Update : HAPI Volunteers and Officers

Since September 2017, we have gathered  the best humanists in the Philippines, right after the “law of natural selection”  took place, here is the update of HAPI volunteers and officers. But, of course, we constantly weed out those who are lukewarm and less dedicated to HAPI.

Some were just lurking and observing before, but, the  golden opportunity gave way to more projects and more active participation from people whom we never know would carry weight in all our humanist community outreach.

We sincerely thank all donors and sponsors. Your donation is at work. Send them to donate@hapihumaist.org  or click the yellow donate button on the right side of this page.

I promised to spend my life with HAPI and humanity, since I came back in September, 2017.

It is just right and prudent to take care the society that I founded,  which makes me truly happy and HAPI.  I no longer worry when I travel the world. What else can I ask for? Aptly put, I love what is happening inside HAPI. It is my quiet celebration for my birthday, actually.

Without much bragging, we are truly creating splashes now. Kudos to all HAPI officers and volunteers.
