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.
