Edil and Albert are organizing the Bago youth to create a website in order to inform all Bagos in the Philippines and abroad of the activities and projects of the Bago youth and the tribe as a whole. Among many upcoming projects where the Bago youth will be involved is the first Begnas Ilocos on October 28 to be held in Candon, Ilocos Sur. It will be a grand, three day affair spearheaded by the Bagos and everyone is invited. More importantly, all Bago youth are invited to get involved in the organization. There are plenty of projects in the works and every helping hand will be welcomed.
