Judith Alpuerto
Posted February 17, 2013 from Philippines

About Me: I am a professional woman advocating for a violence-free person, family, community and world. I am married. I have a husband and four kids. I began to advocate for a violence free-individual, family and community when I became aware of the gender issues that caused affect women. I became a member of Family Watch Network or Bantay Banay organized by Lihok Pilipina and the National Family Violence Prevention Program.initiated by the Women's Crisis Center Manila and lately became a provincial convenor of the Philippines Against Child Trafficking here in Negros Oriental. I participated in the passage of three ordinances to promote women's welfare, rights and entitlements, namely: Creation of the Negros Oriental Provincial Commission on Women, The Gender Code and the Children's Code. I conduct gender sensitivity training in the grassroots to raise the level of consciousness of women in the countryside on their rights and entitlements.

My Passions: grassroots women articulate their needs

My Challenges: strengthen women's organizations become entrepreneurial minded

My Vision for the Future: violence-free individual, family and community

My Areas of Expertise: Facilitating, Prepare Powerpoint Presentations, Community Organizing
