TABUK CITY, Kalinga – ‘They may have matured, grown-up, and self-sufficient, but even in only one day, the child within them was reawakened.’ This is how members of District 1’s Empowerment and Reaffirmation of Paternal Abilities (ERPAT) expressed themselves when they gathered today in Barangay Dilag for a ‘fun-day’ that featured some of the most popular indigenous games.
“Sanggol,” “kadang-kadang,” tug of war, pig catching, and wine drinking were among the games that brought smiles to their faces.
The practice, according to social welfare officer Marinel Dorgay, is one way of enhancing the parents’ function as family heads by fostering cooperation and teamwork despite the problems they face.
In her message, Dorgay encouraged ERPAT members to have a persistent desire to do what is right and what is expected of them by the society.
Meanwhile, City Mayor Darwin Estrañero underlined that, in addition to enjoying the planned events during the fun day, ERPAT members have a significant obligation to ensure that they go above and beyond for their families’ well-being while also contributing to community cohesion.
At the conclusion of the event, the attendees set their troubles aside and reminisced about their happy and innocent childhood recollections. By Darwin S. Serion
