Sayawmagsikan 2012: Legacy and Supremacy on the Dance Floor

SayawMagsikan 2012 is the newest dance battle created by Creative Concepts Events & Expo Link, Inc. in partnership with AB Dynamics Group Organizer Co. with the support of Association of Amateur Dancers of the Philippines, Hip Hop Organization and Federation of Amateur Dancers of the Philippines  with the theme: Legacy and Supremacy on the Dance Floor. The proponents of the project made this as a national dance contest event to reach out amateur yet talented dance groups from north to south of the Philippines.


PUGAD Home for Street Children was established with Fr. Bong Javines, SDB as its first center director. PUGAD is a six-month processing center for children to prepare them for transfer in the big centers, or formal and non-formal educational agencies.

For the year 2002, Home for Migrant Youth In 2002 was added to its foundation. PUGAD started a new apostolate for migrant youth, or poor young men, ages 17 to 21, who take technical skills training at the Manpower Training Department of Don Bosco Technical Institute. Most come from the outskirts of Metro Manila and far-flung provinces and PUGAD has become a haven where they can study and work with ease and comfort.
