Cogito: The Magazine for Thinkers

Posted on 2010/09/02



Pinoy Pilgrim Global Foundation Inc. (PPGFI) launched their new publication entitled ‘Cogito’ last August 12, 2010 in a private distribution campaign to select individuals, institutions, corporations, members, friends and supporters of the foundation.  

The complete title and motto of the journal is ‘Cogito’ To Be. To Think.”  This was born out of the idea that each of our key problems in life rests on a fundamental solution, enabled by the judicious use of one’s innate intelligence.  Most people want to ask the questions; Cogito wants to give the answers.

Cogito invites as authors who offer practical solutions that would help the reader think and act, no matter how insignificant the action may seem.  That is our intention, which also explains the magazine’s motto: ‘To Be. To Think.’

The theme of the 1st issue (August 2010) is ‘A port to seek, a ship to right.‘  The magazine contains interesting articles about the global economics, the presidency, the military, the church, nationhood, justice, politics, history and human rights.

The authors and editors hope that each article in Cogito, feeds the mind, and motivates the reader to action.  For further inquiries and requests for copies, email: info <at>

TWH was not spared from the lashes of typhoon Ondoy and about 300 disabled persons fought for their lives when flash floods hit the center and no rescue was available to evacuate people mostly on wheelchairs. The water reached up to their necks and they all have to help each other reached the nearby building and crawled to the second floor to save themselves and the weaker ones. Badly hit were the workshop where 350 people with their families depend for their livelihood. The machines, finished products, work in process, raw materials and the dormitories of the residents were soaked in water and mud for hours and millions of pesos of products and raw materials were damaged.

The funds will be used to help purchase raw materials and supplies so that we can start operation, reproduce the damaged finished goods and sell them in time for the Christmas season.
