Search For UAE’s Best Filipino Household Workers Begins

The search is on for the UAE's most outstanding Filipino household workers as the Gawad Kasambahay awards begins its shortlisting process. Hundreds of nominees underwent initial interviews with judges on Saturday, April 1, to determine who will make it to the first round of the shortlist. Successful candidates will proceed to the second elimination round on April 15 to vie for one of 12 awards, including the prestigious Household Manager of the Year and Loyalty Award.

Launched in 2019, Gawad Kasambahay aims to recognize the hard work and dedication of Filipino household workers in the UAE. Organized by Michelle Quinto Guinto of CMG Cargo, the event aims to foster development and encourage employers to treat their household workers as family members.

A total of 19 judges from various industries will oversee the awards, including Dr. Aileen Mariategue Villanueva, Chairman of Shades of Pink Society-Abu Dhabi, and Joseph Arnie Garcia, Managing Director for Europe, Middle East & Africa of ABS-CBN. The judges will ensure that only the most deserving workers receive recognition for their invaluable contributions to the households they serve.

Let's all join in praising and uplifting the spirits of these hardworking household workers, who make our everyday lives easier and more comfortable.
