Orfiano currently serving as the National President.
What is Magdalo’s Mission and Vision?
Magdalo’s mission is to create a culture filled with selflessness through service from the members as they advocate social justice, vigilance in regards to crime and corruption, protection of the environment and social awareness. They strive to influence the Filipino society as they instill an attitude of self reliance and cooperativism among them.
Their vision is to have a peaceful nation that progresses and perspires with social justice.
Magdalo’s Core Values:
In reading this, I became very fascinated because Samahang Magdalo’s mission, vision, and goal is very idealistic and I know that it is very nice to hear or to imagine but it is very hard to achieve and to maintain. I think everyone who loves their country and wants it to progress want what Magdalo wants to happen to the Philippines. Now that I’ve read and heard of what Magdalo says on paper, I want to see what they do to actually make this happen. This is why my groupmates and I will visit them to observe (and even participate) in what happens inside the organization. I hope after my visit I too will be inspired and influenced by them and their ideals and actions.
