Health Programme in Philippines

Our culture dictates that a woman’s voice is never heard during community meetings. So, I grew up and grew old believing that our role is only at home – taking care of children and attending to concerns inside the house.

When I joined CCI’s Community Health Education (CHE) training, I realised that I can be a part of the holistic development of my community.

I got so nervous but at the same time excited when I had my first house to house visit to share what I have learnt in CHE. Now I am teaching three women in our community regularly. I feel a greater sense of self-worth.
