“My warmest greetings to the Sigaw ng Kabataan Coalition (SKC) as it holds its Intercultural youth Convention in partnership with Chosen Youth for Change, Rotaract Club of [fort] Bonifacio Global City and Department of Labor and Employment.
Mutual respect is the key to building a culture of peace. It is our responsibility to impart this value to the youth so that they may grow as compassionate and conscientious members of society.
Thus, I commend SKC and its partner organizations for providing a platform where young Filipinos from different backgrounds can immerse themselves in the richness of our culture. This gathering will give participants a better understanding and appreciation of the diverse communities that make up our nation, especially the indigenous tribes of Mindanao.
May the meaningful exchange of ideas resulting from this convention empower our youth to become a dynamic force in nation-building.
I wish you as successful event and all the best to your future endeavors. ”
