RAFI holds public exposure, post awards program for Triennials laureates

To continuously share the inspiring stories of the awardees and finalists of the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) Triennial Awards to the public, RAFI conducted a public exposure and post awards engagement program in Davao last Nov. 20-23.

The program was composed of the RAFI Triennial Awards Xchange Series 7, a face-to-face encounter between and among the awardees, finalists, and other participants to increase awareness and understanding of the advocacies of the laureates through learning visits; 3rd Circle of Laureates Conference, which gathers the laureates to consolidate and plan their initiatives in the next three years; and 2nd Leaders of Change Forum where the laureates showcased to the public the various programs and projects they have implemented.

The laureates and some youth scholars from RAFI visited the Institute of Primary Health Care, Maharlika Foundation, Philippine Eagle Foundation, Malagos Garden Resort, Mrs. Soledad Duterte, Boystown Davao, Visayan Forum Foundation Inc., and Mindanao Baptist Rural Life Center.

During their exclusive conference, the laureates drew up plans for their group, such as exploring more partnerships within and outside their circle and initiating a social movement.

The 2nd Leaders of Change Forum was held in Ateneo de Davao University where sessions on leadership, innovation, teamwork, team play, and engaging the successor generation were provided, bringing about awareness and inspiration from applied principles and approaches and paving the way for collaborating in future initiatives between the laureates and the different stakeholders in Mindanao.

Among the many individuals and institutions from the Circle of Laureates who participated in the public exposure and post awards engagement program include Upi, Maguindanao former mayor and incumbent vice mayor Ramon Piang Sr., Domingo Tadena, Brokenshire Integrated Health Ministries Inc., Institute of Primary Health Care, Glicerio P. Lucrecia, SOS Children’s Village Calbayog, and Edilberto Lantaca, Jr.

The RAFI Triennial Awards was created in 1996 to give recognition to individuals and institutions in the Visayas and Mindanao who make significant contributions to social development. It is one of the capabilities of RAFI in its comprehensive approach to elevating lives and communities.
