Great Forces of Women in Advancement of Rural Communities

Dr. Luz Taposok extends her gratitude to the rural women of the Philippines for assisting the development of rural societies.

Empowered women of this generation have the capacity to change the world through their own vital ways of developing a society and promoting social change. These were the words expressed by OIC-Director Luz Taposok as a reflection of her utmost respect for the rural women of the Philippines.

Women have made outstanding contributions in the lives of many since the early years up to this date. They served as essential motivators who traditionally have the obligation to nurture a child, take care of the home and family, alongside leading communities.
