Vice President Leni Robredo, still upbeat on the success of the Office of the Vice President Partnerships Against Poverty Summit held last week, expresses her gratitude for the Filipino’s continued show of support.
In a survey conducted on September 25 – October 1, 2016, results show that VP Leni increased her approval rating to 66% and her trust rating to 65%.
“I’m very thankful for the continued confidence of our fellow Filipinos. This is motivation to keep doing what we’re doing, and also to find ways to do our work better,” VP Leni said.
In her first 100 days, VP Leni focused on reaching the farthest and the poorest communities, to hold dialogues with them to see where they needed help most, and then meeting with private partners and organizations to solve these problems.
VP Leni described her office as a conduit and bridge that links the supply—charitable aid organizations and partners—with the demand, such as local communities and minority sectors.
“We are here to work for the people and we are here to serve them well,” the former alternative lawyer added.
