Strong woman never give up.That's me.I'm came from one island in central Philippines.Single mom of two beautiful kids.I grew up with my adopted parents but when I was 6yrs old they separated because my dad have a new affair with my mom's best friend.Then,I left to my auntie,I forced to be responsible and independent with my young age.When I was in high school I'm a working student,I finished my college through government scholar.Work in various company,but now I'm working abroad as a domestic helper/caregiver.Working abroad,far from my kids is very difficult situation but for the future of my kids I will.
When I was 16yrs old I joined in non-government organization called DSWP.(Democratic socialist women of the Philippines.It's implements interfacing programs to address violence against women,economic marginalization,sexual and reproductive health and rights.Until now this organization is still active.
In Philippines being a single mother is very common.Separated from husband or unwanted pregnancy.So most of a woman going abroad to find job for the future of their children.And the worst that happened when they are in abroad,they experienced underpaid,over work and rape.
In my country I want that divorce will approve in the Senate.Government will provide livelihood program for single mother so that no more woman going to abroad and left their kids.Responsible parenthood.Sex education for teenager.When young people experience significant physical and emotional changes and they should prepare for these.
