    Our office is in Quezon city . our foundation is supporting the mission and formation of a religious congregation. We are new to this initiative thus we are still really learning how we can run this foundation that is more sustainable, efficient and effective for our recipients. Currently I am appointed as the director of the foundation.

    I'm sure starting a new foundation is a big challenge, but how exciting to be there from the beginning! What are the biggest challenges that you are facing thus far as the Director of the foundation?

    If you haven't already, I'd encourage you to also join the Community for Religion-focused organizations.

  • Good Morning!

    I’m Bang Geonzon. I’m from Novaliches, QC and am a BPO professional but currently on leave from the workforce to complete my graduate studies. I am residing outside of the PH but will be back by end of this year. I joined this community because of a childhood dream of forming a charitable foundation. I am looking at building a library and arts center in my mom’s hometown in Anda, Bohol in the next 3-5 years, and need this course to help me in making this plan a reality.

    I’m glad to see a PH community here and I hope to learn from each of you. I’ll be happy to extend help also wherever and whenever possible.

  • Good Day! I'm Maria Sepe from Cebu Philippines and I'm working in a Non-Government-Organization, RAFI Center for Leadership at Kool Adventure Camp, as an instructor and facilitator. The primary goal is to equip leaders with character, competence and citizenship through powerful learning experiences , in different mediums such as outdoor rope courses, land expeditions, sea kayaking, urban backpacking and even indoor module workshop sessions, games and initiatives. My role is under Professional Development Program (PDP) which provides leadership solutions towards creating high performing employees, teams, and organizations. Moreso, these PDP programs are highly focussed towards helping sustain our Youth Development Programs specially for the public school leaders and students who undergo a 3-day camp and create change projects that could impact the school, organization and community they as a whole. I have decided to join the community to gain more skills through the courses available, to build partnerships and hopefully widen the impact of the initiatives that the entities in this community do, through collaboration. All the best!

  • Hi All!

    My name is Krizel and I work for a corporate foundation whose focus is on education, through scholarship and supporting Alternative Learning System Community Learning Centers. More recently, we have been actively promoting disaster awareness and preparedness through 2 programs called "Rapido" and OurHelp. The former is a volunteer corps who aims to provide immediate disaster response especially in calamity-stricken areas, while the latter is a microinsurance donation website (www.ourhelp.org) which aims to provide protection to the members of vulnerable communities in the Philippines by giving them a chance to bounce back after a major calamity/accident. It is available for local and international individual/corporate donors, and people are free to check the website to view the profiles of donees who they might want to insure.

    Looking for potential partners for the programs :)

    Glad to meet your acquaintance everyone!

  • Hi, My name is Frances and I work as a cultural officer at a diplomatic mission focusing on creating projects to raise cultural awareness and art appreciation through festival and exhibition. My section handles programs, costings, marketing, designs and write-ups for all cultural initiatives, including external partnership. As it is a small unit which only has an Ataché and myself, it is an overwhelming tasks to handle different simultaneous projects at the same time. On top of my day job, I am also part of an INGO that handles different projects, but the difference would be that INGO has sections for resource, marketing, implementation and finance.

    Glad to meet you all.

  • Welcome, @wel, @krizel_qb, and @francesacg!

    We are glad you are here. Please check in often and connect with people who you want to meet, start new topics on ideas or articles you might want to share, and welcome others who are new here!

    We loo forward to seeing you often!

  • Hi everyone! My name is Kristoff. I'm on my final stretch of college. I'll be graduating soon this December with a bachelor's degree in literature (yay more sleep!). It has become my dream to work for an NGO; to serve the underprivileged people who have been wronged, abused, and whose dignity and innocence have been robbed from them. I don't know how I became so suddenly passionate about this but I think my course--through the people I met and the books I've read--opened my eyes to the actual world. I became more socially aware and involve. I also have this belief that through literature we can empower and liberate the youth so they can do the same to others, as it did to me. However, I am still practically new on the inner workings of an NGO. The same reason why I enrolled here. To grow my knowledge, skills and experiences. Even, I'm planning to take up a masteral course on community development or whatnot. But I don't know. I'm still actually torn. The other side of me, the creative side, wants to continue on the career path that led me to my course. Anyway, I think I have said enough. Thank you for this opportunity. I hope to meet all of you and learn from everyone here! Salute to you all for wanting to create impact and change!

  • I am Ruben G. Tecson, a CPA and computer programmer and semi-retire in Cebu City. I have enrolled three (3) courses of this P University . My initial purpose for enrolling it is for learning process and I can understand my NGO's clients here in the Visayas and Mindanao areas. I am interested to join this community so that I can contact as many friends who are interested in NGO's activities. Thanks

  • Hi everyone! I am Apple. A fresh graduate and is an Agricultural and Biosystems Engineer. I am currently working in the Department of Agriculture Regional Field Office 12 under the High Value Crops Development Program. This is my first job after my bachelor's degree. I believe in lifelong learning and I am interested in making the farming of our country more efficient than it is now by improving my knowledge and experience in mechanization and automation. Enrolling in different online courses is one of my ways to learn while learning at work . I do hope I could use this community to meet, learn and grow with you people.

  • Hello everyone! I am Joseph Gabriel Educado and I am joining from Silay City, Negros Occidental, Philippines. I am a young public elementary school teacher and a former Teacher to the Indigenous People (TIP) for the Sibato Bukidnon Tribal Community. Aside from being a public school teacher, I am also a co-founder of the regional chapter of YOUTeacH Philippines - Negros Island - a movement of young teachers committed to helping preserve each other’s ideals and pursue each other’s dreams. Under this organization, my team was able to conceptualize and put into motion our flagship project called, "Mission BridCon (Bridging Connections)" with an aim to bridge connections between and among LGUs, private institutions or agencies and public schools for the sustainable development of students and even (young) teachers to give solutions on the existing issues in the field of education through the provision of learning materials, school supplies, training for teachers, guidance and counselling, sports development, healthcare, and livelihood programs. Thus, teacher’s capacity and ability to educate is nearly relative to a student’s capacity and ability to learn.

    Concurrently, being a fellow in the Future Bridging Leaders Program 2 (FBLP 2) of the Asian Institute of Management, I am also undertaking prototyping of my community project called, " Payag Kahirup" (Hiligaynon words for "house" and "unity" respectively). It is a social venture involving the tribal women of the Sibato Bukidnon Tribal Community in collaboration with the IP teachers of Sibato Integrated School which seeks to empower and build the capacities of the tribal women to combat poverty and malnutrition of their children through the project's 5 phases - Education & Awareness, Livelihood Training, Leadership & Management Training, Business Establishment, and Monitoring & Evaluation. This project is now in motion and will be pitched this coming January 2019 to potential funders at AIM.

    Hi Jordan, great to have you in the community, i am aware of the JCI and it's great to know that you want to focus on YOUTH. EMPOWERMENT and VOTERS EDUCATION. For advocacy methods and practices, allow me to share some thoughts:
    a. The role of Social Media Platforms to advocate your cause, share events and influence followers.
    b. Use ISSUE BASED APPROACH. Stick with the issue. Identify the problem and cause of the problem. Find solution and implement those solution.
    c. DOCUMENT. take videos, photos and share impact stories of your project or advocacy.

    Hope this would help you out. Feel free to initiate questions. Have a great day.
