    At 9:30 am, the Vice President attended the 1st International Conference on Gender, Adult Literacy, and Active Citizenship for Social Transformation (GALACST) at George S.K. Ty Function Hall, University of Santo Tomas, Manila. The conference aims to engage members of the academic community, practitioners, and policymakers in sharing best practices, current trends, and research findings on the exploration of literacies, gender equality, and global citizenship and their key roles in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

    In her message, the Vice President talked about creating sustainable communities through gender equality, inclusive education, and improved livelihoods in order to shed light on the positive impact of advances in gender equality, and global citizenship and their key roles in the achievement of the SDGs. “So we have brought together all of our marginalized, abused, or underprivileged women entrepreneurs through what we call our Angat Buhay Workshop for Aspiring Women Entrepreneurs. In the last couple of years, we have held these gatherings in different parts of the country to listen to what they need and to provide a safe space for them to undergo successful transformations. We bring in seasoned CEOs to teach them how to become successful in their businesses. We share stories and inspire each other to overcome all possible hurdles. We link them with markets and places where they can get a fair price for their works of art. There’s a lot of dancing, storytelling, and tears—lots of tears—but also a lot of smiles and hugs and triumphant declarations of resolve. This confirms what academic studies have shown. To close the gender gap, at least four things should happen: first, make it safe and fair for women to do trade-related businesses; second, bring more women into the workforce and achieve gender parity in the workplace; third, make spaces for female-led enterprises; and fourth, facilitate equal access to technology.”

    At 1:00 pm, she visited Salam Compound in Brgy. Culiat, Tandang Sora Avenue, Quezon City. Salam Compound used to be a notorious drug haven and regarded as top 7 barangay with highest rate of drug affectation across the country. In June 2017, the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) declared Salam Compound a ‘drug-free’ community after conducting a consultative meeting.

    At 3:15 pm, the Vice President visited Quezon City Drug Treatment and Rehabilitation Center (TAHANAN) in Payatas B, Quezon City. Covering a total of 5,930 square meters, TAHANAN is a health facility that aims to provide a comprehensive rehabilitation service using the Therapeutic Community Modality to treat and rehabilitate drug dependents for a minimum of six months up to one year. TAHANAN also focuses on the role of the family and the community in the intervention and after-care processes.
