REX Education Empowers Barangays Through the Edukampyon Local Governance Webinar Series

The barangay is the basic level of governance or political unit that exists only in the Philippines. It serves as the primary planning and implementing unit of government policies, plans, programs, projects, and activities in the community. Recognizing their role as duty-bearers, Rex Education and the Center for Local Governance and Professional Development, Inc. (CLGPD) created the Edukampyon Local Governance Webinar Series.

With the call, “Alamin. Matuto. Makilahok,” the webinar series focused on helping barangay officials and local government units (LGUs) in deepening their understanding of their roles as public servants.

“What we aim for everyone to see is how policies and guidance from the top levels of our government are implemented on the ground with help and assistance from our local governments. What we want to leave behind with everyone is hope, borne of the realization that there are champions of education much closer to your homes, and that you too, can become champions of education,” said REX Education Chief Executive Officer Don Timothy Buhain during his opening message for one of the webinar episodes.

The webinar series is anchored on REX Education’s Edukampyon agenda: to champion education and help create an environment where every lifelong learner is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, challenged, and values-oriented. It also values the essential role of duty-bearers from various communities as Edukampyon themselves and contributors to nation-building.

This is where the critical role of the government comes in, as barangays and LGUs share in this task of championing education. As a partner in lifelong learning, REX Education provides platforms like the Edukampyon Local Governance Webinar Series to further push and ignite the passion for service of the nation’s servant-leaders, from the top to the grassroots, so they can serve their communities better.

Study Reveals One in Five Women Suffer from Constant Verbal Domestic Abuse

New research from global beauty company, Avon, and the NO MORE Foundation, reveals that more than a third of women (35%) have been affected by degrading comments made by an intimate partner.

The research surveyed over 8,300 women in eight countries, including the UK, Poland, and the Philippines. The study found that nearly two in every five respondents aged 25-34 are subjected to constant verbal abuse within their relationships – the highest among demographics.

The civil society-led campaign 16 days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence is an international movement that commences on November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and ends on December 10, Human Rights Day.

In support of this cause, Avon and NO MORE are launching a global campaign to increase awareness against verbal abuse and its effects in relationships, which usually lead to coercive control and domestic violence.

Upon being asked if they know where to get help, 1 in 10 (11%) of the respondents reported that they do not know what to do or are too scared to do anything about their predicament. These factors contribute in the victims being stuck in abusive relationships.

Words Hurt Just as Much

Almost half (47%) of respondents have shared that the negative comments usually stem from their general appearance, with 1 in 5 (19%) experiencing this within the last month. Other reasons allude to their partners degrading their intelligence (43%), career (44%), weight (50%), or what they wear (50%). This trend becomes more common for those aged 25-34 compared to those aged 55+ which is only 10%.

More than half (55%) of the women also reported that their partners have deflected criticism against friends and family, which is a common tactic done by abusers to manipulate their victims to alienate them from other people outside the relationship.“Verbal abuse is a serious, prevalent issue that takes a huge and often long-lasting toll on the self-esteem and confidence of those who experience it,” shares NO MORE Foundation’s Global Executive Director, Pamela Zaballa, who goes on explaining that this system, if overlooked, trivialize, or tolerated, can often be a precursor to physical

violence. We’re proud to partner with Avon to promote an online portal providing crucial information and tools to learn to recognise the signs of verbal abuse, find help if needed, and become inspired by courageous survivors’ stories.”

Breaking the Cycle

Of those subjected to verbal abuse, about 16% had sought support, with 30% seeking help from a family member, and 26% reaching out to a friend. Interestingly, a small fraction have also acquired support from beauty therapists or hairdressers (2%), as well as their Avon Representatives (2%). These individuals, who are often outside of the influence of abusers, have become a critical lifeline for the victims.

This is why it became an initiative for Avon to offer special training to its 5 million Representatives worldwide, by providing them a toolkit with access to prevention, bystander, and support resources especially if they notice signs of verbal abuse within their communities.

More than a Woman’s Issue

Most women (81%) around the world believe that more should be done in educating young men regarding their beliefs and attitudes towards women.

In their continuous advocacy in breaking the silence around gender-based violence, Avon and NO MORE Foundation are gearing up to amplify their message in support of victim sand survivors.

