The Guam Visitors Bureau has added more new members to its Hafa Adai Pledge Program.
During the signing ceremony, 300 people gathered from various organizations to pledge their support and aid in the perpetuation and preservation of our island’s language, culture, and the traditions of the indigenous people.
Those taking the pledge include the University of Guam Professional and International Programs (or PIP), English Adventure Camp, Sports Adventure Camp, and the students and staff of Wasegaku High School from Japan.
Starting in 2009, the Hafa Adai program has expanded its reach to over 500 private businesses, government agencies, non-profits and other entities. Spreading their message of “Uniting in one spirit” the Hafa Adai Pledge Program is more than just a membership.
According to GVB’s campaign program, taking the pledge means to spread awareness of cultural activities and events, “making a difference in the survival of the Chamorro language culture and traditions, and doing everything possible to go local, look local, and think local” throughout the year, not just during Chamorro month.”
