Public Service Need Not Be Flaunted
Public service is delivered even in the absence of still and rolling cameras. Community assistance does not and will never need megaphones or microphones to be authentic and sincere. In the din of silence, and in the shadow of crowds, there lies the true meaning of service to the people.

17th Congress 3rd Regular Session
July 23, 2018 - June 7, 2019 (519 KB)
Of Gratitude and Productiveness by Senate President Vicente C. Sotto III
My esteemed colleagues, the Senate of the 17th Congress is a tale of two Senate Presidents. I was preceded by the young bar topnotcher and politically—pedigreed Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III whose term commenced in July 2016. It was historic and the first time that a father-and-son team served as Senate Presidents. I even served for his father. He was as good as his father.
ELLS - Implementation Bulletin - RA 11310: An Act Institutionalizing the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps)
March 8, 2021 (293KB)
An impact study on the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino (4Ps) Program, which was institutionalized by RA 11310, found that the program did not encourage dependency. Instead, beneficiaries tended to work longer hours if they had a job and were more likely to have a job or business besides their primary occupation. Moreover, being part of the program did not lead to an increase in the consumption of vice goods such as tobacco and alcohol. (ELLS publications)

The year 2020 brought enormous challenges to the Philippines as it faced a volcanic eruption, a succession of typhoons and a catastrophic Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) health crisis.
