But the conflicts and clashes can shed some light of clarification, and can even release a certain energy to stir us to action and transformation.

PGIN taps youth volunteerism

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos listens to the interests and needs of students from Ilocos Norte Agricultural College in the town of Pasuquin on the launching of "Manang Imee's Sirib Express" November 22. "Sirib Express" is a roving one-stop shop to seek intervention and provide assistance to high school and college students, out-of-school youths, and job-seeking graduates. (PGIN-CMO) By Leilanie G.
