What We Do

LIFT Philippines helps improve systems and structures to make marginalized rural Philippine communities better, safer places to live.

We Research, Design, Implement and Monitor

Each rural community faces unique challenges. We listen to and work directly with community leaders and together we develop a strategy to address the root causes of poverty using solutions that are proven to have the most effective and lasting impact. Our philosophy will always be to prioritize those most in need and stretch our resources broadly to reach and benefit as many people as we can.

We Use a Community-Based Approach (CDD)

Community-Driven Development (CDD) is designed to empower communities in need by giving them control and ownership of the economic development process. CDD understands that poor communities are in the best position to know what they need to improve their lives and livelihoods. Through cooperative efforts, they are empowered with the education, training, resources, funding, and ownership to achieve their goals.

We Buy Local

High quantities of free goods sent to communities from outside the Philippines can flood the market and hinder or halt local business, resulting in a negative long-term impact on the community. By buying local products and services, we ensure that communities receive the support they need to grow and thrive, and that the local economy is stimulated, creating new opportunities for growth within the community.
