Share the Love with ILOVE
Investments in Loving Organizations for Village Economies (ILOVE) Foundation uplifts the hearts and mindset of every Filipino and inspires them to love, appreciate, and honor our country's natural resources. These are God’s gift to us that we should protect and use responsibly for the benefit of the country and its people.
Our aim is to get the Philippines out of poverty and transform marginalized communities into sustainable localized economic zones through community-based ecotourism and organic agriculture that ensures inclusive growth.
The key to achieving these goals are change agents—loving organizations around the country that are focusing on the place’s strengths and responsibly using the natural resources for the benefit of the community and future generations.
In 2018, ILOVE Foundation launched 'Quest for Love' a nationwide search for loving organizations seeking to promote wide-spread social and environmental development. Those who were interested to join this competition were required to submit the social issue that they are trying to address and their LOVE plan or proposal for the community.
Participating organizations went through an area development boot camp, community visits, and other screening procedures. In the end, ILOVE Foundation in partnership with SEARCH (Social Economy Action Research Foundation), the social enterprise research arm of the foundation, chose these deserving organizations as winners:
- Aggrupation of Advocates for Environmental Protection (AGAP)
- Health Futures Foundation, Inc.
- Lake Sebu Indigenous Women Weavers Association Inc. (LASIWWAI)
- Busikong Greenland Multipurpose Cooperative
- Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation, Inc.
- Rural Improvement Club Federation of Kape Maramag
- Mindanao State University – Tawi-Tawi College of Technology and Oceanography
- University of Cordilleras
- Got Heart Foundation
All of the winners get financial and technical support from ILOVE Foundation and its partners. They also have a one-on-one guidance program with its pool of mentors which lasts for eight months.
To reach more donors, 'Quest for Love' and its winners are featured on Gina Lopez' award-winner show: the G Diaries Season 3. We have also partnered with National Geographic (Nate Geo) to showcase the communities supported by our loving organizations.
