Thanks to the inspirational leadership and support of Barangay Tumaga Kagawads Rey Luis Tan and Jackie Lim, the women of my barangay have formed an alliance with another in order to address their needs particularly of their families and children.

Last May 21, the officers and members of the Federacion delas Mujeres de Tumaga (Association of the Women of Tumaga) were inducted into office by Kagawads Tan and Lim in a simple ceremony. Almost a hundred women joined this organization. This formally recognizes their rights and to protects their interests as women. What more it will give these women opportunities to express their voice and find a venue where they can pour out their concerns. The organization aims to find livelihood too for the members to make them productive members of our society.

To Kagawads Rey Luis Tan and Jacky Tan, keep up the good work! Tumaga is proud to have leaders like you.
