AKRHO gets award on Cebu City 73rd Charter Day


Come February 24, 2010 - Cebu's 73rd charter. ALPHA KAPPA RHO will be awarded as the most RENEWED and RE ORGANIZED organization in Cebu

CEBU, Philippines - The Cebu City Government will celebrate its 73rd Charter Day on February 24 by giving recognition to people who made an important contribution for the city’s progress, especially to its present booming business process outsourcing industry.


“We’re just trying to demonstrate that Cebuanos must count their blessings,” mayor Tomas Osmeña said. “Then I intend to give an award to Akrho (Alpha Kappa Rho).”

Osmeña said that it has been a big turn around from where the group was before to where it is now. He lauded the group by having gone to the extent of participating in the Sinulog and showing they have discipline.

From being an extremist who were previously engaged in violence, Akrho have decided to move and integrate itself in the mainstream society, he added.

I think they deserve, and we deserve to recognize them. These are the things we take for granted. Kining mga people na supposed to be destabilizing our community, are actually even helping us now,” Osmeña noting the group’s participation to various activities and projects of the city.
