Paghahabi is the Filipino term for weaving materials such as textile, mats, baskets. It also means the weaving or telling of stories.
In essence, paghahabi reflects the core competency of the AIJC, ie communication. This competency transmits truth, creates understanding, builds community. It brings together the diversity of warp and woof and interlaces them into a single colorful fabric of concord and trust.
Our e-newsletter Paghahabi tells AIJC's stories. It reflects our efforts to promote understanding amidst diversity through our various communication programs and projects and to build a network of AIJC partners and stakeholders whose stories are intertwined with ours.
The AIJC is committed to weave a community committed to the common good and the best interest especially of marginalized sectors that need the comfort of a warm woven fabric.
