Two Ilonggo youth organizations named TAYO awardees

Iloilo City (9 December) -- Two youth organizations from Iloilo made it to the Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations Awards this year, 2010.

These organizations are the Pagaypay 4-H Club of Passi City and the LINK. Exe of West Visayas State University.

Representatives of the two organizations received their trophies and cash prizes from President Benigno S. Aquino in a ceremony held at Malacanang Palace, December 9, 2010.

Assisting the President in giving the trophies were Senator Francis Pangilinan and Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma, among others.

Aquino lauded the dedication shown by the young awardees through their innovative strategies to help improve the lives of the people in different fields such as education, health, environment, peace and order and others.

"Lubos ang paghanga ko sa inyo na sa murang edad pa lamang ay mulat na sa inyo ang mahalagang papel sa ating lipunan. Pinatunayan ninyo sa bansa, sa inyong kapwa Pilipino at lalo na sa mga kahenerasyon ninyo na kumikilos na ang kabataan sa panahong ito. May pakialam kayo at imbes magreklamo ng reklamo nakikibahagi kayo sa solusyon," Aquino said.

Another entry from the Visayas, the PAG-ASA Youth Association, Talisay Chapter of Cebu was also included in this year's awardees.

TAYO Awards is an annual search for outstanding youth organizations and their projects organized by the National Youth Commission, TAYO Award Foundation and the Office of Senator Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan. (PIA/LAFrench
