C. The Saint Hannibal Empowerment Center (SHEC)

The SHEC has been conceived and realized after a series of immersions of a group of Rogationatist priests and brothers led by Fr. Dexter Prudenciano, RCJ, in the squatter areas of Pasay City, specifically in Malibay, Apelo Cruz, Riverside and Maricaban. The immersion started in 1998 and lasted for about five years, within which period, the Rogationists lived with the people, experienced the community life and became familiar with their ways. They have witnessed their innumerable problems and have listened to their various concerns.

Eventually, as the needs and concerns of the communities were expressed and explored in depth, the SHEC was established to allow for a more methodical and focused approach to helping the communities. The Center was officially established on December 2004 through the setting up of an office in Barangay 165, Rodriguez, Malibay, right inside one of the depressed areas and within easy access by the other communities. This was made possible through the blessing of the Philippine-Indian Delegation headed by Fr. Bruno Rampazzo, Major Superior.

The work of SHEC is inspired by the philosophy of integral liberation of the poor. In working for such liberation, the Centerís ultimate aim is to empower the people in these depressed areas by a holistic process that addresses concerns on housing, livelihood, education and health, and all these efforts to be founded and sustained by intensive values formation. Empowerment in this sense shall enable them to draw from their own capacities and inherent strengths to raise their living standards and live a decent and dignified way of life.
