Hi, I'm Micka from the Philippines. Having a degree in Development Communication, I worked in different non-government organizations, involving my self in civic engagements in my community. As I am about to begin my masters next year, there has been a great need for me in continuing my concern for the socio-economic development of the Philippines. As all of us face more questions as to which way the Philippines is headed in the next few years, perhaps it's worthwhile taking a breather and looking at the experiences of another country to see if there are lessons to be learned and that country is Peru ( both are former Spanish colonies and are predominantly Roman Catholic and are in hopes of achieving larger scale economic progress, only to find themselves worse off than before.)
This immersion is a great step for me for my education. But the plane ticket to Peru from the Philippines is quite expensive and I'm afraid I won't be able to do this alone.
I hope that I can count on you for your support to further my education. All the best!
