About the Triennial Awards:

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. Beyond the recognition, RAFI believes that the work of the finalists and awardees should be documented and their inspiring stories continuously shared. Hence, RAFI initiated the RAFI Triennials Public Exposure and post awards engagement program, including the RAFI Triennial Awards 2nd Leaders of Change Forum.

The forum was organized in partnership with the Ateneo de Davao university through its Political Science and History Program under the Social Sciences and Education Division and the School of Arts and Sciences; Samahan ng mga Mag-aaral ng Aggham Pulitika ng Ateneo; Brokenshire Integrated Health Ministries Inc.; Institute of Primary Health Care; and Davao Light and Power Co..

I hope I can still attend the next Leaders of Change Summit!
