The Philippines is an emerging country, rich in biodiversity and natural resources. Its market is rapidly growing, thanks to macroeconomic resilience to internal and external shocks. At the same time, while urban areas are benefitting from a fast growth, rural regions still need to deal with a variety of challenges, above all natural disasters, poverty and underdeveloped markets.
Aiming at efficiently tackling these challenges, People in Need Philippines has engaged in a wide range of areas. Emergency response, sustainable livelihoods, education, land rights, conflict prevention and social inclusion are just some of the Projects implemented in the past 5 years. Our overall objective is to contribute to the Country’s sustainable development, with a specific attention for women, youth and marginalized communities.
Sustainability, resilience building, human rights and gender mainstreaming are the key principles that guide us in everyday’s work, and we enthusiastically commit to their efficient implementation and acceptance.
In order to be fully effective, in fact, development aid needs to be understood and accepted by the beneficiaries. The values and the expected outputs are regularly shared, while a specific attention is paid in order not to generate any form of dependency. In the Philippines, PIN adopts a Market System Development Approach, investing on the capacity building of local actors and on the creation of sustainable markets.
