Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino puts up registry program; holds essay contest



Agencies, academic departments in Filipino, organizations and language centers who seek the development of the Filipino language are requested to enlist in the Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino’s (KWF) registry program.

KWF envisions establishing firm connections with organizations, agencies, associations and private groups for a wider scope of network and linkages even on the grassroots level. The registry program aims to give support and recognition to groups having common ideals with the KWF while at the same time synchronizing more dynamic and efficient researches on the vernacular and its cultural implications by developing a database, thus, avoiding unnecessary duplication.

The registry program also hopes to harmonize all language-related projects to effectively address and provide solutions to issues faced by Filipino language.

Interested groups may provide a Status Report (inclusive of the kind and nature of the organization, its officers and members, office address, copy of by-laws and SEC registration) and a list of its programs and projects to:

Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino, Sangay ng Impormasyon at Publikasyon, 2/F, Watson Bldg., 1610 JP Laurel St., Malacañan Palace Complex, San Miguel, Manila

Deadline is May 10.

Call  Jomar I. Empaynado at  7362524/25 or 7362519; e-mail  komfil.gov@gmail.com or jomarisipempaynado@yahoo.com.
