Planting Greatness: Organizations Accelerating Social Impact in the Philippines

Written by Mio Borromeo, Pancho Dizon, and Monica Padillo; edited by Kyle Nate; illustrated by Josephine Daluz; foreword by Gawad Kalinga Chairman Jose Luis Oquiñena; afterword by veteran journalist and Wish Ko Lang! host Vicky Morales 

The daily news cycle tends to be filled with negative stories of crime, poverty, accidents, disasters, and other tragedies. While the Philippines has no shortage of challenges, there are just as many change-makers focused on solving them for the better. This book collates the stories of various change-makers, including corporate executives focused on CSR, social entrepreneurs, and non-profit leaders, dedicated to uplifting the nation.

This book is a must-read for anyone who wants a better Philippines, including leaders who want to learn best practices from their peers and aspiring change-makers looking for inspiration for their own unique mission.

In keeping with the book’s theme, a portion of proceeds from the book launch will fund mobile libraries through a partnership with GK's Maleta Library program.
