ASKI Foundation, Inc. gets recognition during 2019 Ang SUSI Awards
The ASKI Foundation, Inc. was hailed as the winner for the Environmental Impact and Community Service Category during the 2019 Ang SUSI Awards of the Philippine Council of Associations and Association Executives (PCAAE) held at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) on November 27, 2019.

The winning projects include the "Building Resilient Communities through Disaster Preparedness" and "Implementation of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in the Rural Communities" managed and implemented by ASKI WASH and Housing Unit.

ASKI Foundation, Inc. President Vibien De Guzman, received the awards and delivered the acceptance speech.

In her message she highlighted that due to strong typhoons, many ASKI clients and their community experience serious damages to their businesses and assets. "In the past, ASKI's initiative is focused on relief and rehabilitation. Following the typhoons in 2009, we recognized the need for strengthening the disaster preparedness efforts within the institution and at the community level. Thus, ASKI increased its disaster preparedness efforts in several ways, such as the creation of a Disaster Risk Reduction Team, the publication of a guidebook on Disaster Risk Reduction and Business Continuity in partnership with Oiko credit, establishment of a resiliency fund, rehabilitation and bridge loans and also enrollment of our clients on microinsurance products to help mitigate the risk."

In addition, she also mentioned the continuing partnership of ASKI and Water.Org for the WASH Program Implementation. The WASH program aims to provide access to safe water and sanitation to poor households in various ASKI covered communities.

This program is aligned with Water.org's vision, of the day when everyone has access to safe water and the dignity of having a toilet. The WASH Program is also the support of the organization to the UN SDG No. 6 Clean water and sanitation for all.

ANG SUSI Awards or "Associations nurture National Growth through Social Unity and Sustainability Innovations" is the first and only search for the best associations and association executives in the Philippines which recognizes the association sector's contributions to national sustainable development.
The Foundation extends its appreciation to all the Business Units and Departments under the ASKI Group of Companies headed by its President and CEO Rolando B. Victoria, the management and staff for diligently working together to achieve the common goal of helping the marginalized people and communities.
