Kahirapan, problema mo o ng gobyerno?
31:12
Kapag social protection ang usapan, madalas iniisip natin, "Problema na ng gobyerno iyan!" Totoo naman, pero mas effective kapag ang public sector, private sector, at civil society ay nagtutulungan. Pakinggan natin ang mga kwento ng social protection programs on the ground mula sa mga NGO officers na sina Paulo Eugenio, Rowena Padillo at Wilbert Dimol.

Ang hinaharap natin sa distance learning
20:49

Batuhan ng mga kuro-kuro kasama ang guro at mga kaklase, tambayan with the barkada tuwing dismissal, tawanan tuwing extracurricular activities...

16:18

With the elections drawing near, alam na natin ang ilan sa mga maaasahan natin: nuisance candidates sa filing of COCs; LSS-inducing campaign jingles; at (aminin) bagong listahan ng mga taong i-a-unfollow mo sa social media. But these are the least of our worries. Politicians are going digital, and we should beware of fake news and disinformation. But what should we do instead of being worried and disillusioned?
