Push for Literacy and Learning
The commencement address was given by Mr. Rey Bufi of the The Storytelling Project and Mr. Quintin Jose Pastrana, founder of the Library Renewal Partnership.
Rey Bufi and The Storytelling Project (TSP) aims to spark hope, inspiration and imagination through storytelling; to make reading an enjoyable experience for children; to start a reading habit; and to instill the love of reading and learning in all TSP kids.
Pastrana founded the Library Renewal (LRP) as a coalition that builds libraries for literacy and community development. Through the LRP, he galvanized existing legislation into implementation. LRP partnered with schools, book publishers, private CSR programs, and other civic institutions to build libraries in Quezon City, Kalinga, Ilocos Norte, and Mountain Province, to name a few. Pastrana is also a journalist for the ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC) and, formerly, Bloomberg TV Philippines.
