This past election season, Pinoy Catalyst, in partnership with Moonleaf Tea Shop, launched the #PlatapormaNgMasa (Platform of the Masses,) a campaign that aims to give voice to the public about what they believe the country needs.
With the politicians spouting out their platforms and agenda, it is easy to overlook the interests of the masses who are supposed to benefit from all the 'plans' of the aspiring leaders of the country.
So we ask the people, "If you were the President, what would you do?"
By asking this question, we hope that their answers would point the spotlight to the causes that matter to an ordinary citizen. We aim to make people pause, think, and reflect not only about what the Philippines need, but more importantly, what their own friends, neighbors and families need. We hope that as people ponder on this question, they realize that they, too, can do something for the country.
Our civic duty as Filipino citizens does not end once we cast our votes. Albeit, it is the beginning of a long, arduous task of ensuring that our elected officials and leaders of this country fulfill their platforms and promises.
Now, more than ever, the Philippines needs true Pinoy Catalysts to be the change we want to see in society. Nation building is a collective effort.
At the end of the day, the #PlatapormaNgMasa should always prevail.
This is Democracy.
Thank you for letting your voice be heard.
