Istorya ng Pag-asa (INP) in the Rizal Library at 9:30 AM on Wednesday, 13
September 2017. INP, an initiative of the Office of the Vice President of the
Republic of the Philippines, aims to direct our social conversations away from
animosity toward positivity by spreading stories of hope featuring ordinary
Filipinos who triumph over adversity.<span></span></span></p>

the beginnings of a partnership between the Ateneo de Manila community and the
Office of the Philippine Vice President. It might be of interest especially to
students taking INTACT and teachers handling theology and social sciences
classes. To be announced during the event are plans to integrate INP into the academic
life of the Ateneo, through the INTACT classes. Doing so will eventually lead
to Ateneo’s own INP photo gallery, which will consist of photographs and
stories of hope of members of the Ateneo community.<span></span></span></p>
