Galileo de Guzman Castillo

WHY ENGAGE THE YOUTH? “The youth are agents for change. The youth are the hope of the present and next generations to come.”

Some six thousand farmers*, including Lumads, from North Cotabato and their families marched to the Cotabato provincial high-way last week and staged a rally to ask the government for sacks of rice and emergency funds that should already have been released after the province was declared to be in a state of calamity as a result of slow and prolonged drought.
