Organized by: Rexy Josh Dorado

THE STORY:

In the words of the Filipino Reporter: "The Filipino dream, to put it succinctly, is to leave the Philippines."

For too long, Filipinos have been driven out of the Philippines by necessity, by opportunity, by the promise of a better life abroad.  From a distance, we give back, yes, and we continue to reach and to love from a hemisphere away.  And yet for too long, nothing's changed.

Now a new generation is coming of age.  And the record is beginning to replay.

But does it have to?

How can we break the cycle?  How can we reimagine and redefine the global Filipino community?

This June, the Kaya Collaborative is sending emerging leaders from the Filipino diaspora to the Philippines for a summer internship, an exploration of Manila's social sector, and a design process that seeks to bridge diaspora and development in the PH.

Help us redefine the story of a homeland and its scattered sons and daughters by sponsoring one of our fellows today! Read their profiles here.
