ABOUT THE BOOK
A Gina Lopez comes only once in many lifetimes.
She was a teenage heiress who left a privileged life to become a missionary. She begged on the streets of India and lived among the destitute in the most desolate places in Africa to fulfill her inner longing to serve God.
In the Philippines, she rallied millions behind monumental projects — Educational Television (ETV), Bantay Bata 163, the reforestation of the La Mesa Watershed, and the rehabilitation of the Pasig River.
As Secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, she led the crackdown on mining, closed 23 mines, and banned open-pit mining.
Who is Gina Lopez?
This is Gina in her own words, her reflections, and who she is in the eyes of her family and those whose lives she has touched.
