The Pro Pinoy Project is an idea composed of many things, and made up of diverse people, all volunteers, and scattered around the world. The mission is to take the President up to task for his promised Accountability, and support Transparency in the Philippine government, and to challenge the government where it is wanting, and when it is wavering.
The Pro Pinoy Project recognizes that that is only half of the equation. At the heart of that mission is a deep seated belief that we the people have a responsibility in nation building. Just as we take to task the President and the government, We the People must also be held Accountable for our Country. It is our dream that our piece of the web would be a thriving agora, a 24 hour Athenian-inspired democracy, where people can engage ideas, and be inspired.
It is a crazy idea, isn’t it?
It is an idea made possible by so many people from across the world. Betty is our graphic designer. Mells, and Roy who provide technical support. Clare Amador, Caitan Tanner, and Jim Paredes who were gracious enough to guest write for us. This success is because of Ana, who writes sex and sensibilities; Flow for his advocacy; Clariz’s youthful enthusiasm. Boom for his wisdom, and humor; Doy our resident policy adviser; Mike who was one of those who started the Project. Our contributors: Alexa, Ben, Carlo, Kim, Kay, Marck, Ria, and of course, Toni. It is they, that you honor. This idea is just the beginning. Our best is yet to come.
On behalf of the men and women of the ProPinoy Project — no words could ever express our gratitude for this honor. “Thank You!” to our blogging peers, friends and readers. Without you, there would be no Pro-Pinoy Project. Because you are the Pinoy, you are the ones who will make this project fly, this nation soar. Salamat po!
