THE Junior Chamber International Senate Philippines, Inc., or JCISP led by 2018 National President Cocoy Enriquez in partnership with Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala led by President & CEO Bobby L. Castro, recently launched the 2018 nationwide search for 10 outstanding domestic helpers as part of its Kasambahay, Kasambuhay Pilipinas Awards, which is now on its third year.
The 2018 search has been made more appealing with a 50 percent increase in the cash awards to be won, from P50,000.00 to P75,000.00 to each winner. Cash prizes are provided by Palawan Pawnshop and its domestic money remittance arm, Palawan Express Pera Padala.
JCI Senate Philippines’ annual search promotes Filipino values, loyalty, and industry among household helps, specifically nannies, cooks, servants, family drivers, laundry women, gardeners, and utility persons. Among them, those who have served their current employer for at least seven years may be nominated.
“The purpose of this search is to recognize our beloved household help that contribute to making our lives and daily tasks easier.” said Mike Bulaong, JCI Senate Philippines’ Senator and National Chairman.
Every year, hundreds of domestic helpers join the search. Winners are honored in a spectacular public event. Already, a total of 15 deserving kasambahays have been so honored since 2016.
Those qualified to join the annual award may avail themselves of nomination forms freely dispensed in JCI Senate Philippines Headquarters in Quezon City and any Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala branch all over the country. An accomplished nomination form bears the kasambahay’s awe-inspiring testimony of experience as a household help. These are submitted alongside other requirements where the nomination form was acquired. Forms may also be downloaded on the official Kasambahay, Kasambuhay Pilipinas Awards Facebook page.
From inception, Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala have served as close partners of JCI Senate Philippines in mounting the Kasambahay, Kasambuhay Pilipinas Awards.
