“The awards program focuses on the importance and dignity of the loyal household service workers or kasambahays and draws inspirational lessons from their simple lives and daily accomplishments. Through this endeavor, the kasambahays’ worth will be fully appreciated and they will emerge as duly recognized partners in the Filipino home and society.” said Bobby L.
