THE Philippine Sports Commission is holding the tenth edition of the Women and Girls in Sports program in Castillejos, Zambales on Sept. 19-22.
“This will be the final leg of the games for this year, in accordance with the country’s Gender and Development (GAD) Plan. We have chosen to partner with the local government of Castillejos for this event,” said PSC Commissioner Celia Kiram, the oversight officer of the program.
Over 500 women and children from the municipality are expected to participate in the four-day event, in coordination with Castillejos City Mayor Eleanor De Jesus Dominguez and Family and Youth Head Councilor Maria Cecillia Felarca-Rafan.
Project Head Judith Laygo said a coordination meeting is set with Mayor Dominguez as well as sports officials from the municipality next week.
