Partner with Us

We can shape more young leaders towards building a better Philippines if we work together. This is only made possible with the collaboration between international organizations, such as UNICEF Philippines in partnership with ING; government agencies, such as the Department of Health, Council for the Welfare of Children, National Youth Commission; and other non-government organizations, youth-led and youth-serving organizations, and SK Councils.
