WASHINGTON, DC – The Philippine Embassy here gave an interactive educational briefing to a group from Kids and Culture Camp at the post’s Romulo Hall to enable the campers to learn about the Philippines, including its geography, history, food and traditions.

“People to people ties have always been an integral part of the Embassy’s mandate here in the United States. Sharing our unique and diverse culture allows these young individuals to see things from a different perspective, and fosters in them a sense of global awareness that contributes to their personal growth and development,” said Public Diplomacy Officer Darell Artates.


In addition to the briefing, the Embassy also arranged for the campers to learn about Philippine superheroes as told and demonstrated by its resident artist, Paolo Galang.
