LOVE YOURSELF: a most NEEDED project for ALL
Love Yourself Inc. is a non-stock, non-profit SEC organization, for the Youth, LGBT-MSM. The organization aims to bring to the community the message of multiplying joy which is loving one’s self. How do we love ourselves even more?
DARE to be oneself.
CARE for oneself.
It aims to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS among the youth and key affected population through awareness, counseling and education.
With its mission to be the resource center of the youth and an ultimate vision of a HIV/STI-free Philippines, the project set short-term and long-term goals for the community it serves. Setting these goals in motion are members of the “community” itself, specializing in health care, education, media and digital marketing among others.
The project is the brainchild of Twitter Shorty Awards Nurse of the Year Awardee, Ronivin G. Pagtakhan (CEO/President), joined by friends, Jeoffrey Solas (Secretary), and Neil Bryant S. Calizo (Treasurer), and very well supported by the Directors, Consultants, and The League of Lovers.
Over a period of one year, The Love Yourself Project exponentially grew through social networking. With the able support of a core group of concerned and socially aware youth & LGBT-MSM professionals and supporters with diverse ideas and preferences, the membership has now grown to almost 100 educators and counselors, and over 500 volunteers nationwide from all sectors of society.
Celebrating its first anniversary, The Love Yourself Project multiplies the joy through a series of events starting this July 8 to August 5, 2012.
