  KIANGAN, Ifugao, Mar. 17 (PIA) - - Be the light of your homes and start the discipline of children at home.

This was the message of Mayor Joselito Guyguyon during the opening program of the celebration of Women’s Day here with the theme “Bugan. Behold for Change” last March 10 which was spearheaded by   the Association of Kiangan Active Women and People’s Entrepreneurs or AKAWPE headed by Phylis Anudon.

“Bugan” is an Ifugao female name for a pretty, strong and responsible woman as described in ancient Ifugao folklore.

Guyguyon said women should start the discipline of their children at home and not entrust them solely to teachers in the schools. This is in order to reduce if not stop the incidents of juvenile delinquency and children in conflict with the law and mold them to become good and productive citizens of the community.

The celebration began with a parade around the center barangay of Poblacion participated by all the barangay organizations of women carrying placards voicing out their sentiments and advocacies.

Some placards read,  “Husbands, Love your wife and do not be harsh with them”; “A good wife and health is a man’s best wealth”;  “Let us fight juvenile delinquency for a better Kiangan and our children’s future”; “Children obey your parents in everything for this pleases the Lord”; “Babae ay Ilaw ng Tahanan”; “Women are against extra judicial killings, “Bantayan ang pera ng bayan, mga proyektong pinopondohan dapat tayo’y makialam”;”Save Mother Earth, plant trees”; “The success of a man is behind a woman”,  and “Ang babae ay minamahal, hindi sinasaktan”.

The parade was followed by a program the presentation of the AKAWPE accomplishment report, awarding of tokens and certificates, community dance and ribbon cutting of the women’s bazaar which is the project of the women organization.

The women also entertained themselves with Zumba and Cha-cha dances and parlor games. (JDP/DBC- PIA CAR, Ifugao)
