MELCHORA Party list shall pursue a legislative agenda anchored on the felt needs, experiences and aspirations of marginalized Filipino women and children.
|Grace at the press launch|
We shall advocate a community of women helping women while partnership with men by providing access to work and livelihood opportunities. Hopefully and in time we shall evolve practices to build a culture of self-reliance, collective work models leading to a community of economically empowed women.
From this day forward, no woman, no child shall feel abandoned, helpless and distressed because the Movement of Women for Change and Reform (MELCHORA) shall be a beacon of hope, a ray of light from whome they can draw strength, courage and succour.
MELCHORA shall provide for a helpline composed of trained counselors, paralegal practitioners for the oppressed, depressed and distraught.
Our mission “AALAGAAN KA” is pledge that we shall love, care and protect our women and children, rich or poor. We shall promote and defend the girl-child’s right to education and provide for a haven for women victims of violence and those living under difficult circumstances. This we will concretize with the support of both the government and the business sector.
MELCHORA also seeks the support of Media to help us disseminate programs and projects so that our women, children and men will be kept informed and well aware of our work both in the legislature and in constituency service.
Mga kapatid at kapanalig sa sector ng kababaihan: Ngayon nap o ang tamang panahon upang tayo ay magkapit bisig at magkaisa upang arugain natin ang bawat isa, anak, kapatid at kaibigan na nangangailangan ng kalinga. Yakapin po natin an gating tungkulin bilang ina ng tahanan at tanglaw sa gitna ng kadiliman ng kahirapan at kawalan ng pag asa.
Babae ako – May karapatan at pangangailangan. Maraming pinagdadaanan sa buhay, ngunit lumalaban sa hagupit ng tadhana at unos ng mapait na nakaraan!
Ngayon ako po ay humaharap sa inyo, humihingi ng inyong pagtitiwala upang magsilbi bilang kinatawan ng sector ng kababaihan---MELCHORA Party List na naglalayong maging boses ng nakakaraming kababaihan at kabataang api at sawimpalad.
Tayo po ay magtulungan at magkaisa tungo sa tagumpay nating lahat.
