TAMBULI, the Paper of HOPE
Recently, the Office of the President through the Pathways to Higher
Education Program, created a Social Mapping Project that gathered all the
different Social Involvements of the Ateneo de Manila University. One of the
main goals of this project is to be able to see in totality the various
outreach programs that our community is currently undertaking. Another
objective is to be able to share these initiatives with the members of our
community and the general public. As such, a website regarding these
involvements is currently being developed and will be launched sometime in
However since not everyone has ready access to the Internet, the
organizers of this project has decided to come up with a Newspaper entitled,
TAMBULI, that would focus on featuring stories of hope and other good news.
This newspaper will feature not only members of the Ateneo community but also
individuals, NGOs, foundations, government agencies and other groups who are
doing very inspiring work. Another aim of TAMBULI is to be able to encourage
students, faculty, staff, administrators and other concerned individuals to
also take part in helping provide hope to our nation. Finally, TAMBULI aims to
spread the good news that not everything is bad when it comes to our country.
If one looks at our major dailies, almost 80% of the news contained are not so
good thus we often feel depressed at our current plight, TAMBULI aims to easen
up this feeling by sharing stories of hope and show us that we can still make
things work if only we contribute our own little share in nation building.
In line with this, we would like to invite the whole Ateneo de Manila
community to help us in making this vision work by joining us as volunteer
staff members. We are currently in need of writers, photographers, marketing
staff, lay-out artists and artists.
As a special request to the faculty, we would like to ask you to help us by
taking the time to explain TAMBULI to your students and by encouraging them to
volunteer for TAMBULI.
TAMBULI is planned to come out once every two months and will initially be
circulated within the Ateneo de Manila community. For faculty, staff and
administrators who are interested to join, please email us at
pathways at admu.edu.ph.
For your students who may be interested to join us, please ask them to get
an application form at the Office of Student Activities (OSA), Colayco Hall on
or before Feb. 20,2004
Thank you very much! Have a good day!
