In time with the Father’s Day celebration this year, the Filipino Institute and The Global Filipino Magazine will pay tribute to well-deserved ‘haligi ng tahanan’ through ‘The Global Filipino Ulirang Ama Awards.’

The Global Filipino Ulirang Ama aims to promote the values and traditions of Filipinos by paying tribute through a search for model fathers in the host country.
