ADFIAP Consulting (AC) was invited to the awarding ceremony of the Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Transformation’s (ASSIST) “Ten Photos to Shake the World” photo competition held at the Filipinas Heritage Library on March 6, 2012.

The Philippine-based ASSIST www.assistasia.org is an international non-government organization focused on capacity building and seeks to promote sustainable practices to address social problems in the developing world, with focus on Asia and Africa. ASSIST’s goal is to empower its target groups to make them resilient to the social, economic and environmental challenges. It has also operations in India and Vietnam and manages projects in over 10 countries.

Aligned with ASSIST’s “triple C” approach: communicate – collaborate – capacitate, the problem of environmental degradation was communicated through photos aimed at awakening environmental consciousness to achieve sustainable transformation through collaboration with concerned agencies and institutions willing to capacitate target groups to become agents of change.

AC is exploring cooperation opportunities with ASSIST based on synergies and common advocacies in the areas of micro, small and medium enterprise (MSME) development and finance, sustainable consumption and production (SCP) and green finance. Other joint initiatives being explored include partnership in grant proposals, project management, development of toolkits and e-learning content as well as other capacity building activities.

AC was represented in the event by Ms. Cora D. Conde, Group Head, Ms. Cecile Ibarra, Head of Advocacy and Training, and Ms. Arlene Orencia, Head of Projects and Programs. Shown in the photo with the AC Team are ASSIST partners from the Philippine Center for Environmental Protection and Sustainable Development, Inc. Mr. June Alvarez, Executive Director and Ms. Rodora Catibog, Programme Consultant.
