Suriin Bago Piliin

Sa napiling kandidato, sinasalamin ang pagkatao.

Piliin ang karapat-dapat, piliin ang tapat. Piliin ang may pagmamahal sa Diyos at taong bayan.Piliin ang may paninindigan at malasakit para sa kaunlaran ng Inang Bayan.

Bilang isang responsableng mamamayan, ugaliing maging mapanuri sa mga plataporma, track record, at katangian na mahalaga sa panunungkulan.Tandaan, nasa iyo ang susi sa makataong Bayan.

How is God calling me to love?

During this Valentine’s Day, each of us might ask ourselves, “How is God calling me to love?”

We, at the Assumption, believe and teach that, God calls each of us to be a blessing to others.


There will be many tangible needs in our own families and communities. As you are able, consider how you can listen or speak a comforting word to a family member or a friend, to help provide food or necessities to those who are lacking, or to share other blessings with those who are struggling. Even in times of social distancing, we can safely reach out in humility and kindness.

The change and uncertainty of the pandemic can be difficult to cope with. There are many inconveniences, challenges, and frustrations. Let us heed our Mother Foundress Saint Marie Eugenie and remember “ Love never says: I have done enough.”

Assumption College San Lorenzo is honored in new book highlighting the most successful change-makers in the Philippines. 

Led by President Angela Fabiola de Vera Regala, PhD, Assumption College San Lorenzo is honored in new book highlighting the most successful change-makers in the Philippines. 

Assumption College San Lorenzo was recently featured in the new book, Planting Greatness: Organizations Accelerating Social Impact in the Philippines. Published by Bookshelf PH, a publishing house in the Philippines focused on books, eBooks, and audiobooks, Planting Greatness aims to spotlight the best changemakers in the Philippines to share best practices as well as provide inspiration. 

Planting Greatness appropriately opens with a foreword from Gawad Kalinga chairman Jose Luis Oquiñena and closes with an afterword from veteran journalist and Wish Ko Lang! host 

Vicky Morales. While the book features changemakers of all kinds, including social entrepreneurs, non-profit leaders, and heads of corporate social responsibility, Assumption College San Lorenzo was notably the only all-girls Catholic institution featured in the book. 

Represented by Angela Fabiola de Vera Regala, PhD, its President, the organization shared how it systematically forms leaders for social impact, which would be useful for not only their peers in the education sector, but all leaders in the Philippines concerned with social impact. 

Kyle Nate, the managing editor of Planting Greatness, was particularly proud of Assumption College San Lorenzo’s selection. 

“Assumption College San Lorenzo is home to women rooted in faith with a passion for rendering genuine service. As an alumna of the college myself, I’ve seen how the school shapes young women to be socially responsible, working towards uplifting communities in need. Organizations can learn from the way this institution develops a sense of social consciousness in its students, thus embodying a genuine desire to fulfill its mission and vision, ” said Nate.  

Joining Nate on the Planting Greatness team are co-authors Pancho Dizon and Monica Padillo, editor-in-chief Mio Borromeo, and illustrator and cover artist Josephine Daluz. Collectively, the team has worked with all stakeholders in the industry to publish and sell books, and welcomes further collaboration with professional writers and aspiring creatives

In addition to GK Chairman Jose Luis Oquiñena writing the foreword of the book, Bookshelf PH is partnered with the NGO’s Maleta Library. A portion of the proceeds from Planting Greatness will be used to fund the purchase of maleta libraries, which are mobile libraries that provide educational books to under-privileged children who would otherwise not have access to them. 

That the book is itself a channel for social impact is a positive signal to Oquiñena.

“I hope the showcase of changemakers in the book leads to more collaboration among the leaders, readers, and anyone who wants to make an impact. The next few years are pivotal to the development of the Philippines, and it’ll take more cross-sectoral, interdisciplinary approaches to solving the greatest problems facing our nation,” said Oquiñena, who explicitly welcomed collaborations with GK.

ABOUT BOOKSHELF PH 

Bookshelf PH is an online bookstore and book publisher in the Philippines. The organization’s goal is to promote a richer Filipino literature that will contribute to individual empowerment, and in the aggregate, nation-building.

Bookshelf PH thus welcomes collaboration with all book lovers in the country, including everyone from professional writers and aspiring creatives to local booksellers and enterprise brands

ABOUT MALETA LIBRARY

Literacy begins with love for reading. Studies have shown that if a child is exposed to books at an early age, they will have higher levels of comprehension and creativity as they grow. Reading books also encourages their curiosity and love for learning. The GK Maleta Library is a program that will promote reading to poor children who have limited access to books. A suitcase of books is sent to a community where the kids get to borrow and enjoy them for 1 month before it is passed on to the next set of children who will benefit from them.

The nanays, kuyas, and ates of the community will manage the maleta library to ensure that the books are properly used and cared for.
