A Cordial Invitation to our Friends, Partners, Supporter, Symphatizers
18th Birthday of Babaylan
In May, 1997a new star was born in the firmament of Filipino organizations in Denmark when BABAYLAN DK started its unique existence as the only group focused on migration, women and gender rights. Since then, Babaylan Denmark blazed a trail in its chosen advocacies, helping Filipinas in diaspora, from vigilance in women’s rights, eg. Filipina Au pairs in EU, to active affirmation of cultural parity, overseas voting rights and much more.
COME and JOIN US in our Joyful Celebration of our Coming of Age, our 18th Birthday when we vow to continue working on several fronts : political, social, cultural-educational to empower the Filipina, to equip her to navigate an intensely globalizing world.
Our Birthday Celebration consists of 2 Main Events:
