empowerment
empowering returned filipino migrant women

I am an artist and a migrant women and children's rights activist.

I believe that every child, women and men has their rights to live, a life free from all forms of human rights violation.

Being migrant worker myself, I have seen and experienced women and children suffer from everyday.

Leading Batis- Aware, my commitment is to encourage women, support them, help them to stand up, speak up to trigger change, and create an empowered society.

Dear Cecille,

I really loved the way you intertwined your video with photos of you in action with your women's groups, along with images of your art.  Very inspiring!  (It's nice to see you in the video too - lots of great smiles!)
