The Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) bagged an “Anvil Award of Merit for public relations tools—Publications, Special Publications” for the 5th RAFI Triennial Awards book.

The book is a documentation of inspiring stories of hope of people and institutions “going the extra mile” for positive change, as well as best practices in community development.
The articles written for the special publication provided an in-depth narration of the works of the finalists―what motivated them to undertake community development work, what they do for their communities and their impact, what strategies they implemented, what challenges they faced, and how they addressed them.
The publication of the book was also to acknowledge the finalists’ efforts and affirm their contribution to create positive change in their respective localities in the Visayas and Mindanao.
The book also sought to show appreciation and continue inspiring people who were in many ways involved in the search process.
The RAFI Triennial Awards is conferred every three years to honor those men, women, and organizations, who, through their efforts and selfless commitment bring about change in the lives of the less-privileged in various groups and communities in the Philippines.
