                  The Women’s Month Celebration with the theme, “Juana Laban Sa Pandemya: Kaya!” aims to empower women even in times of crisis. The activity is also one of the steps for the FRs to start anew as they embrace their new way of life. The celebration also shows that the government and non-government organizations offer various forms of services and projects for the people, especially the FRs who have already chosen peace.

                    The Former Rebels were chosen as the activity recipients to promote Women's Empowerment, especially for the female FRs who surrendered with their children. These female FRs were considered vulnerable, for they experienced hardships inside the terrorist organization and were not given importance and consideration. The simple activity showed them that there is more than what a woman deserves.

                Under the protocols implemented during the pandemic, the outreach program followed the safety measures of physical distancing and wearing protective masks.
