Read the acceptance speech of the new Executive Director of HAPI:

I am deeply honored by the vote of confidence.

I did not expect to be the Executive Director of HAPI. I am already content in working silently for the service of humanity.

I was one person on a list that includes some of the leading figures of HAPI.  To you my KA-HAPI, I look forward to working with you in our shared determination to cultivate Secular Humanism in  the Philippines. Guided by reason and logic that centers in the role of right education. We embrace the role of sound scientific goals that will improves man’s purpose in this vast universe.

It is a moment of personal honor for me, but also of deep personal responsibility. I do not take this lightly.

It is also a moment of reflection and respect. These are trying times for the Philippines.

HAPI is just one of the organizations that is not afraid to take challenges head on. We are constantly making our organization better with the superintendence of the Board of Trustees and its founder.

I humbly would like to introduce, my background and my experience for this new role that is given to me. I have the commitment, passion, and humility to serve as the Executive Director of HAPI. I have the determination to achieve results for Humanism. I am sure, each of one of us have the power to do so. We just need to be very smart in our planning and priority setting, and streetwise in our actions and should be aligned with the HAPI MISSION-VISION.

The next decade will remain very challenging for all of us at HAPI with the changing landscape of political as well as social climate of the Philippines. I am confident that we shall be successful in cultivating the seeds of HUMANISM and dealing with every one of the challenges or hurdles that will come our way, as we have always done in the past. Rest assured that I and the Board of Trustees will work tirelessly, with my eyes on the goals we agree on together, my ears open to the voices of all, and my heart committed to the goals of HUMANISM.
