My Batis Family
How women are accepted in Batis Family.
"My Prayer"
"My Prayer": I use art for the fight for women and children's rights. (1/2)

1. Batis Family as my Familial, Safety and Security and Community Resource.

I was afraid, I don’t know what I should do, kept asking myself, what is my purpose in life? I was astray before I knew, That there’s a place for me and you.

I really want to do something that will make my heart satisfied. I want to make a change, what people say about our lives, Women like us are not meant to be criticized, We are equal like them We have our Rights.

Being a Family is not about blood line or race, we cannot measure it, through looking on our face, Family for me is a group of people, building our home by our dreams and visions. Family is about giving your heart, protecting them from bad and unjust.

2. Painting as my Innate resource .

“My Prayer”

As an artist I used this image locally and globally for my campaign about Women and Children’s Rights. I made hundreds of copies of this image, some are sent in Europe, Asia, most are in Japan, also printed in USA Oakland California, and here in the Philippines. I used my printing ability to re print it digitally, and also manually using screen printing. The title is "My Prayer"as that is what I always pray for women, my mind and heart is crying for love, dignity, humanity, justice, freedom, equality and peace.

3. WORLD PULSE and MY MENTOR as my Familial, community, safety and security and my educational Resource.

My heart was filled with Joy, Knowing women all over the world are uniting for the goal that I thought was just a dream of my life. My dream is to make a change in my society, about migrant women and childrens rights.

Raising my own voice, to give justice for women like me who were never been heard. I thought I couldn’t write a word about myself clearly, but with your help I am able to write my story that could change peoples lives, showing it globally through the help of world pulse and my mentor, I feel like that I did it! Because of their support, these women that are champions in fighting for Humans Rights.

I know that I am still learning and needs to learn a lot on how to defend my tribe, but my spirit is positively thinking, and I know I can do it! because of the advance digital training, it gave me courage to speak about whats on my heart and mind, I am confidently standing and walking, because I know my purpose in life, To fight for justice for women and children of my tribe.

Hi Cecille,

I like how the drawings represent your resources, very beautiful paintings that not only represent resources but women in general. Our voices and stories too are a really innate powerful tool.

Much love

Dear Yllang,

You are such a talented artist! Your paintings show the beauty and strength of women so well. Your words of what has happened for you through finding World Pulse, and what you recognize is happening for us all, is such a good reminder of what a special gift this is, and what a gift our words are to each other. "My heart was filled with Joy, Knowing women all over the world are uniting for the goal that I thought was just a dream of my life". Yes, for me too dear sister. All the more by your reminder that this really works on a deep level for us all.

In sisterhood,

Tam
