Vice President Leni Robredo poses for photos during the graduation ceremony for displaced women who are part of the Initiative for Marawi (I.M.) Women Weaving and Empowerment Program in Marawi City on Tuesday. The program, which seeks to provide psychosocial, political, and economic empowerment to women and girls displaced by the siege, was initiated by SPARK! Philippines and the Austrian Embassy in Manila, and implemented through a partnership with Sinagtala PH, an NGO that assists displaced residents of Marawi, with particular focus on women and children. VP Leni's trip to Marawi coincided with her 54th birthday.
