Why PH Gov’t should include youth in disaster councils
by/Roy Joseph R. Roberto Jun 01, 2015

Empowering the youth by giving them a voice in the country's disaster risk reduction and management councils gives them significant responsibilities in their respective communities.
It is high time for the Philippine government to institutionalize youth participation in NDRRMC on both the local and national levels. One of the most proactive disaster risk reduction measures is to empower youth by giving them a fair share of the responsibility in making their community more prepared and resilient in the light of disasters.

also known as "Bekimon" and "gay lingo"

is an argot or cant slang derived from Englog (Tagalog-English code-switching) and used by a number of homosexuals in the Philippines.

In order to trace and track this very colorful sub-language called swardspeak in the 1970s-80s, gayspeak / gay lingo in the 1990s-2000s, and now called bekispeak / beki lingo / bekimon (beki lingo + jejemon) in the latter 2010s up to the present, I will try, to the best of my abilities, to document the ever-changing language we so love to use these days.

Jejemon language

Jejemon is a pop culture phenomenon in the Philippines. According to Urban Dictionary a Jejemon is a person "who has managed to subvert the English language to the point of incomprehensibility." The Philippine Daily Inquirer describes Jejemons as a "new breed of hipster who have developed not only their own language and written text but also their own subculture and fashion."

The education secretary admits it's a bad example, but it reflects the reality in PH – teachers must teach in jejemon if that's what the preschooler understands.

Amerasians - Forgotten Filipino-American Children

By definition, an Amer-Asian is any person fathered by a citizen of the United States of America (i.e. an American servicemen, expatriate, or government employee whether government or contractual) and whose mother is or was an Asian national. 
Reports estimate that there are about 52,000 Amerasians in the Philippines. Astonishingly, they are still growing in numbers despite the fact that the Americans have long abandoned the US Air Base in the country.

Explainer: How Can You Be Half-American and Still Not a Citizen?

Born abroad? You might not be welcomed aboard. To gain U.S. citizenship, applicants might need more than an American parent. This explainer walks you through the laws that surround "Left by the Ship"

If you know anyone who’s applied for U.S. citizenship, you’ve heard it’s a byzantine process. For Amerasians, born in Asia to a U.S. military father and an Asian mother, it’s even more Kafkaesque.


In its original meaning, an Amerasian is a person born in Asia, to a U.S. military father and an Asian mother. The term has sometimes been used to describe a person in the United States of mixed Asian and non-Asian ancestry, regardless of the circumstances.

Several countries have significant populations of Amerasians, including the islands that dot the Pacific Ocean. These countries include most notably, the Philippines, where the largest U.S. air and naval bases outside the U.S. mainland were situated.

Amerasian & Orphan Children Olongapo City - Subic Bay Children's Home -

Subic Bay Orphan Children. For many years U.S. Navy ships would pull into Subic Bay near Olongapo City. Young navy servicemen would go into Olongapo City and find themselves a woman for the night. The navy servicemen would leave not knowing that they had fathered an Amerasian child. Many of these Amerasian orphans grew up on the streets of Olongapo City never having parents that cared for them. Subic Bay Children's Home and Subic Bay Baptist Church under the leadership of Missionary Teddy Fulfer need our help. They have taken homeless, abused children off the streets away from the evils of drugs and prostitution to provide food, clothing, and shelter.
