Our nation is people-built, and if we are to shape our country towards innovation and progress, then we need to constantly reflect on the values and practices that make our culture prosper. I was once asked by a mentor: “Knowing what you know now, what can you do to point the next generation in the right direction?” Hearing this question made me step back and ponder, which eventually led me to see the bigger picture of why we do what we do. What we need right are now are hearts filled with courage and tenacity. Courage to change what is not working, and tenacity to bring innovation to life whoever and wherever you are. We want to be able to influence Filipinos to be doers because of service. To lend a hand to those who are in need, and ultimately, to contribute to the common good.
We are now more connected than ever, and this initiative of building our nation towards innovation is more achievable now than you can imagine. Adam Grant once introduced in The Theory of Moral Sentiments, the economic concept of ‘the invisible hand’ where unintended greater social benefits and public good are brought about by individuals acting in their own self-interests. We have to admit that, everyone wants to thrive in their own respective domains, and sometimes all it takes to flourish is a simple rectitude of intention. Once we learn how to direct our intention to what we are ought to do, the invisible hand can work better for us to help us achieve a market equilibrium where innovation is celebrated and promoted, and this is precisely what Find Kamp is a champion of.
Find Kamp’s goal is to connect Filipinos, and inspire them to form connections they will cherish for life.
We built Find Kamp with the intention of improving one of our country’s key pillars – the hospitality industry. Hospitality is deeply embedded in our culture and identity as Filipinos. It is indeed a trademark we all can be proud of. From private homes, public spaces, up to tourist destinations, hospitality will always be present. We even sometimes compete to be the best host whenever there is a guest or visitor, and that is something you can’t blame on Filipinos because we know that this is second nature to us, and not being sympathetic toward others would feel as if there’s something missing in our identity.
Find Kamp’s goal is to connect Filipinos and inspire them to form connections they will cherish for life, whether it may be to another person, place, or event. Our team has worked hard to make this initiative come to life, and we will continue to do our best to bring the best service to our fellow countrymen in the years to come. Together, we can build a better nation for the next generation.
We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” —Sir Winston Churchill
