The Legacy of Bobby Aboitiz

Bobby believed that each one of us has a paddle or bugsay, that they can use to direct their destiny. With the bugsay, one can either choose to maximize his potentials and take on opportunities, or remain motionless or move in circles without any focus or direction. This is the Bugsay philosophy, the guiding light of Bobby’s leadership.

“Arafat died with 750 million US dollars in his personal estate. Had it not been for the creation of the State of Israel, he would have been known to his mother at most. The Jews had been forgotten before World War II. Where is the Coptic Church, anybody? Who would give a care about the Mossad?”

Building a future from livelihood starter kits

At the core of every successful community is a group of people working hand-in-hand towards a single vision.
