Local youth, artists, and small businesses have done so much for their communities, even as the pandemic magnified everyone’s struggles. It’s in their little initiatives and in collaborations among sectors that we’ve seen glimpses of the #BetterNormal we want.

Some of these small ideas have snowballed to a broad movement of citizens and micro, small, & medium enterprises (MSMEs), all sharing their time, skills, and resources to help people in their community and beyond. 

To name a few, initiatives earlier this year like the movement for protected bike lanes, the community pantries, and the #Tumindig online movement, inspired so many Filipinos to get involved in actual solutions!
