Pakikipagkapwa: a resilient Filipino value

Helping one another is a trait Filipinos are very well known for. The culture of giving and reaching out to our countrymen whether abroad or locally is a practice Filipinos have engaged in for the longest time.

Intersect, the quarterly magazine of the John J. Carroll Institute on Church and Social Issues (JJCICSI) in its latest issue titled, “Regenerating Culture,” features pakikipagkapwa as practiced by our overseas Filipino workers (OFWs). The article titled “A Culture of Giving,” imparts how OFWs in various parts of the world help their kababayan back home by supporting various initiatives that help less fortunate Filipinos. Also featured in the issue are articles on the regeneration of Filipino culture, human rights, Philippine environment, Filipino youth heroism, responsible parenthood and microfinance.
