Youth group launches #ActPH movement

Posted By: admin On:


MANILA, Nov. 19, 2016— A Catholic youth-oriented movement dedicated to encourage young people to engage in social transformation has been officially launched.

#ActPH, a brainchild of YouthPinoy (YP), says it will promote a vast spectrum of social concerns from the protection of the environment to helping those in the peripheries.

Its launch event took place during the 5th Catholic Social Media Summit held in Manila on Saturday, November 19.

“By using the social media, we have to inspire young people to get involved and act,” said Michael Laxina, president of YP, an alliance of “online missionaries.”

Laxina said ACT is an acronym for “activate, connect and transform”.

“It doesn’t have to be a grand gesture or a major activity. It could be a simple act of kindness or simply choosing to live responsibly,” he said.

Rooted in the belief that “love is a verb” and thus calls for action, #ActPH advocates vowed to engage in community service on issues they care about. (CBCPNews)