The beauty brand and charity are encouraging people to sign a pledge to end verbal abuse. This can be signed by saying ‘Alexa, open the NO MORE skill’ to an Alexa device or online via the NO MORE Foundation website. Avon Philippines has also launched a range of fundraising products, including the Breast Cancer Promise Manual Foldable Umbrella, the Evita Watch, and the Laura Charm Bracelet.

Proceeds from the fundraising products will be donated to local NGOs that support women overcoming abuse including Luna Legal Center, Gender Watch Against Violence and Exploitation (GWAVE), Ing Makababaying Aksyon (IMA) Foundation, and Women’s Care Center, Inc. As part of Avon’s 135th anniversary, another $1.35 million will be donated in grants benefitting NGOs for women around the world.

Avon CEO, Angela Cretu, comments: “Over the last 15 years Avon has made it our mission to end violence against women and break down the wall of silence. We have also introduced a GBV Protocol and Ambassadors to support every associate who may be experiencing domestic abuse, for example offering them access to leave or facilitating conversations with managers.”

Cretu continues, “This 16 Days of Activism we are calling for people unsure of what verbal abuse is, to get to know the signs; for victims feeling isolated, to know they are not alone; and for those experiencing abuse, to seek necessary help.

PCPPI delivers on environment stewardship commitments

Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines, Inc. (PCPPI)—the exclusive manufacturer of PepsiCo beverages in the country—reaffirms its focus on sustainable business practices as it announced its recent wins on environmental protection and stewardship.

Recognizing the role of private sectors in minimizing plastic wastes that end up in the environment, PCPPI continues to practice light weighting to reduce their virgin plastic content in plastic packaging. The company said it had already reduced about 118 metric tons of plastic resin as of September 2021. This equates to almost six million single-serve Pepsi polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles. PCPPI has also saved 36,000 kilograms of carton as secondary packaging through the light weighting initiative.

“PCPPI has fervently elevated our business practices to benefit the environment and the people. It’s still a long journey towards achieving plastic neutrality, but we are happy to see that we are making remarkable progress and positive impact on the environment,” said PCPPI president and chief executive officer Frederick D. Ong.

In 2020, PCPPI was able to save 76 metric tons or about 3.8 million single-serve PET bottles.

Clean-up Drives


PCPPI is also bolstering its water stewardship initiatives through its participation in various localized coastal clean-up activities. The company’s regional offices in Batangas, La Union, Cagayan De Oro, and Davao partnered with local government units and Environment and Natural Resources offices to collect wastes along coastal areas and bodies of water.

The company also supported the community clean-up drives and waste management activities by providing segregation bins in Sto. Tomas, Batangas and Rosario, La Union.

For their part, PCPPI Cagayan De Oro volunteered to participate in the Limpyo Dagat Program of Cagayan De Oro City to clean the stretch of Cagayan de Oro coast. Since 2019, PCPPI is the only private organization participating in the said program.

As part of its water stewardship program, PCPPI has adopted six water-bodies to create and implement sustained and long-term protection projects, together with partner local government units.

 “The company respects water as its main resource and as everyone’s fundamental right. Through these activities, we are allowing our business to thrive sustainably, while benefitting the lives of the communities around us,” said Ong.

PCPPI is the exclusive manufacturer of well-known beverage brands in the Philippines: Pepsi-Cola, Mountain Dew, 7-Up, Mirinda, Mug, Gatorade, Tropicana, Lipton, Sting, Premier, Milkis, and Aquafina.

Sterling Bank of Asia (SBA) has selected San Juan City’s Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) as one of this year’s beneficiaries of their annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, the Kind
Heart Gives Campaign.

Persons Deprived of Liberty (PDL) of San Juan City’s BJMP showcased their craftsmanship in their parol- making project, which also serves as an opportunity for them to support themselves and their families financially. The “parol,” which is one of the most iconic symbols of Filipino Christmas, is a staple decoration in most houses.

“The parol is a great expression of the Filipinos’ faith and hope,” said Cecilio San Pedro, SBA’s President and CEO. “We’d like to take this opportunity to extend our support to the PDL’s of San Juan City as we move towards a brighter Christmas celebration in these challenging times,” San Pedro added.

