ICM’s Philippine Executive Committee joined Cross International’s Leadership Conference September 6th– 7th at a retreat center in Tagaytay, Philippines. The focus of the conference was to develop collaborative ways to address the complex problem of poverty in the Philippines.
The conference was a great opportunity to learn about what other development organizations are doing in the Philippines and to learn from each other’s successes and experiences in working with the poor. The featured speaker (via videoconference) was Mr. Robert Martin from First Fruits, an organization who give grants to Christian organizations in the developing world.
A special thank you to Cross International and the Center for Community Transformation for hosting such a beneficial conference!
