I belong to the Tausug tribe and I am an active participant of DSWD programs. If not for my involvement in Pantawid, my children would not have reached college. With my participation, I have become visible and contributing member in my community. I have also helped a number of Badjao families who we now fondly call ‘Goodjaos’. I am overwhelmed and very grateful for the opportunity to grow and change for the better as I am also a part of the Tausug community. (DSWD)