During the announcement of the activity, Sterling Bank of Asia employees also ordered their own parols to bring home and hang in their homes.

“It is inspiring to see how our fellow employees happily bought their own parols as a way of helping these persons deprived of liberty,” said Dulce Edillor, SBA’s Human Resources Group Head. “From a company-led initiative, our fellow employees voluntarily involved themselves in the project,” exclaimed
Edillor.

PETA DRAMA ANTHOLOGY ON HIV “UNDER MY SKIN” TO STREAM STARTING NOVEMBER 26

The Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) is set to stream another play to cap 2021! In commemoration of of World AIDS Day, PETA, together with esteemed advocacy organizations The Red Whistle and LoveYourself, UNILAB, Inc., and Pilipinas Shell Foundation, Inc., revamps Rody Vera’s provocative, relevant, and heart-wrenching anthology drama on HIV, Under My Skin, directed by Melvin Lee, from the stage to the screen.

Under My Skin was PETA’s last live performance at the PETA Theater Center before the lockdown in 2020 happened – just two weeks shy of the show’s closing. The play is inspired by real people and events, and it accurately depicts the realities, triumphs, and struggles of people living with HIV, while navigating an important conversation about acceptance and tolerance. The show introduces us to a number of characters – Jonathan, Greg, Syd, and Mario whose relationships are tested when Jonathan gets infected; Dino, an HIV-positive teen whose status is discovered through a contraction of tuberculosis; Mary Rose, a mother who unknowingly passed down the virus to her son after getting it from her husband; a gay beauty parlor employee experiencing work-related discrimination, and more. Their stories of love, pain, and acceptance are revealed through Dr. Almonte, who is studying the spread of the devastating virus. 

PETA Executive Director Beng Santos-Cabangon says that Under My Skin hopes to yet again provide a space where various HIV-advocacy groups can unite and strengthen their cause, with art and theater at the centerpiece. “We believe that Under My Skin Online can continue to serve as a platform for probing conversations and reflections as well as bringing attention to and engaging the public on the issue of HIV and AIDS. Converting the production into the film medium would allow for more people to see it – and bring to the spotlight the advocacy,” says Santos-Cabangon. 

“Amidst the COVID- 19 pandemic, we should be relentless in our efforts to address the problem of access to HIV prevention, testing and treatment. It is our hope that this endeavor will contribute in generating greater public awareness and concern, building a caring community and somehow helping eradicate stigma and discrimination,” she adds.

Now is also the time to generate urgent conversations about HIV and AIDS – especially since there has been a “21% increase in new infection brought about by the decrease in HIV prevention coverage and increase in treatment gap,” according to the 2021 data of the Department of Health. LoveYourself founder and executive director Ronivin Pagtakhan says that as the pandemic continues to evolve, we continue to adapt in the name of the HIV advocacy. “LoveYourself has allocated resources to shift our services online including refill for treatment medicines with XPress, self-screening with SelfCare, and setting up regular appointments for health check up with Booking as we contribute to ensuring equitable access of HIV-related services for key populations in the country,” says Ronivin. “We are glad to partner once again with the wonderful people at PETA to make Under My Skin accessible online for greater awareness as this initiative amplifies our advocacy’s voice towards ending the HIV epidemic.”

The Red Whistle also continues to respond to the HIV epidemic by addressing the need for a change in mindset. “Theater has the ability to move people to understand the issue more. We need to shift perspectives around HIV-related stigma and change attitudes towards our sexual health,” says The Red Whistle Executive Director Benedict Bernabe. 

“If we want to change people’s minds, we need to tug on their heartstrings first. This is why the arts is an important and necessary component—especially during this pandemic—not just for awareness and education, but also for behavior change in the HIV advocacy.”

Under My Skin Online is a timely streaming in commemoration of World AIDS Day on December 1. Although it may take some time before things return to normal and the curtains at theaters rise once again, PETA, along with its partners, continue to strive to make meaningful theater on a new kind of “stage” in this virtual era.

Under My Skin is written by Rody Vera and directed by Melvin Lee. The online streaming cast features

Cherry Pie Picache, Eko Baquial, Gio Gahol, Mike Liwag, Jarred Jaicten, Kitsi Pagaspas, Dylan Ray Talon, Dudz Teraña, She Maala, Bene Manaois, Erold Enriquez, Jason Barcial, Joseph Madriaga, Rach Gimpes, Reggie Ondevilla, Roy Dahildahil, Gerard Dy, and Ekis Gimenez.

