We delivered critical meds and relief packs literally on the wings of other nations. Through lent planes, managed by lent soldiers and staff. Here when we needed them most. Our gratitude to ALL the armed forces of nations who helped us during the wake of typhoon Haiyan.
For updates regarding Rock Ed's relief ops on the ground, please just refer to our Facebook page.

Eulogy for Alexis
by Gang Badoy
5 Sept 2009
9am, Santuario de San Antonio
You will never leave a conversation with Alexis with an aftertaste of his ideas in your mouth. He will leave you with a bigger sense of your own taste and your own thoughts. If you notice my testimony for him this morning seems to be all about me - but see that's what he wanted others to do. He didn't want you to remember him or laud his brilliance (though we often do) but no way was that ever his purpose for conversation.
We know you do this before you date. Before you break. Before you choose which shirt to wear. Before you choose which course to take. Before you choose what to say to whom. For bigger things, you do this too.

This summer we are encouraging you to think of your own project.
It need not be grand, it just needs to be original. Completely yours. In exchange, nine (9) original ideas will be funded by Rock Ed through a grant given to us by Havaianas.
A majority of our projects came to be because of the volunteer roster. We understand that this is an unusual route for a volunteer group. Instead of the project preceding the people, Rock Ed’s trend has been people come in first before projects. So, the idea of “Project: FRESH TAKE” is exactly that –a mere reaction to the existence of our many volunteer photographers.
Since 2005, Rock Ed Philippines has been ending its work-year with a mammoth celebration of Human Rights. We hold eight (8) simultaneous events in eight (8) train stations of the MRT line along historic EDSA. ROCK THE RILES is held every Sunday closest to International Human Rights Day. (Intl HR Day is celebrated every Dec 10)
Since partnering with NOKIA Philippines at the onset of this year, our group has been able to provide and sift through hundreds of children from Childhope Asia and the Virlanie Foundation. Having to make the difficult decision of focusing on 40 children with artistic potential and the propensity to learn discipline and commitment in the process.
