Lalaine Magnaye, Project Officer at the Kanlungan Filipino Consortium would like to promote their events for 2016.
I work for a charity called, Kanlungan Filipino Consortium, which consists of four community organisations including Campaign for Human Rights in the Philippines, Filipino Domestic Workers Association, Bahay Kubo Housing Association and Philippine Theatre UK. We help Filipino migrants have a better life in the UK. More recently, we are moving towards helping second generation and other young Filipinos embrace and participate in the community. We have a number of events that members of Phil-UK might be interested in, please do check them out.
Our first event is a free leadership programme which aims to develop participation in the Filipino community by bringing people together and empowering people to address issues that affect us – more info at http://bit.ly/1NjWRHk.
Our second event is a free workshop series from August to December that aims to celebrate Filipino culture and heritage – more info at http://bit.ly/1OdJYPz. The workshops will include a walking tour of London with Philippine Generations, a cooking class with Mae of Pepe’s Kitchen, a language class with the teacher of Philippine Generation’s current run of language classes, an arts class exploring indigenous fabrics and traditional tattoos, and music and drama classes run by 2 young professionals.
Finally, Campaign for Human Rights in the Philippines are holding a fundraising event for the benefit of Lumad children in the Philippines. All proceeds will go towards building 2 new school building and school supplies – more info at http://www.chrp.org.uk/.