Under My Skin is streaming this November 26 to 28, and November 30 – December 5, 2021. Tickets are still available at Php 180 for Livestream, and Php 250 for Video on Demand tickets via www.ticket2me.net, bit.ly/undermyskinonline, or through any of the Under My Skin Online showbuyers.

It’s Time to Revisit these 5 Cleaning Habits That You’re Probably Doing Wrong!

Spoiler alert: In cleaning your toilet, thick bleach lasts longer!

Since the pandemic started, most households are cleaning more often to disinfect every corner of the house.

That’s not a bad thing, a clean home creates less space for disease-causing germs to spread and most likely infect you. Take note: bacteria can breed and grow into 8 million copies of itself in just 24 hours. That is something you do not just overlook.

According to a survey, it takes around two to four hours a week for an individual to clean their homes. However, some ineffective cleaning habits can further spread more unwanted organisms in places where they shouldn’t be.

Domex, the germ-killing expert, encourages the public to revisit some cleaning methods to make sure every toilet of every home is protected from unwanted invaders.

  1. Wiping Every Surface with the Same Cleaning Tool

If you are using sponges or cleaning cloths to wipe surfaces, you’re probably just transferring even more germs from one place to another! It’s best to dedicate a cleaning tool for specific places to ensure there’s less risk of transferring.

Alternatively, before cleaning the next area with the same tool, it’s advisable to soak sponges/cleaning cloths indisinfectant. This kills the germs you already wiped off before they even get the chance to transfer elsewhere.

Leaving the Toilet Cover Up when Flushing the Toilet

Did you know that there are approximately 2.3 million germs per square inch on the surface of your toilet? What you probably didn’t know is you might be adding more to that number every time you flush your toilet with the seat cover open. The rush of water launches fecal bacteria (E. Coli and fecal coliform) up in the air before dropping down to new territory – and that’s if it does not get stuck under the rim of the seat.

Next time you do some business, just make sure to close the lid and the rest of the bathroom stays germ-free longer – and do not forget to pour in a germ-killing expertwhen it’s cleaning time.

  • Scrubbing/wiping cleaning products before they take effect

When disinfecting surfaces, it’s important to let cleaning solutions take time and do its job, mainly: to kill the germs we want to avoid. But what most probably do is to apply products, and then immediately proceed to cleaning.

The best way to make sure you make the most out of cleaning is to first clear any dirt, debris, or stains that might have built up over time. Once clear, that’s the time to apply a disinfecting agentto eliminate the microbes that you cannot see. After a few minutes, proceed with scrubbing, wiping, and rinsing for a squeaky-clean and germ-free surface.

  • Using ordinary thin Laundry Bleach to clean surfaces in your bathroom including the toilet

Laundry or thin laundry bleach can kill germs; however, this type of cleaning agent is not formulated to stick on the surface to keep it clean longer. That is why it is not advisable to clean your toilet with the same solution you use to clean clothes.

Domex Ultra Thick Bleach effectively does the job as it eliminates the germs that inhabit bathroom surfaces and gives 3x longer protection than thin bleach when used pure (this is based on credible lab tests!). And if you don’t know it yet, yes, you should be cleaning your toilets daily.

  • Storing cleaning tools as soon as you’re done

After the job is done, most people will probably call it a day and put their tools back in storage. What is often forgotten is you should also clean these tools as soon as you’re done with them. If you don’t clean the tools right after using them, it’s likely to grow the germs you’re trying to avoid in the first place.

Our recommended way to clean tools is to apply a solution of Domex mixed with water, wait a few minutes, rinse, and let dry overnight. Use it again to clean the following day and repeat the cleaning process.

A clean home is a must, and to ensure every space is free of disease-causing germs, it’s best to do it with a long-lasting germ-killing expert. There is no perfect time but now to revisit your cleaning habits and level up your fight against germs with #UnstoppableDomex, especially because November 19 is World Toilet Day!

Ensure you have a clean toilet and a clean home with Domex Ultra Thick Bleach.

Domex products are availableon Shopee, Lazada and supermarkets nationwide.
