Tanya Lat, Program Officer for Formation (Social Programs) Ateneo de Manila University Law School, Executive Director for Association of Law Schools, Professor at Ateneo posted a photo on her facebook commenting: The Philippine delegation is all smiles as we pose for a group picture with our volunteers at the close of the 2015 International Folk Art Market. We had a good run this year! Already looking forward to next year’s IFAM. smile emoticon — with Andy Moran, Bernadeth Ofong, Anna India Legaspi, Beng Ronquillo-Camba, Noi Quesada and Ruth P. Canlasin Santa Fe, New MexicoAsk us Filipinos what our most pressing problem is and most of us will respond — poverty. We have equated the term “poverty” to “economic poverty” or “poverty of money”; the solution of which is to “make money.”

ignacio de loyola & one Meralco foundationIn Filipino, the word we use to mean “making money” is “hanapbuhay” — another term robbed so much of its richness. Literal translation of hanapbuhay is search-life but common usage has been to search (just) money.

Cumagun 117 Bonanza St. Rancho Estate 2 Marikina City 1181 PhilippinesHaving been a Filipino for half a century, I have come to know that our poverty is not just poverty of money but also poverty of meaning. What we Filipinos should be doing is applying “hanapbuhay” to the deepest sense of its meaning — to search for life.

To solve our most pressing problem, we Filipinos should learn how to make both money and meaning.

    1. Thank you Sheila for expressing your uncertainty as to where I get my information on making money and meaning. A large part of the information comes from reflecting on the ordinary lives of my fellow Filipinos. The technical aspects of finance I collect from the experts on business and finance. I, too, need to keep understanding so this blog could be of better service. Let me know how I can be of service to your mission. Sincerely, Rom
