"Never forget the roots of your family"

A little serious of our mind:

Try to imagine, that your grandchildren can´t speak with you in your language......

Learn your family the language of the roots, so your family - children can speak their language from childhood!

Learn your family the culture of the roots, so your family understand and respect the roots e.g. Mano Po!

Several symbolic ways in which respect is given to elders is in the use of language by calling older Filipinos “Po” and older siblings, cousins, and family friends “Kuya” and “Atee”.

Who needs the SSS?
The Social Security System (SSS) is the Philippines' private sector social insurance system and pension program for retirees. While around two-thirds of its members are regular employees who supposedly get the minimum wage, at least 4.4 million members are voluntary contributors from the informal sector who only pay the minimum premium and therefore get the minimum benefits.
