Synergy of Missions
For almost a decade, the Center has advocated for a society without divides similar to how TEFI strives to uplift lives through relevant and sustainable programs and provide significant impact to the country’s growth and development, which is only possible with a peaceful and secure environment, good economic opportunities and equal access to basic services in communities. The Center shares in the belief that creating this enabling environment is a complex task, and we must look to the emerging future for solutions. It has thus, advocated for accelerated change through its capacity building programs in various areas of focus: good governance and peace building in the ASEAN region and Mindanao, multi-stakeholder collaboration in the extractive industries, and developing youth leadership.
The Center and TEFI recognize the limitless possibilities of the Filipino youth in shaping their future, and this spurs us to take on the challenge of developing globally competitive Filipinos and innovative youth leaders who will be catalysts for social change. The collaboration will be an alignment of missions premised on the common goal of bridging gaps and improving quality of life, through relevant and sustainable programs on leadership, education, engagement and community-building. Beyond creating a breed of young Bridging Leaders who will be catalysts for positive change, the partnership also aims to create space for cross-learning and integrating best practices of both institutions that will facilitate ideas for relevant and sustainable development initiatives to be implemented as well as deepening existing ones on the ground.
