Throughout the years, NAFCON has provided immediate and long-term assistance and resources to victims of labor trafficking. Our advocacy is made possible through partnership and collaboration with lawyers, government agencies, service institutions, and organizations of trafficking survivors. We will continue to support the empowerment and leadership of Filipino workers in the broader movement against human trafficking.
BAYANIHAN RELIEF AND REHABILITATION PROGRAM
Natural disasters like typhoons and earthquakes are common in the Philippines. However, worsening climate situation as well as inadequate infrastructure and preparedness programs make the people even more vulnerable. NAFCON consistently responds to the needs of affected communities for relief, rehabilitation, and rebuilding. We partner with tried-and-tested local community-based organizations to provide timely and effective assistance to most impacted families and communities.
HEALTH & WELLNESS INITIATIVE
We gather culturally relevant resources and programs for the promotion of health and wellness of Filipino communities in the US and in the Philippines. We enjoin health workers and professionals to support and organize health clinics in areas where health services are lacking. This initiative includes a medical mission in an underserved community in the Philippines in the summer of 2020 with a goal to serve 1,000 patients and launching culturally sensitive health clinics across the United States.
COMMUNITY-BASED LEARNING PROGRAM
Our community-based education program ensures the well-rounded understanding of our culture & heritage as it relates to the evolving conditions of Filipinos globally. This program brings our participants outside of the classroom into communities to experience firsthand and develop a deeper understanding of the conditions of the Philippines. We also promote the connectedness of Filipinos in the Philippines and the United States.
This annual conference is packed with skills building activities and leadership training for Filipino youth and leaders in the community. Our vision is to empower our participants, celebrate our culture, and broaden our community engagement for Filipino concerns.
