THE Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (Penro) in Pampanga has joined this year’s celebration of the National Women’s Month.

In celebration of the National Women's Month and the International Women's Day, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR)-Penro Pampanga personnel wore purple on Monday, March 7, which signifies women empowerment and gender equality, as well as justice and dignity.

The event was followed by a clean-up activity on the neighboring area of the office.

IWD is celebrated each year to recognize the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

Penro Laudemir Salac expressed his support on this event and said women are key factors in the success not only in the office but also in the protection of the environment.

“Three out of five section chiefs and ten out of 20-unit heads in PENRO Pampanga are women and they are in par, if not better, with their counterparts in terms of accomplishments,” Salac added.
