My name is Father Dexter, and I am currently the Executive Director of the (SHEC) St. Hannibal Empowerment Centre, which is a religious organization of the Rogationists of the Heart of Jesus. The goal of SHEC is to empower the poor people of Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines, through housing, livelihood, education, health, youth and values formation. The logo sums up the whole nature of SHEC. It delineates two essential elements: prayer and work. First, the prayerful hands show that getting in touch with God is an important element. This means praying to God in order to ask for holy workers on this earth. Secondly, working hand in hand with the people, especially the poor, together with Jesus and St. Hannibal Di Francia shows another integral element of the life of SHEC. Both prayer and work lead to a more effective empowerment, thus, proclaiming of the Kingdom of God here on earth. I live amongst the people, living simply like them, the purpose of which is to develop solidarity with them, in order to guide them / assist and facilitate them in carrying out their own programmes of daily living.

I have joined Ecademy at the invitation of Lawrence Perry, to raise awareness of our community, and eventually I hope, raise funds for the good of SHEC. I became a priest on January 11 2003 after attending twelve years in seminary formation. I was called to become a priest in 1990. I look foward to meeting Ecademists and enlarging my network and fundbase.
