Partnerships Against Poverty Summit - Angat Buhay - OVP

Partnerships Against Poverty Summit


On 30 June 2016, Leni Robredo took her oath as the 14th Vice President of the Philippines. In her inaugural speech, she called for unity among the people despite differences and perceived divisions to bring to fruition the desire for real change. She continues to push for the strong collaboration of government and the private sector to bridge gaps and unlock barriers that keep the poor in the margins. At the heart of the Office of the Vice President’s (OVP) advocacy are Filipino families – those vulnerable and marginalized – who need only to be empowered and be provided with the necessary support to give them a decent chance at improving their lives.

Upon hearing the plight of stakeholders through Vice President Leni Robredo’s frequent visits in far-flung communities, and after a series of consultations with partner organizations who have signified their intent to work together in the administration’s campaign against poverty, on 10 October 2016, partners and stakeholders will gather together for the first Partnerships Against Poverty Summit organized by the Office of the Vice President.

Through the event, the OVP seeks to:

  • Present the anti-poverty framework of the OVP and establish its bridging role between partners and vulnerable and marginalized communities
  • Continue discussions on approaches to addressing poverty by looking at convergent local anti-poverty implementation models
  • Determine clear areas of engagement and formalize partnerships with and among national government and Civil Society Organization partners that are aligned with the needs of identified priority areas”
