In February 2011, a team of experts spearheaded by CSR conducted a situational local analysis of a community in Siocon, Zamboanga with the objective of helping TVI Mining Company explore avenues for sustainability within its area of operation.
To do this, the team conducted a Rapid Rural Assessment (RRA) and assessed existing Sustainable Development Management Programs. At the end of the project, the team provided TVI Mining Corporation with a comprehensive inventory of resources and capabilities available in the community and a report on the assessed impact of existing projects/programs implemented.
The Breakthrough Innovation Prize, organized by the Fisherman Foundation, the S.E.Ven Fund Consortia, and the University of Asia and the Pacific – Center for Social Responsibility, was a grant-giving search for innovative business ideas that can create impact on poverty alleviation in the Philippines.
