ang pagsugat padung sa bag-ong tuig,
makapatul-id ug may matulingig,

magumikan kini sa init nga hangop,
pag-ila sa kabililhon sa umaabot,

pinaabli ang mga kamot, andam modawat sa muabot, mga tinan-awan gipunting sa mga butang nga lingin,

Patnubay Advocates Language Preservation

Language preservation is very important because when a language dies, the next generation will find it difficult to understand their past culture and tradition.

When was launched in year 2005, the Preservation of the Philippine Native Languages was our secondary objective. However, due to our limited number of volunteers, we focused mainly on the OFW Empowerment and on assisting OFWs in labor, police and welfare cases
