on both the local and national levels. One of the most proactive disaster risk reduction measures is to empower youth by giving them a fair share of the responsibility in making their community more prepared and resilient in the light of disasters.

The Filipino Millennial?
by Jayeel Serrano Cornelio August 21, 2016

When commentators celebrate their independence, creativity, and entrepreneurial spirit, they neglect the struggles of many other youth in our society.
Millennials broadly refer to youth born in the 1980s and 1990s. They came of age at the turn of the new millennium.
But when commentators describe Filipino youth as millennials, they typically refer to a very specific segment of our population. Millennials are characterized as young people who are educated, tech-savvy, well travelled, and cosmopolitan with their choices in life

However, after almost four decades of people’s enjoyment of the cell phone, a new trend has evolved. This trend is called sexting. Others call it a dangerous preoccupation. Technically, sexting is defined as “the practice of sending nude or seminude pictures via cell phone or posting them online.”

Explainer: How Can You Be Half-American and Still Not a Citizen?

Born abroad? You might not be welcomed aboard. To gain U.S. citizenship, applicants might need more than an American parent. This explainer walks you through the laws that surround "Left by the Ship"

If you know anyone who’s applied for U.S. citizenship, you’ve heard it’s a byzantine process. For Amerasians, born in Asia to a U.S. military father and an Asian mother, it’s even more Kafkaesque.


In its original meaning, an Amerasian is a person born in Asia, to a U.S. military father and an Asian mother. The term has sometimes been used to describe a person in the United States of mixed Asian and non-Asian ancestry, regardless of the circumstances.

Several countries have significant populations of Amerasians, including the islands that dot the Pacific Ocean. These countries include most notably, the Philippines, where the largest U.S. air and naval bases outside the U.S. mainland were situated.

Amerasian & Orphan Children Olongapo City - Subic Bay Children's Home -

Subic Bay Orphan Children. For many years U.S. Navy ships would pull into Subic Bay near Olongapo City. Young navy servicemen would go into Olongapo City and find themselves a woman for the night. The navy servicemen would leave not knowing that they had fathered an Amerasian child. Many of these Amerasian orphans grew up on the streets of Olongapo City never having parents that cared for them. Subic Bay Children's Home and Subic Bay Baptist Church under the leadership of Missionary Teddy Fulfer need our help. They have taken homeless, abused children off the streets away from the evils of drugs and prostitution to provide food, clothing, and shelter.
