Convergence and Unity for a Greener World
TIES Philippines Inc., with Founder Vilma Mendoza and Ms. Ma. Raysolyn Natividad at the helm, embarked on a visit to the tranquil haven of San Carlos Seminary located along EDSA-Guadalupe in Makati City. The primary objective of their visit was to engage in a discussion with Fr. Joseph Peng, the Spiritual Director of Lorenzo Mission Institute, to explore potential avenues through which TIES Philippines could align its efforts with the mission of the religious group, primarily focusing on the realm of ecotourism initiatives.
This visit holds a significance that stretches beyond the surface, as it signifies a convergence of intentions and a shared desire to bridge the worlds of sustainable tourism and religious mission. The serene setting of San Carlos Seminary, nestled amidst the urban landscape, provides a unique backdrop for the convergence of these aspirations.
The outcome of this meeting will hopefully lead to the formation of a partnership that transcends the boundaries of typical collaborations, one that exemplifies the power of collaboration between seemingly disparate domains—business, spirituality, and conservation—uniting with the shared goal of leaving a positive impact on both the environment and the human spirit.
