And when I say limited, that means we only got our knowledge from internet — no training whatsoever. The 3-day workshop opened our eyes and gave us more directed goals in working with the community development in the Badjao area.
We were inspired to do more knowing that there are people around the world who are doing the same thing as we do in our own community. Then Sisters Elsa and Dulcine visited the Badjao area after the workshop.
Sister Elsa visited because she is a Presentation Sister and to validate the things we discussed during the workshop.
She was delighted with what she saw in the community and the total work in general. Early February, we received an invitation from Sister Elsa stating that we were invited to talk at the UN.
No one dared to volunteer. UN seems so frightening! After weeks of negotiations, we all got to say YES. We started processing papers and other necessary documents.

The support that we got from other delegates at the UN was very inspiring. Annie documented the whole event and produced a movie that was uploaded to the International Presentation Association IPA website. Our individual skills and talents made a good impact in becoming a wonderful Philippines Team.
That made our UN experience a memorable one! The highlights of our experience:The Galt Ocean Mile Community Neighborhood Association in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Number 13, 4th Quarter Contents.

Terrorists are sometimes considered psychopathic, and comparisons may be drawn with traits such as antisocial violence, a selfish world view that precludes the welfare of others, a lack of remorse or guilt, and blame .
The consequences of violence against women are far broader than the impact on the women victims. Their families and friends may be affected. In the case of intimate partner violence, there is increasing evidence of the negative impact on children of exposure to violence in the family.
NGOs with General and Special consultative status have the right, among other things, to designate authorized representatives to be present at public meeti. Moderation / Criticism / Exposition / Exposés David Aaronovitch.
Catholics try, rather unconvincingly, to show how conferring sainthood is different in principle to the pagan apotheosis (the process that made Claudius, for instance, into a God), but the distinction doesn't quite wash.
