MANILA, Philippines – How can citizens end poverty in the Philippines? The conversation on ending poverty moved online after the end of the Social Business Summit 2014, which happened on October 2-4 at Gawad Kalinga’s Enchanted Farm in Angat, Bulacan.
Movers and shakers from government and various industries came to the small farm town to share their stories, encourage citizens to do their part in nation building, and urge the youth to become social entrepreneurs. There isn’t any one answer for ending poverty so Rappler and Gawad Kalinga co-hosted a conversation on Twitter asking netizens to discuss the next steps the Philippines should take to #EndPoverty.
From the everyday things like treating everyone equally to problems with government policy, netizens gave their two cents on what needs to be done to eliminate poverty.
