Poverty is a complex social problem and it requires tremendous effort and resources to overcome it. AscentPH is doing its share by working to ensure that five million people climb out of poverty by 2050 through concerted efforts with different groups and individuals. Some might say that it’s a tall order, but we know it can be done if everyone pitches in.
Our work is always based on equality, social justice and sustainability and is participatory in nature. Our programs do not function separately from each other but are always interconnected. We know that only through this “interconnectedness” of programs can we forge ahead with empowerment and poverty alleviation.
