Taguig Rep. Lani Cayetano is proud to have discovered creative young minds in the city through the kite flying competition that the city government recently organized.

Cayetano shared in a Facebook post snapshots of the contestants with the colorful kites they made. A total of 25 groups composed of young people joined the competition.

“Layunin ng #ProjectFlyHigh na panatilihing buhay ang mayamang kultura nating mga Pilipino at muling ipakilala sa kabataan ang kahalagahan ng pagpupursigi para sa kanilang mga hilig at layunin. Katulad ng lipad ng mga saranggola, nawa’y maging matayog din ang lipad ng kanilang mga pangarap,” the lawmaker explained.

Cayetano thanked all the participants for their sportsmanship. She also feted Saranggola Pilipinas president AJ Manaog, who shared his time and expertise in kite flying.

“Salamat sa biyaya ng magandang panahon at napalipad ng mga Kite Flyers ang kanilang mga pinaghirapang saranggola,” she said.
