Bataan Gov Garcia joins Abucay Mayor, KWF chief in Bahay-Wika launch
Bataan Governor Albert Garcia and Komisyon ng Wikang Filipino (KWF) chairman Virgilio Almario led the launching last week of the country’s first ever Bahay-Wika in Abucay town.
The Bahay-Wika is a Language Immersion Program that is the first of its kind aimed at language revitalization in the Philippines.
Abucay Mayor Liberato Santiago, Jr. and tribal chieftain Rosita Sison of the Ayta Magbukun community, where the program was launched, took part in the event held on Sept. 27.
A Bahay-Wika building was erected to serve as the classroom of Aeta children where they can learn the Mabukun language.
“Tampok sa inagurasyon ay ang ritwal ng pasasalamat sa pangunguna ng Ayta Magbukun elders,” the KWF said.
Aside from delivering a speech, Garcia also led the ribbon cutting, together with Almario, Santiago and Sison.(END)
